Utah Utes Basketball: Beating Duke the Irish Way

Breaking news: The Utah Utes play the Duke Blue Devils in the Sweet 16! Okay, I know that isn’t news unless you have just returned from being stranded on an island, Cast Away style. But, that isn’t the point. The Utes need to find a way to win against the Blue Devils. To do that, I looked at the three close battles Duke lost – twice to Notre Dame and once to NC State. I don’t...

Utah Utes Basketball: Where does the road go?

The Runnin’ Utes only have two more regular season games. At the moment  the Utes find themselves ranked 13th, with a pretty solid spot in the tournament, and 2nd place in the PAC-12 in their sights.

Utah Utes Football: Spring Preview Running Backs

With Devontae Booker returning to the Utes, the running back position is all but solidified heading into the 2015 season. I don’t expect Booker to participate much in spring ball, if at all, due to the fact that he is a proven commodity and the Utes don’t need to risk any unnecessary injury to him. Therefore I want to focus on who will be battling it out during spring ball...

WATCH: Utah runs trick play on first offensive play of game

Utah’s coaching staff had a little extra time to prepare for Saturday’s bowl game. Apparently they made the most of it.

When it comes to official bowl invitations, the Las Vegas Bowl certainly lived up to its name, when the bowl representative went to Salt Lake City to invite the Utah Utes to the game.

In 10 years in the NFL, he set single-game records for the most receiving yards and the most receiving yards from scrimmage. Flipper averaged 26 yards per catch.  There's another Anderson averaging a lot...
