Utes head up to Laramie looking for consistency

Utah makes its only trip to the abyss tonight to take on the struggling Cowboys - all the while looking for some consistency in a game that pretty much could define the season. It's their first of two road games in two tough places and since the next contest is down in Provo against the top-ten Cougars, probably their most likely shot at a victory.

The Utes are coming off a decent win over the Air Force Falcons Saturday, however, have yet to string a group of really good games together. Tonight offers up that chance, though Wyoming has proven to be a historically tough opponent in Laramie for the Utah basketball team. Even though the Cowboys look absolutely dreadful this season. 

They're 1-4 in conference play and somehow managed to beat the San Diego State Aztecs (who, you'll remember, defeated Utah). Since that near-improbable win, they've dropped three straight. Overall, they're only 8-11 on the season and look destined for another below .500 finish finish in conference play. 

Games like this are pretty important. They're important because you're not going to win many road contests in the Mountain West, so you've got to take advantage of the bad teams. Teams like TCU, Air Force and Wyoming certainly fit that definition.

Now hopefully Utah can find some stability and build on their win over the Falcons. Of course, I've been saying 'build on their last win' after every single victory and each time they disappoint. 

Hopefully this time they don't.
