Rising’s QB Sneak TD Ties The Game Against USC
SALT LAKE CITY – It was a drive filled with penalties on both sides but Utah was still able to get a touchdown by Cam Rising to tie the game against USC.
Utah had to grind out that drive with 10 plays but Rising had a QB sneak touchdown on the one-yard line to tie the game at 35 with 10:55 remaining in the game.
It’s the second rushing touchdown of the game for Rising and the fifth this season. He had 10 carries for 59 yards on the ground while completing 24 of his 34 pass attempts for 356 yards and two touchdowns through the air.
WE ARE ALL TIED UP! 35-35!!

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.
