Pac-12 rules 5-7 football teams ineligible for bowl games

Pac-12 rules 5-7 football teams ineligible for bowl games

The Pac-12 has decided that if you only win five games in a season, you will not be going to a bowl game, no matter what. Currently, there is a rule that will allow a 5-7 team to go bowling if there are not enough eligible teams, and you have a qualifying APR. With the number of bowl games, this has become more common over the last couple of seasons. The Utes were actually looking at such a possiblity themselves in 2013 when they were 5-7, but just barely enough teams made it. I find this an interesting decision, because it could potentially hurt the conference revenue wise, since a 5-7...

Utes' Grayson Murphy hopes to end college career on high note at NCAA Championships

Utes' Grayson Murphy hopes to end college career on high note at NCAA Championships

SALT LAKE CITY — Four years ago, Grayson Murphy didn't even know what a steeplechase track race was. Now she just happens to be one of the premier women's steeplechase runners in the country and will be going for a national title later this week. Murphy, a senior on the University of Utah women's track and field team, will be competing for the Utes at the NCAA Track and Field Championships Thursday in Eugene, Oregon. She will run in a semifinal heat that afternoon and if she qualifies among the top 12, will run in the finals Saturday...

New Utah AD Mark Harlan calls himself an ‘all-comer’ guy. Is a change in the Utes’ non-conference scheduling philosophy coming?

Mark Harlan didn’t have much time to soak in the new digs. He was introduced as Utah’s new athletic director, said all the things you say at that kind of event, flashed “the U” a few times and had to hit the airport around 1:30 Monday afternoon. The move to Salt Lake City will soon be underway, but Utah’s new athletic director had to return to Tampa, Fla., with his family to begin the process.

It took Britain Covey time to get back to football shape, but like all Utah fans, he’s counting down the days to fall camp

Britain Covey stepped onto the grass in his parent’s backyard in Provo, gloves on, cleats all tied up, and sprinted off the makeshift line of scrimmage. It was there, a week-and-a-half after he came home from his two-year LDS Church mission in March, that he realized it wasn’t going to be a cinch.

Utah basketball lands a 4-star guard

In poker terms, the Utah basketball coaching staff just got their “full house” with this most recent addition to the 2018 recruiting class. The Utes have received a commitment from Both Gach, a 4-star rated combo guard / wing out of Arizona. The Utes pulled him in over Texas Tech and San Diego State. As you see below he rounds out one heck of a freshman class, and that doesn’t include some JC talent that Coach K is bringing onto campus. GO UTES‼️ ⚪️ pic.twitter.com/eKtx4nVEws— Both Gach (@TutBoth) June 1, 2018 At 6-feet 7-inches, the Utes have them a long guy that they...

Five Utah football kick off times and TV announced

Five Utah football kick off times and TV announced

Ok fans, you can now start planning for your tailgates and house parties as we now know when Utah will be kicking off in 2018 for five games, and which channel they will be on. First up, the opener against Weber State will kick off at 6pm on Pac-12 Network on Thursday, August 30th at Rice-Eccles Stadium. I love Utah’s tradition of opening the season on Thursday, it gets the season started a bit sooner, and then we can really enjoy all of Saturday to watch games without being stressed out over a Utah game. Game No. 2 against NIU will kick off at 5:30, on the road, and it will be broadcast...
