SALT LAKE CITY – For the second straight time in the game and on consecutive drives, Utah quarterback Cam Rising scored a rushing touchdown against UCLA.

It took Utah 10 plays to find the end zone but Cam Rising scored on a nine-yard run. The Utes trailed UCLA 28-25 with 11:39 remaining in the game. It’s the second rushing touchdown of the game for Rising and the sixth this season.

Through that point in the game, Rising completed 18 of his 26 pass attempts for 238 yards and one interception. He also ran the ball nine times for 50 yards and two TD’s.

About Utah/UCLA

UCLA may have the upper hand in the entire history of their games against Utah, but the Utes have been the ones with the strong showing recently in the series that dates back to 1933. Since then, the Utes and Bruins have met a total of 19 times with UCLA having a lead of 11-8. However, Utah has dominated the series with UCLA not winning a game since 2015, and getting absolutely drubbed in Salt Lake City last year, 44-24.

This year could be different for the Chip Kelly-led Bruins who are currently ranked No. 18 in the country after an impressive win over Washington the weekend before. Utah for their part will be coming into Pasadena ranked No. 11- their highest rank in 2022 since being No. 7 to start the season.

Coach Kelly’s time in Pasadena has been anything but smooth. After a reign of terror in Eugene between 2009 and 2012, Kelly has been a little underwhelming as a head coach since. However, the Bruins have steadily gotten better year by year since he took the job in 2018, though it’s taken longer than fans wanted.

Right now, Kelly is in the process of going from a minus in the win column to a positive, currently sitting at 23-25 as the head coach of UCLA. A win against the Utes will get Kelly that much closer and get the proverbial monkey off his back of not beating Utah since becoming the head coach of the Bruins.
