Dalton Kincaid Makes Impressive Touchdown Catch Against Colorado
SALT LAKE CITY – Utah Utes tight end Dalton Kincaid made an impressive touchdown grab in the final seconds of the first half against Colorado.
With three seconds left in the second quarter, Cam Rising found Dalton Kincaid for a 29-yard touchdown to give Utah a 42-0 lead over the Buffs.
It was an impressive catch for Kincaid since he had to adjust his body while the ball was in the air and grabbed the ball with two defenders near him. Kincaid looked like he got banged up on the play and got a head start to the locker room. In the first half, Kincaid had five catches for 102 yards and one TD. Rising completed 17 of his 19 pass attempts for 234 yards and three touchdowns.
It’s the eighth touchdown catch for Kincaid this season and the 22nd touchdown pass by Rising.

The Buffaloes sit at 1-10 on the season after letting go of head coach Karl Dorrell midway through. Mike Sanford Jr. has been in charge since, but Colorado has continued to struggle to put much together.
Utah on the other hand needs to get the bad taste of last week out of their mouth having squandered an opportunity to stamp their ticket to Vegas against a wounded Ducks team. The Utes need to beat Colorado and hope for some help from other conference-mates to make another run at the Pac-12 Title against USC next week.
As mentioned above, Colorado has been operating under interim head coach Mike Sanford Jr. If that name sounds familiar to Utah fans, that is because Sanford’s dad spent 2003-2004 with the Utes as their offensive coordinator and running backs coach. Sanford Jr. very likely is coaching in his final game at Colorado as rumors swirl about the Buffaloes pursuing Jackson State head coach and NFL legend Deion Sanders.
The Buffaloes rely on three different running backs pretty regularly in Deion Smith, Alex Fontenot, and Anthony Hankerson. Smith has rushed 81 times for 390 yards and two touchdowns. Taking off 58 times is Fontenot, who adds in 304 yards to Colorado’s rushing attack along with a touchdown. Finally, Hankerson has rushed 60 times for 228 yards and two touchdowns.
Colorado also has three receivers they seem to rely heavily on in Jordyn Tyson (22 receptions, 470 yards and four touchdowns), Montana Lemonious-Craig (21 receptions, 333 yards, and three touchdowns), and Daniel Arias (19 receptions, 309 yards, and one touchdown).
Utah and Colorado is televised on the Pac-12 Network.
