Updated: November 9, 2013

Salt Lake City, UT ( – Taylor Kelly’s 14-yard touchdown pass
to Richard Smith with 2:37 remaining completed a fourth-quarter comeback that
lifted No. 23 Arizona State to a hard-earned 20-19 decision over Utah in a
Pac-12 matchup.

Kelly added a pair of rushing touchdowns in addition to completing 19-of-31
throws for 144 yards. Marion Grice ran for 136 yards on 20 carries to help
Arizona State (7-2, 5-1 Pac-12) rally from a 19-7 deficit and maintain a one-
game lead atop the South Division.

Travis Wilson tossed two touchdown passes for Utah (4-5, 1-5), but had two
late interceptions and went just 6-of-21 for 121 yards through the air. Dres
Anderson compiled 100 yards and a touchdown on four catches in the loss, the
third straight for the Utes following their upset of fifth-ranked Stanford on
Oct. 12.

Utah mustered just 247 total yards and generated only one first down in six
drives after building a 12-point lead on Sean Fitzgerald’s 12-yard touchdown
grab with 5:19 left in the third quarter.
