Utah’s season, and its QB’s, rearranged against Utah State

Utah, seemingly the biggest threat to USC in the Pac-12 South, suffered a 27-20 overtime loss Friday night at Utah State, and its starting quarterback, Jordan Wynn, sustained another in a long series of shoulder injuries.

Wynn was injured late in the first half. Salt Lake City newspapers reported it as a left-shoulder injury, but did not ascertain the severity. Wynn has suffered through several of them on both shoulders in his Utah career.

His loss, if it’s prolonged, could crimp Utah’s chances of making a run in the South. Listed on the depth chart this week as his backup is Jon Hays, who quarterbacked the team a year ago after Wynn got hurt against Washington, and indeed, Hays finished 12 of 26 for 154 yards in relief of Wynn against the Aggies. But the Utes clearly regard true freshman Travis Wilson as their future at that position, and have been using him in wildcat situations in the first two games.

Both Hays and Wilson threw a touchdown pass Friday night after Wynn exited.
