SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - Terrance Cain passed for 286 yards and two touchdowns in his Utah debut and the 19th-ranked Utes extended the nation's longest winning streak by beating Utah State 35-17 on Thursday night.
Matt Asiata ran for a career-best 156 yards and two touchdowns as the Utes won their 15th in a row, beating longtime Utah assistant Gary Andersen in his first game as Utah State's coach. Utah has won the past 12 in the rivalry.
The Aggies kept the score close by forcing three turnovers and getting a 96-yard touchdown run by Robert Turbin, but overall Utah was in control most of the night. Utah State was 0 for 12 on third down and finished with 342 yards.
Cain, a junior college transfer, was making his first start for Utah and finished 20 for 30 with one interception.
