Though the Mountain West Conference no longer has ties to ESPN, the Utes will appear on the network this coming season. Their game against Oregon State, moved to a Thursday, will most likely be broadcast by ESPN and now Utah's game against Louisville has been moved to accommodate ESPN.
Utah's out of conference schedule is set, and the Mountain West Conference schedule will be released April 1st. Here's a look at Utah's current schedule:
|Thursday, Aug. 30||Oregon State||Corvallis, OR||TBA|
|Saturday, Sept. 15||UCLA||Salt Lake City, UT||TBA|
|Saturday, Sept. 29||Utah State||Salt Lake City, UT||TBA|
|Friday, Oct. 5||Louisville||Louisville, KY||TBA|
It'll be a tough out of conference schedule, but definitely set up so that Utah could make some noise if they got through it with no more than 1 loss. I'll tell you this though, that game against UCLA in Salt Lake is going to be great. I just hope Utah actually shows up this time.
