Last night Utah spoiled the PAC-12’s last chance to get a team into the College Football Playoff for the second consecutive year.
Last year, they handed Oregon their second loss of the season with just a couple of games left in the regular season and then dominated them a second time 2 weeks later in the PAC-12 Championship game for good measure.
This year, they had to wait until the title game to play spoiler, but they took advantage of the opportunity in a big way once again.
After falling behind 17-3 in the second quarter, Utah managed to turn things around and outscored USC 44-7 the rest of the way to hand them their second loss and seemingly put an end to any hopes they had to become the 1st PAC-12 team in the College Football Playoff since 2017.
Before the game, USC quarterback Caleb Williams made headlines for painting “F*** Utah” on his fingernails.
After crushing the Trojans’ hopes of a Playoff spot, Utah QB Cameron Rising was asked about Williams’ fingernails and gave an incredible response.
Cam Rising was asked postgame about USC QB Caleb Williams putting a NSFW phrase on his fingernails.

Don’t give a sh*t. It is what it is. You can do whatever you want. Put whatever you want on your nails. I’m not going to judge you for whatever you do, but hope you liked it
This is just a great answer from Cameron Rising after toppling the Trojans and it’s an answer he really earned last night. Rising shredded the USC defense to the tune of 310 yards and 3 touchdowns on the way to locking up a 2nd consecutive trip to the Rose Bowl.
It may not have been the best idea to give the Utes any extra motivation before this game.
