The night before joining the show, Kincaid scored the first touchdown of his NFL career.

“The place is electric,” Kincaid said of the crowd behind McAfee’s set. The crowd chanted “We love Dalton” as the former Ute was introduced.

The former Utah standout then talked about his performance on Thursday Night Football with McAfee.

“It felt good. More than anything, it felt good getting a win,” Kincaid said. “Just excited really going into tomorrow with Utah having a big game, College GameDay. Just excited for the Utes.”

McAfee then asked Kincaid how we expected from the Week 9 matchup between the Ducks and the Utes.

“I’m always riding with the Utes,” Kincaid answered. “At home, Rice-Eccles, there’s nothing like it. The only thing that would make it a little better is if it was a night game.  The MUSS is gonna rocking. Our defense is best in the nation. So it’s gonna be fun to watch.”

McAfee said that “we’ve greatly undervalued the football community out here” in Utah and asked Kincaid what to expect from a College GameDay in Salt Lake City.

“It’s gonna be a long day. It’s gonna be an early morning, a late night,” Kincaid said. “People definitely sleep on Salt Lake City. It’s nothing like Utah. Salt Lake, it’s different. It’s a different little town. So it’s gonna be awesome.”

Utah’s game against Oregon is slated for a 1:30 p.m. (MDT) kickoff on Saturday, October 28. The game will be televised on FOX.
