SALT LAKE CITY UT- NOVEMBER 5: Cole Bishop #8 and Clayton Isbell #12 of the Utah Utes tackle Tetairoa McMillan #4 of the Arizona Wildcats during the first half of their game at Rice Eccles Stadium November 5, 2022 in Salt Lake City Utah.

SALT LAKE CITY – The No. 14 University of Utah Utes ran for 302 yards on the ground in a rain-soaked, 45-20 blowout win over the Arizona Wildcats.

All week long Utah fans have wondered about the availability of quarterback Cam Rising and tight end Dalton Kincaid. Rising is in uniform and expected to play.

Kincaid is not expected to see the field against the Wildcats.
