Utah's 2009 conference schedule released

Another sign we're slowly inching toward the start of the 2009 season, the Mountain West has released the schedule for this year. 

Utah opens conference play at Colorado State and UNLV, before three straight home games against Air Force, Wyoming and New Mexico in the month of October. At the start of November, the Utes then travel to face TCU, return to Salt Lake to face San Diego State and end the season with their annual rivalry game against BYU, which takes place on Nov. 28th in Provo. 

My first reaction with this schedule:

The Utes won't have any break once conference season starts, as their bye week is rather early in October. 

However, I think the schedule is actually pretty favorable for the Utes, as they end the season playing five of their last six games in the state of Utah. 

No Thursday games for any team. Who knows if the conference has decided to end Thursday games, or if they'll release them at a later date.

Wyoming on Halloween. That could either be moved or prove to be an awesome environment for football.

Now if only we could skip to September 3rd.
