SALT LAKE CITY – For the second time in the first half, Utah Utes running back Tavion Thomas ran in a touchdown against Southern Utah on Saturday.

After opening up the game with a 13-yard touchdown, Tavion Thomas added another touchdown to his stat line early in the second quarter.

Thomas was up to eight carries to 42 yards and two TD’s. Cam Rising completed seven of his 10 pass attempts for 71 yards. Dalton Kincaid had four receptions for 32 yards.

The 2021 campaign was a rough one for SUU only winning a single game and going 0-8 in conference play. Not only are the Thunderbirds breaking in a new conference in 2022 (Western Athletic), but also a new head coach in DeLane Fitzgerald- so far so good for the team. In 2022 they have already matched their win total in 2021 after beating the St. Thomas Tommies 44-13 last week.

The Thunderbirds bring back experience at the quarterback position this year with three-year starter Justin Miller. Despite a rough overall year for the team last year, Miller was consistently a bright spot and appears poised to help Fitzgerald right the ship in Cedar City. In 2021, Miller racked up 4,186 passing yards, 25 touchdowns, 17 interceptions and averaged 220 yards per game. Last week, Miller impressed with a 63.9% completion rate off of 359 yards and three touchdowns.

A familiar name to Utah fans on the Thunderbird roster is former running back Braedon Wissler. He didn’t get a ton of play in last week’s game for SUU, but Wissler’s name might be called on occasion. Last week he had seven rushing yards and 33 receiving yards in the Thunderbird’s win over St. Thomas.

The Utah/SUU game can be seen on the Pac-12 Network.
