UCLA is no longer in control of its Pac-12 South Division fate. And Bruins coach Rick Neuheisel's fate again is in question.
The Bruins got pushed around 31-6 at Utah. The Utes didn't need to pass to win. UCLA did, and it did so badly.
John White rushed 33 times for 167 yards with two touchdowns, while UCLA only rushed for 149 yards total. Bruins quarterback Kevin Prince threw two interceptions -- one of which was returned by Conroy Black for a touchdown that pretty much ended the intrigue in the fourth quarter.
Utah QB Jon Hays was just 5-of-13 for 67 yards with a TD, but he didn't make any major mistakes.
Utah won its third consecutive Pac-12 game -- after an 0-4 start -- and improved to 6-4 overall and 3-4 in conference play. The Utes are bowl-eligible.
UCLA fell to 5-5 and 4-3. If Arizona State beats Washington State tonight, the Sun Devils will then control their fate in the South Division.
