SALT LAKE CITY- Cornerback Clark Phillips III and quarterback Cam Rising had really big days for the Utes last weekend against Oregon State which spurned on a funny meme that fans can now buy as a t-shirt. Step aside ‘Stepbrothers’, the “Ute Brothers” are in the house, and they definitely just became best friends.

You can pre-order the shirt on CPIII.Live and if you select ‘store pick-up’ for the CPIII Pop Up launch on October 15th, you can get a free poster as well.

The ‘Ute Brothers’ Stats

Last weekend both Phillips III and Rising were awarded game balls for their efforts. They also were named the offensive and defensive players of the week in-house for Utah football.

Rising was 19-25 for 199 yards and three touchdown passes while also being the Utes’ leading rusher. Rising gained 73 yards with his feet off of seven rushes, one touchdown, and was averaging 10.4 yards per carry.

On the other side of the ball Phillips III was a difference maker coming down with three interceptions, one of which was a 38-yard pick six. Phillips III was the first defensive player since safety Robert Johnson in 2009 to have a three-interception game.

Phillips III’s efforts not only earned nods in-house with Utah football, but also garnered national and conference honors as well. Both the Walter Camp and Bednarik Awards recognized Phillips III as their defensive player as the week, while he earned the same honors for the Pac-12 Conference as well.

Up next for the Utes they will be flying to Los Angeles to taken on the 18th ranked UCLA Bruins at 1:30 p.m. MT on FOX. Utah will need both players to continue playing at a high level over the next few weeks as Utah will turn around and play host to the #6 ranked USC Trojans the following week. Kickoff for that game is 6 p.m. MT and will also be aired on FOX.

Tavion Thomas: The Train Was Having Maintenance

We all know that life is rarely fair, and it certainly never was fair for Tavion Thomas. The talented running back for the Utes has faced more than his share of hard knocks- some of them self-inflicted, some of them not, noting the T-Train "was having maintenance" to start the season.
