The leading candidate for the starting quarterback role at Utah was reportedly cited for possession and consumption of alcohol by a minor.

According to the Salt Lake Tribune, citing a statement from the Department of Public Safety/Utah Highway Patrol, Travis Wilson was cited at a Tim McGraw concert and released at the scene.

Wilson, 20, threw for 1,827 yards and 16 touchdowns before his season was cut short by an intracranial artery condition following a concussion, according to the report.

"We are still in the process of gathering information on the incident," head coach Kyle Whittingham said in a statement to the Tribune. "Once we have all the facts, we will handle the situation internally and determine any disciplinary action that should be taken."
