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. The No. 22 Utes squared off against Colorado State in the Royal Purple Las Vegas Bowl, and after stopping the Rams on their opening drive, they reached deep into the bag of tricks on their very first play from scrimmage. OK, let’s break this thing down...

Watch: Vegas baby! Utah ran a trick play on their first offensive play

When in Vegas…. On their first offensive play the Utah Utes rolled the dice in the Las Vegas Bowl. Just a simple hand-off to the RB, pitch to the back-up QB, throw back to the starting QB and then a heave downfield for a 38 yard pass. Those tricky Utes. Travis Wilson scores an 8-yd TD after this trick play. http://t.co/pjucrRddKf 7-0 Utah. #LasVegasBowl — ESPN CollegeFootball...

The Utah football team will...

Utah Utes Basketball: Predicting the New Starters

There once was a man named Albert Einstein. He may have said my favorite definition of all time. Insanity is doing the same thing repetitively and expecting different results. Thankfully the Utah Utes coaching staff is proving they are not insane. Through watching tape and some statistical analysis, Larry Krystkowiak said in his press conference that he would be mixing up the rotations...

Video: The Las Vegas Bowl Brought Showgirls To Officially Invite Utah To The Game

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. The invitation featured Elvis Presley’s “Viva Las Vegas,” and a couple of showgirls, as well as a ridiculous assortment of bowl gifts. It may not be the Sugar Bowl or the Rose Bowl, but Utes players...

WATCH: Ref Knocked Out of Wichita State-Utah Game After Taking Hard Hit During Opening Tip-Off

When the Wichita State Shockers and Utah Utes were getting set for the game to start Wednesday night the ref was probably thinking something like "I hope I throw the ball straight up" or "my knees hurt" or "these vertical stripes sure are slimming." They probably don't think "Gee, I sure hope one of these giant kids drops a massive elbow on my head."But for one poor guy that is exactly...

Utah Utes Football: 3rd and Long

Back when the Utes announced that Dave Christensen was coming aboard as the newest Offensive Coordinator, fans were ecstatic at the possibilities he brought along with him. We heard phrases like “high-octane”, “fast paced”, “high scoring” to describe the type of offense that was going to be installed. Tight Ends and Full Backs were going to be a casualty as this “offense”...

Arizona Blows Out Utah, Keeps Pac-12 Title Hopes Alive

One thing that people always say immediately after the College Football Playoff standings come out is that there’s still a lot of football left to be played and that anything can happen over the final weeks of the season. Arizona proved this point on Saturday afternoon in Salt Lake City. Behind a complete team effort, the Wildcats demolished No. 17 Utah, keeping alive their hopes...

Utah Serving up Chicken Broth and Hot Chocolate to Players on the Sideline

What? In conditions that included temperatures in the hight 30’s and winds between 15-20 miles per hour, the Utah Utes decided that the best way to combat the weather was to serve their players hot chocolate and chicken broth on the sideline of their game against the Arizona Wildcats. This really is something new. The idea behind hot chocolate during a cold day is to be in your...

Utah Utes Basketball: The 2014-2015 Seniors

The senior class may be the most important. Delon Wright carried this team last year and leads through hard play. Will he repeat last years performance?

Oregon Overcomes Utah, Moving Closer to the College Football Playoff

One of the most popular conversation topics throughout the week was whether Oregon belongs in the College Football Playoff. On Saturday evening, the Ducks left no doubt that they deserve a spot in the field if they should win out. That’s not to say that Oregon’s win over Utah was perfect. After all, the offense couldn’t block the Ute front seven early in the contest, resulting...

Utah Utes Football vs Oregon: Preview and Prediction

The Utah Utes face the mighty Oregon ducks this weekend and although they will be facing one of the worst total defenses in the Pac12, don’t expect any miracles from Utah in this one. Oregon’s offense is just too good for Utah’s limited, unbalanced attack to keep pace. The only sign of possible light for Utah’s offense is that Oregon is ranked 118th in the country in passing...

Photo: Utah’s Recruiting Letter To A State Of Florida Recruit References The Wrong High School

As we noted Monday, it’s often difficult for college football staff members to stay up-to-date on every single recruit in the country. USC committed a huge gaffe earlier this week, sending the same “personalized” letter to two different players – get this, who were on the same high school team. Utah is the latest Pac-12 school to make a mistake on the recruiting trail. The...

Utah WR Dres Anderson following in father's footsteps

HOLLYWOOD, Calif. -- As a UCLA Bruin and then later as a Los Angeles Ram, Willie Lee "Flipper" Anderson could fly. As a Bruin, he was Troy Aikman's main target. 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...

Improving team speed became a top priority for Utah after suffering consecutive losing seasons for the first time in 24 years.
