  • + – Conference co-champions

During the 1995 season, the Utes went 7-4 and were conference co-champions, along with Air Force, BYU, and Colorado State. Despite this, the team was not invited to play in a bowl game, after playing postseason ball for three consecutive seasons previously. All four losses were at home -- the team was a perfect 5-0 on the road.

This team also won two games at home in fourth-quarter comebacks against Fresno State and Air Force. The comeback against Air Force was won in miraculous fashion with quarterback Mike Fouts throwing a pair of touchdown passes in the final 41 seconds of the game, assisted by a rare onside kick recovery after the first touchdown pass.[2]
