Rivalry Game Breakdown: When Utah has the Ball

BYU’s Defense While Utah has a definable advantage on defense vs the BYU offense, when Utah has the ball is the matchup Utah fans are looking forward to, and BYU fans who’ve been paying attention probably have some trepidation about.

The First PAC-12 Classic

I remember walking through the portal and up to my seats at the Memorial Coliseum, a gargantuan structure just off Figueroa in the heart of South-Central Los Angeles. Having grown up in L.A. I understood the historical significance of it all. I took a deep breath and looked around the stadium, which was a sight I won’t soon forget. Utah was now “big time”, and it was clear that we were a long,...

Looking Back at the Utes Tenure in the Pac-12

The Utes are entering their 11th season as members of the PAC-12 and before looking ahead to the 2021 season, a look back at the highs and lows of the prior 10 seasons is appropriate.
