Big sports day for Utes

New, 14 comments

Utah baseball can move to within a game of clinching at least a share of the Mountain West Conference title with a victory over the TCU Horned Frogs tonight. The Utes took game one 7-6 in 11 innings after Tyler Wagner struck out two potential game-winning runs to end the prolonged contest.

TCU still leads Utah by two games in the loss column and could severely dampen the Utes' hopes of winning the conference championship with a victory tonight. 

The Frogs haven't lost two straight at home since falling to Cal State Fullerton in consecutive games back in February. 

Other than the baseball team playing for its shot at the conference title, Utah rugby will take on Cal for a chance to play for the national championship at Rio Tinto Stadium. 

The Golden Bears and Utes last met back in January and Cal walked away with an impressive 34-0 victory in a shortened match during the UCLA Tournament - so they're obviously going to be a tough foe for Utah. The Golden Bears are currently ranked 2nd nationally and Utah is 3rd.

So here's to a good day for the Utes.
