Barton later returned to the sideline with crutches and a walking boot.
After months of speculation on Rising’s injury status, Utah bit the bullet and announced that he would miss the rest of the season on Saturday.
Despite missing Rising, Kuithe, and a handful of other starters, Utah pulled out a 34-32 win over the USC Trojans.

Cam Rising will be able to suit up for the Utes next season under the NCAA’s Medical Redshirt rule.
As long as he doesn’t play a single down, Rising can return despite being a senior.
Bryson Barnes has stepped up mightily in Rising’s absence. He connected on 14 of his 22 attempts for 235 yards and three touchdowns. Barnes is still undefeated as a starter.
