Utah starting quarterback Travis Wilson will miss the rest of the season with a concussion suffered in the team's 20-19 loss to Arizona State on Nov. 9, the school announced today in a release.

The injury appears to be a serious one, with an unknown pre-existing condition showing up on tests that may make the injury a career-ending one.
Whittingham said condition isn't thought to be life threatening, but could be if he continued to play— Lya Wodraska (@LyaWodraska) November 18, 2013
Wilson, a sophomore, had 21 total touchdowns on the season and was a fan favorite for the Utes, establishing a reputation as a "legend" early on in his career.
Adam Schulz took over for Wilson in the team's game against Oregon, completing 13 of 30 passes for 181 yards and a touchdown while running for another score. True freshman Conner Manning would play if Shulz received an injury.
