Utah beats West Virginia 30-14 to win the Zaxby’s Heart of Dallas Bowl

It was a rainy, ugly day in at the Cotton Bowl in Dallas for the Heart of Dallas Bowl, and often times Utah played like the rain, sloppy and sluggish. At the end of the day though, Utah won their 11th bowl game under Kyle Whittingham 30-14 over West Virginia, and really the game was never really in doubt. The Mountaineers were without much of their offense due to injury or sitting...

Utah’s Uniform for the Heart of Dallas Bowl

The Utah Utes have revealed the uniform they will don for the Heart of Dallas Bowl against the West Virginia Mountaineers on Dec. 26. Utah will go red-white-white wearing the satin red helmet with chrome accents that they unveiled against the Arizona State Sun Devils earlier this year. In general, I am not a fan of the road look of a colored helmet with white jersey and pants (not...

Was the early signing period good for Utah?

We just experienced the first early signing period for college football, and Utah signed six kids, but I think the question that a lot of fans may be wondering if, is this early signing period good for the Utes? Honestly, I think it’s a resounding yes, for a couple of reasons, and this is likely the case across the country. Less getting recruits poached Over the years, Utah has...

Utah signs six during first day of new early signing period

The brand new early signing period is something that Coach Whittingham has been saying he’s been wanting for years, and during the first day he and the staff did a really nice job kicking off the 2018 signing class.

Utah could not keep their winning streak up against rival BYU and fell short 77-65 on Saturday night in Provo. From beginning to end the Cougars (9-2) controlled the game.

Utah tops Utah State 77-67 at the Beehive Classic

It was a game where Utah pretty much put it away within the first 17 minutes against Utah State, and then they had to hold on over the next 23 to not blow a 21 point lead. Utah came out on fire, led by David Collette against his former team, and built that 21 point lead on great defense, excellent shooting and crazy energy. Collette was a man possessed in that opening half. He had...
