(KUTV) Tommy Grady tossed 12 touchdown passes to lead the Blaze to a 83-63 victory over the Cleveland Gladiators Friday night at Energy Solutions Arena.

The Blaze also got some help from special teams unit.
Antwan Marsh recovered a second-quarter kick off and returned it to the 1 yard line, one play later the Blaze punched it into end zone to take a 28-14 lead.
On the ensuing kickoff Utah recovered another Cleveland fumble, setting up another score and a 35-14 advantage.
However in the 3rd quarter, Cleveland battled back to get within six points (55-49), but that's when Grady hit Aaron Lesue for a 24 yard touchdown and a two score lead.
