Penn State vs. Utah scores: Live updates, college football scores, Rose Bowl 2023 coverage, highlights

With both offenses still settling in, the Rose Bowl has been even after one quarter with No. 11 Penn State leading No. 8 Utah 7-0. Nittany Lions running back Nick Singleton got on the board first with a 5-yard rushing touchdown run out of the T formation just before the end of the period. Singleton leads the game with 33 yards rushing, while quarterback Sean Clifford has completed 6 of 7 passes to set up the early lead.

Utah quarterback Cameron Rising is off to a slow start with just 11 yards passing and a bad interception on a mistimed fade to set up the Nittany Lions’ touchdown drive. With top tight ends Dalton Kincaid and Brant Kuithe sidelined, Utah has leaned on receiver Money Parks, who has a 12-yard catch and 9-yard carry in the first quarter.

Both Kyle Whittingham and James Franklin have coached in one Rose Bowl each, losing their respective battles to Ohio State and USC by a combined six points. However, the Utes and Nittany Lions have never fought one another on the gridiron. Utah hopes to win its first Rose Bowl, while Penn State is attempting to win its first since 1994.
