Cam Rising Added To Manning Award Watch List

Aug 15, 2023, 3:52 PM

SALT LAKE CITY – Utah quarterback Cam Rising earned a spot on the Manning Award preseason watch list this morning.

Rising is one of 33 quarterbacks named to the preseason watch list for the only quarterback award that includes the candidates’ bowl performances in its balloting. The Pac-12 leads the way with six total selections in the conference.

This is Rising’s third preseason watch list after being named to the Davey O’Brien and the Maxwell Award watch lists earlier in the offseason. Rising was a semifinalist for both awards in 2022.

Utah Football’s Super Man

Rising has had a stellar career for Utah, lifting the team to new heights while hoping to leave the Utes with a little more in his final season.

In 2021, Rising took over the starting quarterback job three games into the season and never looked back. Since then, Utah’s QB1 has led the team to back-to-back Pac-12 Titles and Rose Bowl appearances.

Last year, in Utah’s second Pac-12 Title run, Rising put up 3,034 passing yards on 249-of-385 passing (8 INT, 26 TDs). He added 77 rushes for 465 yards and six rushing scores. Rising recorded 200+ passing yards, including one 300-yard game and a 400-yard game nine times in 2022.

Rising was particularly great and received national recognition for his career-high night against No. 4 USC during the regular season in Salt Lake City. He finished the epic win with 415 passing yards (30-of-44), two touchdowns, 11 rushes for 60 yards and a career-best three rushing scores, while also punching in the game winning two-point conversion.
