Bilo's Quick Foster Farms Bowl Recap

Utah 26, Indiana 24

Indiana missed a FG with 5:34 left, and never recovered, and the Hoosiers have not won a bowl game since 1991 after their loss to Utah in Santa Clara. The Utes marched down for their own FG after the miss, which gave the Utes the win.
Joe Williams broke a Foster Farms Bowl record with 222 yards rushing and a score. Williams rushed for 1407 yards in just 9 games after coming out of retirement. His TD in the win over Indiana was his 10th of the season.
Indiana is now 0-4 since that Copper Bowl win in 1991, and was involved in a controversial firing of coach Kevin Wilson before the bowl. Tom Allen is now 0-1 to start his Hoosiers coaching career. Richard Lagow was off all night, completing just 14/39 passes for 188 yards. He did toss a TD, but was also picked once.
Utah rolled up 470 yards of offense in the narrow win, while Indiana finished with 341.
Indiana finished the season losing 3 of their final 4 games.
Utah broke a 2 game losing streak with the win.
Andy Phillips hit 4 FGs in the win for the Utes, and finishes 21/25 on the season.

2017 Openers: North Dakota at Utah (8/31); Ohio State at Indiana (8/31)
