SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – There is only one team in the PAC-12 that has not lost a conference game yet this season. That team is the University of Utah. 

The team is excited. Fans are excited. Moms are excited. 

Kyle Whittingham’s mom, Nancy is arguably the biggest Utah football fan there is. She couldn’t contain her excitement on Saturday night. Shortly after the game Utah quarterback Cam Rising began to share is opening remarks when he was interrupted by Mrs. Whittingham.  

There was a knock on the soundproof glass that separates the press conference room from an observation area in the north endzone. It was Nancy giving Rising two thumbs up for his performance. 

“The defense did a great job and put us in positions to continue being in places to score,” said Rising right as the knocks on the glass came. 

Rising then turned and smiled at Nancy and gave her a thumbs-up in return.

He and his teammates in the room also shared a laugh about it.
