Late season rust - what to do?

I have several areas of rust developing in my lawn. My lawn is a new this year bewitched reno. There's been lots of rust going on in my town this year, but It's so late in the year I'm really surprised that I have this problem now. I sprayed seranade a couple times on the reno area as a preventative measure and did another app of seranade last week when I first noticed the rust start to develop. I know urea is often used to help get the lawn to grow out the fungus, but it's so late in the year and top growth has slowed to a crawl and should be just about done in the next 10 days to 2 weeks or so, so I'm not sure it would be advisable to do a urea app this late. But the rust is there and has spread a bit from when I first noticed it. I'm worried being it's a monostand and can be more prone to fungal issues that I'll get damage if I just leave it. I'm wondering if I do just leave it alone if I'll get over winter damage. Looking for some advice on what my best course of action would be.

I've also been seeing lots of rust around on local lawns and fields.

How high are you cutting right now?

I'm cutting at 2", no fungicide, and no fungus issues.
