Looks like we'll be tailgating one day earlier for the Utah State football game this upcoming season. It was announced today by the U that the game with Utah State is being moved up a day, from Saturday, September 12th, to Friday, September 11th. The move was requested by the Pac-12 Conference and the Pac-12 TV partners.
The game will be broadcast on national TV at 7pm local time, but the channel has not been announced at this point - my guess is that it'll be Fox Sports1. The USU game is the 2nd game of the season for the Utes, following their opener at home against Michigan, eight days prior.
The Utah Athletic Department has always been very accommodating to the Pac-12 and their TV partners when it comes to game days and kickoff times.
The 2015 schedule features seven home games against: Michigan, Utah State, Cal, ASU, Oregon State, UCLA and Colorado. With the Utes coming off of a nine win 2014 season, 2015 shapes up to be a good season, with returning All-Pac-12 running back Devontae Booker, and a took of returning experience on both sides of the ball.
