The season ends today, and here's how to catch all the action!

12 games down, and we are now at #13, the Royal Purple Las Vegas Bowl. For Ute fans, it has been a fun season of seeing the Utes find a solid footing in the Pac-12 conference. After a 8-4 (5-4) regular season, the Utes are in a bowl game for the first time since the 2011 Sun Bowl. The season was highlighted by wins over marquee names, such as Michigan, UCLA, USC and Stanford. The 2014 regular season saw three Utes all over multiple All America teams, with Nate Orchard, Kaelin Clay and Tom Hackett. Also, Orchard and Hackett pulled in some big post season hardware, such as the Morris Trophy, the Hendricks Award, and the Ray Guy Award.

All of that comes to a head today as the Utes take on Colorado State in the Vegas Bowl. The Utes are coming off of a win over Colorado, the Saturday after Thanksgiving. Utah's defense gave some in that game, but stiffened at the end. Utah's offense got on track, as Travis Wilson threw for over 300 yards and 3 touchdowns. Kaelin Clay was the recipient of 2 of those TD's, as it seems he has figured out the wide receiver position. Devontae Booker had 95 yards, and should have a big day versus CSU's iffy run defense.

CSU is coming off of a loss to Air Force, 27-24 in Colorado Springs. The Rams finished the regular season 10-2 (6-2) and was 2nd in the Mountain Division of the MWC, finishing behind Boise State. They boast a good offense, behind Garrett Grayson, the MWC Offensive Player of the Year. Grayson has some weapons, most notably Dee Hart at running back, and Rashard Higgins at WR. Higgins is an All American wide receiver, and should be the primary focus of Utah's defense.

It's a battle of old conference foes, and if you're not able to get to Vegas to watch the Utah football/basketball double header, here's how to check it out from the comfort of your own home.
