Arizona Vs. Utah Score Update: Wildcats Get On The Board, Trail 20-7 At Half

The first half of the game between the Utah Utes and the Arizona Wildcats wasn't pretty, and the Wildcats head into halftime trailing by a score of 20-7.

Arizona finally managed to get on the board late in the second quarter. Nick Foles capped off a long Arizona drive by connecting with David Douglas on a 23-yard touchdown pass. Foles has put together a solid first half, but had a very costly interception late in the first quarter which led to a Utah drive and a touchdown.

The Wildcats got the ball back after forcing the Utes to go three-and-out following Arizona's touchdown. Arizona had over two minutes to put together another drive and get themselves closer, but after Foles was sacked for a loss of ten yards, they were forced to punt on 4th and 20.

That punt immediately led to trouble, as Utah made it back into the red zone with over 0:30 in the half. Arizona managed  to hold the Utes to a field goal as the first half ended, but now look at a 13-point deficit to start the third quarter.

The Wildcats have managed to get on the board, and the defense managed to hold the Utes scoreless in the second quarter, but the key in the second half will be making the most of offensive opportunities and limiting mistakes.
