GRADES

OFFENSE A

With 669 yards, the Utes had their second biggest offensive output in

history as Alex Smith passed for 341 yards and rushed for 55 yards. Steve

Savoy caught 10 passes for 154 yards and rushed four times for 54 yards

while Marty Johnson rushed for 82 yards.

DEFENSE B-plus

The Utes gave up another long touchdown drive to start the game, but

pretty much shut down the Tar Heels after that. In the third quarter, the

Utah D held the Heels for four straight plays from the one-yard line.

SPECIAL TEAMS: B-minus

The kickoff team gave up several long runs and Bryan Borreson missed an

extra point before leaving with an injury. Matt Kovacevich only had to punt

three times for 45.7

OVERALL: A-minus

It wasn't perfect, but a 30-point victory over a decent Atlantic Coast

Conference team couldn't have gone much better as the Utes improved to 6-0.
