Utah's Eric Rowe pulls off impressive pick-six against WSU
After recording three interceptions against Michigan last week, the Utah defense was at it again against Washington State on Saturday. The Cougars ended up beating the Utes 28-27, as seen on the Pac-12 Networks, but the Utah loss wasn't the fault of its defensive unit, which forced three turnovers on the night.
Five minutes into a scoreless game, senior defensive back Eric Rowe jumped a slant route by the Cougs, softly tipped the ball to himself and returned the interception for an 11-yard touchdown to give the Utes an early lead. It was the first of three scores that put Utah ahead 21-0 before Washington State rallied to beat the Utes at home.
