Utah Vs. The LA Schools

The Hunstman Was Rockin’ First and foremost the atmosphere at the USC game was great. The UCLA game though, everyone in attendance should be proud of themselves. I’ve probably attended more than my fair share of sporting events. The Huntsman on Saturday night was one of the most electric environments I’ve ever been a part of. Good Job Utes fans!

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
