UCLA Bruins at Utah Utes Open Thread!

New, 10 comments

Alright, Utah fans, the Huntsman Center is sold out and the No. 4 UCLA Bruins are in town. This UCLA game is going to be one of the biggest home games of the year, with Oregon as the only other contender, since Arizona isn't coming to town this season. The Bruins bring into town a bunch of highly touted, and likely one and done freshmen who have the Bruins flying high, and are eyeballing a top seed in the NCAA tournament.

The Utes are coming off of a convincing win over No. 25 USC just a couple of days ago, while UCLA is coming off of a win over Colorado in Boulder. That means UCLA is visiting Utah on the second game in three days on the Rocky Mountain swing, which is a major advantage for the Utes. I believe this is the toughest road trip in the PAC-12 due to the altitude, and now that it's only a day between the games the chance to recover is minimized.

Regardless, it should be a fun game at the Huntsman, and the crowd should be nuts. Join us here if you can't make it to the game, also make sure to follow us on Twitter for in game updates (@BlockU on Twitter).

Go Utes!
