PASADENA, Calif. – Utah Utes quarterback Cam Rising broke loose down the field for a big touchdown run during the Rose Bowl Game against Ohio State.
The No. 11 Utes played the No. 6 Buckeyes at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California on Saturday, January 1.
With 6:24 remaining in the first half, Utah head coach Kyle Whittingham decided to have his offense go for it on 4th and 1 from their own 38-yard line.
Rising ran the ball through a group of players before spinning and bouncing outside. The quarterback’s move pushed him ahead of the defense and gave him an open field.
Rising ran the ball 62 yards to the end for a Utah touchdown.
