Updated: Jordan Wynn hurt as Utah falls to Utah State in OT

You couldn’t have asked for a worse start for Utah tonight against Utah State.

In addition to falling behind 13-0 early, starting quarterback Jordan Wynn sustained a left (non-throwing) shoulder injury late in the first half after getting sacked for the 50th time in the game. He would miss the rest of the game and had his arm in a sling.

How severe the injury is — or even what it is — is still unknown right now. Wynn was 6-of-11 for 47 yards before getting injury. You have to feel for the guy, who missed parts of the 2010 and ’11 seasons with similar injuries. Wynn’s spent his career on his back.

Nebraska-Omaha transfer Jon Hays stepped in nicely for Wynn to complete the drive and put Utah in a position to kick a field goal before the half ended, but Utah State ultimately managed to pull off the upset in overtime, 27-20.

It’s not like the Utes didn’t have their chances — Utah State, masters of giving away games, had plenty too, for that matter — but a devastating offensive pass interference call in overtime backed Utah out from inside the 10-yard line to a third-and-goal on the 21. On fourth down, Hays’ pass to DeVonte Christopher was incomplete, though Utah fans might think there should have been pass interference called the other way on Utah State.

But, there wasn’t and the Aggies pulled off the upset (not those Aggies; no more faux wins/championships for them).

Say it with me: W-A-C! W-A-C! W-A-C!
