Game day! Finally, after a long winter and summer, Utah football is back. The Utes return to the field against the SUU Thunderbirds for their first ever matchup, Thursday night at Rice-Eccles Stadium.
The last time we saw Utah, they were wrapping up a 10 win 2015 season over BYU in the Las Vegas Bowl. Utah has lost their QB, star RB, a couple WR, and two stud linebackers, but the following recruiting class was the best on paper in Utah history. Utah has brought in JC transfer Troy Williams, and he will open the season as starter for the Utes, as he looks to bring a dormant offense to life.
On defense, Utah returns a lot of familiar faces, but the linebackers have to prove themselves. With an opponent, like SUU, Utah should be able to get a lot of these new guys some good reps, and see how they react in game situations.
It’ll be a fun night, and if you can’t make it to Rice-Eccles, here’s how to catch the game otherwise.
