Youmans: Week 12 CFB bets I like

November 20, 2021 10:17 AM

Two months ago, Cameron Rising was a backup quarterback for a Utah team that appeared headed for a middle-of-the-pack finish in the Pac-12 Conference. A quarterback switch changed everything and led to the Utes’ rise.

With Rising as the starter, Utah is 6-1 in conference play and leading the league in scoring offense at 38.4 points per game. Rising has 14 touchdown passes and has not thrown an interception in the past 18 quarters (a span of 129 attempts) while leading the way to key victories over Arizona State and UCLA.

Next up is No. 3 Oregon, the Pac-12’s only hope for a potential spot in the College Football Playoff, on Saturday night in Salt Lake City. The teams are likely to play a second time in the conference championship game on Dec. 3 in Las Vegas.
