It was a tense moment. Rising was tended to by team trainers after taking a sack from the Buckeyes. As he fought to keep the play alive and stay on his feet, his head hit the ground hard when he was finally brought down. Rising was was later able to walk off the field on his own, but he didn’t return to the game.

Things were at 38-all at the time of his exit. Rising threw for 217 yards and two scores, as well as a rushing score and nearly 100 yards on the ground. There was no word from Utah on the exact nature of his injury after the game, but it’s good to hear directly from the quarterback.
