PASADENA, Calif. – Utah Utes quarterback Cam Rising broke loose down the field for a big touchdown run during the Rose Bowl Game against Ohio State.

The No. 11 Utes played the No. 6 Buckeyes at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California on Saturday, January 1.

With 6:24 remaining in the first half, Utah head coach Kyle Whittingham decided to have his offense go for it on 4th and 1 from their own 38-yard line.

Rising ran the ball through a group of players before spinning and bouncing outside. The quarterback’s move pushed him ahead of the defense and gave him an open field.

Rising ran the ball 62 yards to the end for a Utah touchdown.

The run stretched Utah’s lead to 35-21.

The score capped a four-play, 71-yard drive that took only 1:38.

After the play, Rising was 9/12 passing for 128 yards and two touchdowns. He added six carries for 91 yards and a touchdown with his legs.

Rising entered the game having thrown for 2,279 yards, 18 touchdowns, and five interceptions this season.

The Rose Bowl Game between Utah and Ohio State is broadcast on ESPN and 700 AM.
