PASADENA, Calif. – University of Utah tight end Dalton Kincaid was named the Rose Bowl Pac-12 Player of the Week after his record-breaking performance in Utah's 43-42 win over No. 7 USC.

The Las Vegas, Nev., native recorded 16 catches on 16 targets for a career-high 234 receiving yards and one touchdown. His 16 receptions is the most by a player in the FBS this season with his 234 yards ranking first among FBS tight ends (fifth overall).

Against USC, Kincaid was responsible for 10 of Utah's 31 first downs with eight of his 16 catches going for 15 yards or longer. He was also key in extending drives for the Utes, converting on five third downs with receptions for 23, 19, 17, 12 and 11 yards which included three third down conversions on Utah's game winning drive.

Over the last 21 games at Utah, Kincaid has scored 14 touchdowns (6 in 2022, 8 in 2021), giving him 33 total receiving touchdowns in his career, which ranks second among all active FBS players (first among tight ends). His 2,291 career receiving yards (1,082 yards at Utah) is the most by any active tight end in the FBS as well.
