Their 2011 PAC 12 conference meeting was tight throughout as the Trojans prevailed 23-14 as a -7 ½ point home favorite. USC was up 17-14 and the Utes were lining up for a game tying field goal that was blocked and returned for a touchdown by the Trojans. USC had a lot of trouble on third down as the team converted on just 6 of 15 tries. Lack of third down plays has been a thorn in the side of Trojans quarterback Matt Barkley throughout his college career. The Trojans defense held Utah running back John White IV to just 56 rushing yards on 20 runs from scrimmage. Barkley threw for 264 yards with a touchdown and pick as he hit on 20 of 32 throws in the game. The Trojans bounced back off their road loss to Stanford in week three as they defeat the California Golden Bears 27-9 the following week as a -16 ½ point home favorite. They held just a 17-9 lead heading into the fourth quarter and the Trojans defense held Cal scoreless in the fourth quarter to preserve the win. Utah is 2-0 playing at home and 0-2 on the road in 2012. Their most notable victory came in week three as they beat in state rival BYU Cougars 24-21 as they force several Cougars mistakes in notching the win. Utah is smarting right now after being badly beaten by Arizona St in week four 37-7 as a +7 point road underdog.
