Utah QB Rising Connects With Kincaid For Fifth Time In 2022
SALT LAKE CITY – For the fifth time this season, Utah quarterback Cam Rising has thrown a touchdown pass to star tight end Dalton Kincaid against OSU.
Utah’s defense stopped Oregon State on fourth down. Five plays later, Rising found Kincaid for a four-yard touchdown to give the Utes a 42-16 lead with 12:38 remaining in the game.
It’s the 13th touchdown pass of the season for Rising. Against Oregon State, Rising completed 17 of his 23 pass attempts for 169 yards and three touchdowns. He also ran the ball seven times for 73 yards and a score. Kincaid was up to three catches for 17 yards and a TD.

Oregon State put everyone in the Pac-12 on notice last weekend against #7 USC that they aren’t the “cute little brother” that can be picked on anymore. The Utes know this all too well, falling to the Beavers 42-31 last season at Reser Stadium. Oregon State has the pieces to give #12 Utah a good fight if they are allowed to.
This year Utah hosts OSU at Rice-Eccles Stadium, but that doesn’t necessarily mean anything. Yes, Oregon State has typically performed better at home, and yes, RES is a hard place to play, but the Beavers have done the work to be competitive. A lackadaisical effort from the Utes that allows OSU to get into the game could pose a problem that Utah doesn’t want to have to try and solve.
Head coach Jonathan Smith has done wonders for the Beavers since taking the job in 2018. A favorite son of Oregon State from his quarterbacking days (1998-2001) under legendary College Football Hall Of Fame coach Dennis Erickson, Smith has breathed new life into a program that was getting left behind.
As the head coach of Oregon State, Smith’s record is 19-21 and steadily improving by the year. Smith has helped to make Corvallis a hard place for visiting teams to play and the list of victims (and almost victims) has steadily grown over the years.
