Most of the WSU football team traveled Friday for Saturday's game against Utah, which they lost 24–13 to fall to 1–3 on the season.

"I have so much respect for this team for how they played, I know we didn't win, I know we weren't great, but for them to go out and play as hard as they did with the news they got this morning about their teammate—I think it's a tribute to their character," WSU coach Nick Rolovich said after the loss.
