Utes safety Brian Blechen makes impression on Michigan

Utah safety Brian Blechen had himself a busy first half against Michigan.

First, Blechen absolutely lit up Michigan receiver Devin Funchess, who was trying to make a high catch in the middle of the field. The Utes safety did a great job of not leading with his helmet, making this monstrous hit a clean one. Later on, Blechen intercepted a tipped pass by Michigan quarterback Devin Gardner and followed it up with a nice return.

Utah used a strong defensive effort against Michigan and pulled away in the third quarter before a thunderstorm delayed the inevitable in a 26-10 win.
