Elliss had a remarkable game vs. the Bruins. He accounted for 10 tackles, 5 tackles for loss and 3.5 sacks in the win. UCLA’s offense line had no answers for his pressure at any point in the game.
With that performance, Elliss now leads the Pac-12 with 8 tackles for loss so far this season. His 5.5 sacks on the year also leads the conference through 4 weeks.
He’s been a big part of a Utah defense that ranks No. 3 in the Pac-12 in yards-per-play allowed at 4.57.
Elsewhere in the Pac-12, Washington State’s Cam Ward and Josh Kelly shared the No. 1 spot.
Utah is now 4-0 on the season. It will be fighting for another Pac-12 victory on Friday night on the road at Oregon State.
