Dec 2, 2019
After racking up 122 all-purpose yard and three touchdowns to help lift Utah to its second-straight Pac-12 South title, tight end Brant Kuithe earned Pac-12 Defense Player of the Week honors for Week 14. Kuithe had three catches for 63 yards, with 38-yard and 7-yard receiving touchdowns, and added two rushed for 59 yards – including a 15-yard touchdown run. After outscoring their final three opponents a combined 129-15 as the race for a berth in the College Football Playoff heats up, Kuithe and Utah will return to action against Oregon in the Pac-12 Championship Friday having lost just one game this year.
