Utah missed an open receiver on what would have been game-winning 2-point conversion Clippit/Screenshot

This one is going to hurt awhile for Utah.

The Utes had taken a 21-7 halftime lead over No. 13 USC in Los Angeles, but the Trojans were able to strike back and score 21 unanswered in the second half to take a 28-21.

Utah was not phased, though, as a late drive gave Utah a touchdown with just :42 seconds left in the game. Utah coach Kyle Whittingham was then faced with the difficult decision: go for the extra-point to tie, or go for the potentially game-winning 2-point conversion.

Well they went for it, and quarterback Troy Williams missed an open Darren Carrington in the back of the end zone.

It sounds easy to armchair quarterback here and say that Williams should have stepped up instead of scrambling; a quarterback isn’t going to be able to see everything in the moment. Still, this could be one that haunts Williams in the film room as he valiantly tries to fill in for starter Tyler Huntley.
