Early injury doesn't stop Travis Wilson from leading Utes in key drive

Sep 20, 2014

The Utes had a brief but serious scare when quarterback Travis Wilson went out of the game in the second quarter after landing awkwardly on his head and neck. It turned out that Wilson, who has a history of head injuries, only had a laceration to his face. Once he was patched up, Wilson returned to the game at the beginning of the third quarter with Utah holding a 13-10 lead.

On the first possession of the second half, Wilson needed just five plays to lead the Utes 67-yards down the field and into the end zone on the above 28-yard touchdown reception by Dres Anderson. That gave Utah a 20-10 lead and a buffer to help it hold off Michigan in a tough road environment.

Wilson finished his afternoon completing 14-for-20 passes for a touchdown and 172 yards. Most importantly, it came in a 26-10 win.
