Utah and TCU set to battle for Mountain West baseball title

New, 6 comments

Utah baseball enters their three game set against TCU looking to win the program's first ever Mountain West Conference regular season title. 

The Utes are currently 1.5 games back of the 10th ranked Frogs, though have three more conference losses, so there certainly is little room for error heading into these next three games. The series kicks off today at 5:30 Salt Lake time and you can view the contest on the mtn network. 

If Utah wins all three games, they'll be guaranteed at least a share of the title and could win it outright if TCU loses once to New Mexico in their final conference series of the season. 

So here's to a solid series and the potential for a conference championship. Of course, it might be asking too much for the Utes to leave Fort Worth with three straight wins. The Frogs are a fantastic team and haven't lost a series yet in Mountain West play. 

But that shouldn't diminish what Utah has accomplished this season. They were picked to finish sixth in the conference at the start of the season and regardless of what happens in Fort Worth, will easily finish in the top-two.

That's pretty impressive and it's certainly been a special regular season for Utah baseball. Hopefully it continues this weekend.
