SALT LAKE CITY – The Utah football team needed a stop and a score in the worst way and they got just that which ended in a two-yard TD by Cam Rising.
That play was set up by Rising who threw a 45-yard pass to Money Parks that put Utah at the two-yard line. Rising ran in the touchdown on the next play. USC’s lead was cut to 21-14 with 4:01 remaining in the first half.
It’s the first touchdown of the game for Rising and the fourth rushing TD of the season.
This play is just so money! @MonterrenParks

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 on 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.
