Utah tops Montana State 92-84

The Utes bounced back from their loss against Butler with a 92-84 win over Montana State on Thursday night. Utah wasn’t able to put Montana State away throughout the game mostly due to the inconsistency on offense. At this point, I’m still not sure if the Utes have a “go to” guy on offense. Both Kyle Kuzma and Lorenzo Bonam can put the ball in the basket, but I’m not sure...

Utah moves up to No. 20 in College Football Playoff Poll

Utah’s streak being ranked in the College Football Playoff poll continues, even after losing to Colorado this past weekend. In fact, unlike the other polls Utah actually moved up after the loss. Last week, the Utes checked in at No. 22, this week they moved up to No. 20. That shows that Utah has respect from the committee with how competitive they’ve been in the Pac-12 the...

Colorado Buffaloes defeat Utah, capture Pac-12 South championship

The Colorado Buffaloes defeated Utah 27-22 to win the Pac-12 South championship. And, judging by how it played on Saturday night, don’t be surprised if Colorado hoists the Pac-12 championship trophy next weekend. That’s not to say that the Buffaloes were perfect.

Utah drops regular season finale to Colorado 27-22

Utah was pretty awesome in two of the three phases on Saturday night in their loss to Colorado. In a game that meant very little to Utah, the Utes just couldn’t get over the hump, in a very symbolic way, against the Buffs. Let’s talk about the various sides of the ball, starting with special teams. This was an awesome game by special teams, as they were directly responsible...

Utah Went from Contender to Spoiler

For much of this season, the Utah Utes were seen as a favorite to win the Pac-12 South, especially after defeating USC 31-28 back in September. However, after the 30-28 loss to Oregon in the final seconds on Saturday, Utah was eliminated from winning the Pac-12 South for the third year in a row in the 11th game of the season. Unlike 2014 and 2015 however, Utah has the opportunity...

Utah drops heartbreaker to Oregon, 30-28

The 11th game of the year is the ultimate bugaboo for the Utes, and it continues to be, as the Utes dropped a heartbreaker to the Ducks 30-28 at Rice-Eccles Stadium. The Utes were able to move the ball up and down the field for large chunks of the game, but just simply stalled out way to often, on a combination of poor play calls, and some poor execution. The Utes had the ball in...

Statistically Speaking- Oregon at Utah

Oregon at Utah has out sized importance as one of the two games the Utes need to get the championship. Preseason, you might have predicted this to be a big time game, with two conference contenders taking a run at each other. Instead, Oregon is 1-6 in conference. They aren’t limping into this contest, they’re being wheeled in on a stretcher. Nonetheless, it’s vital Utah defeat...

Make no mistake about it: this was a huge win for Kyle Whittingham’s squad. After all, Arizona State has dominated this series in recent history, winning 11 of the last 12 meetings.

Washington and Utah are setting the stage for the new Pac-12

When Troy Williams’s fourth-and-15 pass fell incomplete, the Utah faithful groaned as one. The 17th-ranked Utes had pushed the No. 4 Washington Huskies all afternoon, but a late punt return touchdown had the home team down 31-24. Questionable play-calling and penalties got Utah to fourth down, but there wasn’t a soul in Rice-Eccles Stadium who thought the Utes couldn’t tie...

Utah RB Joe Williams talks trash after monster game vs UCLA

Utah running back Joe Williams rushed for a school record on Saturday against UCLA, and then he twisted the knife with a little bit of trash talk. Williams rushed for 332 yards and four touchdowns as Utah outscored UCLA 52-45 at the Rose Bowl. He was so much of Utah's offense that he accounted for 92 percent of the team's rushing yards (360 total) and 62 percent of the team's total...

Joe Williams is having himself a day against the UCLA defense. He just broke off a 55 yard TD run which gives him 315 yards on 23 carries with 4 TDs! The Utes are up 52-38 with 10 minutes left in the fourth quarter! The 315 yards for the game are a Utah school record.

Utah Utes defeat Arizona, emerge as contender in the Pac-12 South

The Utah Utes overcame an early second quarter deficit to defeat the Arizona Wildcats 36-23 . The victory moves the Utes into first place in the Pac-12 South, and makes the team a contender to win the division this fall. That’s not to say that Utah’s win was perfect. It wasn’t. The Ute offense was clearly out of sync in the first half, committing 10 penalties, which were mostly...

The Holy War — the rivalry between Utah and BYU — came down to one gusty play-call Saturday evening. After the Cougars scored a touchdown to make it a one-point game, BYU decided to go for the win in Salt Lake City. Utah was having none of the Cougars’ possible two-point conversion.
