Defensive Points + MVP's: Utah

Who led the way for the Oregon State defense? Time to take a look at the defensive points and grades from the Utah game.

The Beaver defense definitely didn't let the weather dampen their efforts against the Utes on Saturday giving up 17 points (10 if you take out the touchdown scored after Conor Blount's fumble in the fourth quarter).  Either way, the Beavers scored a solid B average against the Utes led by this week's Giant Killer, safety Devin Chappell.

Chappell was all over the field, accounting for eight tackles, including two for loss.  He also forced a fumble and recovered a fumble on the way to his second Giant Killer award of the season. Brandon Arnold and Xavier Crawford added ten more tackles for the secondary.

Linebacker Bright Ugwoegbu nearly took top honors this week, and like Chappell was very active all day.  Ugwoegbu contributed 11 tackles, including a sack and two tackles for loss. He too forced a fumble on his way toward linebacker MVP honors.  Manase Hungalu and Caleb Saulo each led the team in tackles with 13 and had solid performances for the Beaver defense.

The defensive line was led by tackle Kalani Vakameilalo who had seven tackles, a big performance by a defensive lineman. Defensive ends Phillip Napoleon and Sumner Houston contributed six tackles against the Utes.
