  • Tight End U
  • Some of Utah’s newest players WR Ryan Peppins (Alabama’s Mr. Football) and RB Jaylon Glover (Florida’s Mr. Football) are putting in work.
  • I’m not a fan of most of RJ Young’s rankings, etc. but I can get behind this one when it comes to Utah. Although if Utah beats Florida in week one then one of the CFP spots becomes a real possibility. Outside of Utah in the Rose Bowl, this thing is a little laughable. 3 of the 4 CFP teams are from the SEC? 5 SEC teams in NY6 bowls?

In Basketball News...

  • Utah honored the legacy of former Ute Wat Misaka last night. Misaka was the first Asian-American player in the NBA after being drafted by the New York Knicks in 1947.
  • You can watch the full ceremony here.
  • The Runnin’ Utes played well but that game went about as expected against a good USC team.

Other Utah Sports News...

  • A record 12 current and former Utah Ski Team members will be in the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics.
  • The swim team cleaned up yesterday.
