Stanford Cardinal to start QB Keller Chryst, also play KJ Costello

Stanford Cardinal to start QB Keller Chryst, also play KJ Costello”

They can all tackle. "We didn't do enough good things to win that game".

The Cardinal (4-2, 3-1 Pac-12) beat the Utes for the first time since Utah joined the Pac-12 in 2011.

Utah quarterback Tyler Huntley was on the field in street clothes as Williams got the start.

Making his first start of the season, Williams completed 20 of 39 passes for 238 yards and two interceptions. But last year's starter would proceed to throw back-to-back interceptions on Utah's path for the end zone.

"I just got to play better, bottom line", Willams said. "I have full confidence in my offensive line". Point it at me and the coaching staff.

Utah running back Zack Moss had 79 rushing yards and a touchdown on 15 carries, and Carrington had 99 yards and a touchdown on seven receptions.

Total yards were almost identical, with Stanford gaining 384 yards compared to 382 for Utah.

"Credit to Stanford. They were the better team tonight", said Utah head coach Kyle Whittingham.

"It's a marathon. There's a lot of football, and so player's got to keep that in mind", Whittingham said. "Zero takeaways, you can't win games when you're minus-2 in turnover margin". We have our work cut out for us next week (against USC). We got to keep fighting, which they will. The Cardinal didn't have a turnover and put the game away with the two interceptions. The Cardinal never led by more than 10 points. The Utes marched down to the Stanford 25 on the strength of a 24-yard catch-and-run from Darren Carrington. The first one to Quentin Meeks after being pressured and flinging an ill-advised pass down field, followed by another one with 5:52 left that was picked by Justin Reid. Stanford recovered a subsequent onside kick to run out the clock. Stanford, meanwhile, started the season 1-2 but has since posteddouble-digit conference wins over UCLA (58-34) and Arizona State (34-24) behindLove, who rushed for 564 yards and four touchdowns in the two contests.

ABOUT UTAH (4-0, 1-0): The Utes find themselvesin the early driver's seat as the only unbeaten team in the Pac-12 South withUSC and Arizona State suffering losses last weekend. The Cardinal would have scored on a 12-yard run from Love, but it was called back on a penalty. Utah does not typically discus injuries that are not season-ending.

The Utes had a chance to add to their lead on their ensuing drive, but Matt Gay missed a 50-yard field-goal attempt. In a game of field goals, Moss's yardage was impressive. Toner answered with a 46-yarder to put the Cardinal up 13-10 just before halftime. Utah boasts a formidable defense, which ranks No. 20 in the nation in rush defense, allowing 109 yards on the ground per game. Love averaged 11.1 yards per carry in his first five games. The offense is nowhere near as electric without Tyler Huntley under center.
