Utah's Devontae Booker shines in double-overtime win over Oregon State
Already on a roll and proving to be one of the top running back in the Pac-12, Utah's Devontae Booker made a statement on Thursday night. Two plays stand out on a big night for the junior from Sacramento, California.
The Oregon State defense thought they had Booker corraled for a big loss in the third quarter. They thought wrong. Booker absorbed a hit, stayed on his feet, and spun his way forward to turn what would have been a nine-yard loss into a positive gain.

That might be the best one-yard run of the year.
Booker was saving his best for last, however.
After Trevor Romaine's missed field goal in double-overtime set the Utes up to win the game with a score, Booker did it himself, rumbling in from 19 yards out to seal a wild 29-23 Utah win.
Booker finished the night with 229 rushing yards and three scores on 32 carries.
