SAN DIEGO, Calif. – Sophomore quarterback Cam Rising replaced graduate transfer Charlie Brewer during the third quarter of Utah’s game against the San Diego State Aztecs.

The Aztecs hosted the Utes at Dignity Health Sports Park in Carson, California on Saturday, September 18.

With 5:24 remaining in the third quarter and Utah trailing 24-10, Rising came into the game and Brewer stayed on the sideline.

Through the first two-plus quarters of action, Brewer was 14/26 passing for 104 yards and an interception. He also ran the ball four times for a 19-yard loss.

On Rising’s first series, he went 1/2 passing for five yards before the Utes were forced to punt for the eighth time.

Rising won Utah’s starting quarterback job heading into the 2020 season. He suffered a season-ending injury during the Utes’ first game last year.

Before the 2021 campaign, Brewer transferred from Baylor to Utah and beat Rising out for QB1.

This season, Rising appeared in Utah’s season-opener and was 2/2 passing for 29 yards and a touchdown.

Utah’s game against San Diego State is broadcast on CBS Sports Network and 700 AM.
