SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Dramatic fourth-quarter comebacks are becoming second nature to Utah.

No. 21 Utah handles slow start, snow and Colorado 30-7
BOULDER, Colo. (AP) — It was the No. 21 Utah Utes who weathered this storm, and they have a trip to their first Pac-12 title game to show for it.
Jason Shelley threw for 221 yards and two touchdowns and the Utes mastered the sloppy conditions in a 30-7 rout of Colorado in freezing rain and snow Saturday.
"It doesn't bother us a bit," coach Kyle Whittingham said. "We are up in the mountains in Salt Lake City, so not a problem at all. Our guys handled it very well. It didn't faze them."
Shelley, Shyne help Utah beat Oregon 32-25
SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Jason Shelley may be a freshman and undersized for a major college quarterback, but he doesn't lack confidence.
"We know what we can do. We know we can play. We're here for a reason," Shelley said. "We couldn't wait to prove it."
In his first start, Shelley ran for two touchdowns and Armand Shyne had 174 yards rushing to power Utah past Oregon 32-25 on Saturday.

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — The big question facing Utah when it hosts Oregon is whether Jason Shelley can pick up where Tyler Huntley left off.
Shelley, a redshirt freshman, will make his first career start Saturday against the Ducks in place of Huntley, who broke his collarbone in the third quarter of Utah's 38-20 loss last week to Arizona State.
