SALT LAKE CITY – After trailing by two touchdowns early in the game, Utah scored their first touchdown of the game against USC on the legs of Micah Bernard.

It was a crazy sequence of events for Utah that led to the 12-yard touchdown run by Micah Bernard. Cam Rising threw an interception on a flea flicker but it was called back on a roughing the passer call on USC. Bernard scored the touchdown on the following play to trim USC’s lead to 14-7 with 56 seconds left in the first quarter.

It’s the second rushing touchdown of the season for Bernard.

About Utah/USC

Utah hasn’t quite lived up to the preseason hype in 2022 with two losses under their belt at the halfway point. This isn’t to say the Utes have been bad, because they haven’t. Losses are a part of the game, but they also haven’t yet shown that “extra gear” most thought they would have based off of how they finished the 2021 season and who was returning. Could USC provide the type of statement game the Utes need to get back on track?

The No. 7 Trojans will be rolling into Rice-Eccles Saturday night at 6 p.m. MT undefeated and looking to keep that streak intact for the 2022 season. USC also most likely hasn’t forgotten the beatdown Utah put on them a year before in the Coliseum. On the other hand, the Utes also haven’t forgotten it or the events that led to the epic performance. In fact, in a way, they will be recreating that mood by celebrating the life and legacies of Ty Jordan and Aaron Lowe during the game with their annual hand-painted helmets. Basically, this game is going to be huge and emotional for both sides for different reasons.

A player to watch in the game is USC wide receiver, Jordan Addison. The 2021 Biletnikoff winner is responsible for 32 catches so far this season for 479 yards and six touchdowns. Addison has been averaging about 15-yards per play and will present a fun challenge for Utah cornerback Clark Phillips III.
