Will Cam Rising Play Against UCLA This Weekend?

It’s been the number one question on every Ute fan’s mind since the season started- will starting quarterback Cam Rising play?

There was a lot of hope “Captain Cam” would be ready to go against Florida three weeks ago after sustaining an ACL tear in the Rose Bowl against Penn State to start the year. Unfortunately, by all accounts, while Rising was close he also wasn’t quite ready.

That narrative has continued to play out the two weeks since the start of the season as well.

A post shared by KSL Sports (@kslsports)

In Tuesday’s media availability, head coach Kyle Whittingham gave an update on Rising ahead of Utah football’s first Pac-12 conference game against UCLA, begging the question: will Cam Rising play this weekend?

Whittingham appeared to be in a pretty good mood, throwing some jokes around with the media and even answering a question about Rising before it was even asked.

“No. Cam? No,” Whittingham said. “He practiced today, did a great job, but we will know nothing for 48 hours at the minimum. Then of course we won’t make an announcement. You’ll just find out on game day who the guy is. That’s the best I can tell you right now.”

Utah Football Fully Embracing ‘Next Man Up’ Mentality

Utah football has been tested early and often so far in the 2023 football season and it hasn’t phased them one bit citing their “next man up” mentality.

The Utes have had to play the likes of Florida and Baylor without key players with head coach Kyle Whittingham noting as many as 15-16 players weren’t available against Weber State. All three games were wins.

For the young guys and backups getting those valuable game reps, there has been an immense sense of pride in their ability to carry the load in the starter’s absence against quality opponents.
