Utah unveils uni combo for BYU game

Utah unveils uni combo for BYU game

It’s BYU week, so it’s red vs blue, that means Utah is going to a pretty traditional look for the game this weekend. It’s red on red for the Utes, but the look that jumps out to me the most is the helmet. It’s the satin red helmet, but it’s with a traditional white drum and feather, plus the Utah stripe with white instead of the silver we’ve seen most of the season. Also, the face mask is the traditional white. I don’t think we’ve seen the red helmet with the white face mask since the opener last season. The question is what will the Cougs be wearing? The Utah State blue or...

Utah ranked No. 17 in latest College Football Playoff Poll

Utah ranked No. 17 in latest College Football Playoff Poll

The Utes continue their ascent up the rankings with the latest College Football Playoff top 25 putting them at No. 17, up two spots from last week. I was hoping the Utes were jump a little bit more with some of the losses ahead of them, namely WVU, but the Utes will continue to have chances to climb. Utah does fall right behind No. 16 Washington is this week’s ranking, as both teams were top spots lower a week ago. Where the Pac-12 is getting screwed is with Wazzu. They should be ahead of LSU and OU, without a doubt in my mind. The Pac-12 just has this perception about it that is...

Grading out the Utes victory against Colorado

Grading out the Utes victory against Colorado

The Utes are headed to Santa Clara! Utah took care of business early Saturday morning and waited on the edge of their seats as the Ducks defeated Arizona State Saturday night. On a snowy day in Boulder, Colorado, the Utes started slow but eventually took control of the game and rolled to a 30-7 victory. Here are my grades for the Utes’ performance. Offense - A Snowy conditions led to sloppy play to start the game on the part of both teams. The difference was that the Utes were able to adapt and make winning plays on the offensive side of the ball. It took a team effort on the offensive...

Utah Utes redshirt freshman QB Jason Shelley already has big-game experience as rivalry matchup looms

Redshirt freshman poised to play in his first Rivalry Game against BYU, got a good look at things as a redshirt last season.
The Salt Lake Tribune Nov 19, 2018

Utah has beaten BYU seven straight times, but the series is not as lopsided as it appears. All but one of this decade’s games have been competitive.

One of the more clever responses to the University of Utah’s announcement last week about the planned seating capacity (51,444) of the expanded Rice-Eccles Stadium came from a fan who had hoped the increased number would send a message to the Utes' in-state football rival.

Utes move up in both AP and Coaches Poll

After clinching the Pac-12 South Championship yesterday after beating Colorado in Boulder, and ASU losing to Oregon in Eugene, the Utes were bumped up a couple of spots in the most recent polls by the AP and the Coaches. The Utes are now up to No. 18 in the AP Poll, and No. 17 in the Coaches Poll. The Utes are currently ranked No. 19 in the CFP, which will be updated on Tuesday. The Pac-12 is getting a little love in these polls, with Wazzu and Washington holding it down ahead of the Utes, with the Cougars being in the top 10. The Utes will have a rematch against one of those two teams in...
