SALT LAKE CITY — The barking from the head coach started early in the week.

“Don’t be average,” Jim Mora screamed at the players. “Did you come here to be average?”

Mora’s words echoed off walls near the Bruins’ practice facility. They were ringing in ears Thursday in Utah.

“There was nothing average about that one,” quarterback Brett Hundley said.

The Bruins survived for a 34-27 victory over Utah in their Pac-12 opener at Rice-Eccles Stadium. It was an average October night in Salt Lake City, with snow before the game, snow during the game and snow afterward.
