FOOTBALL NEWS IN JUNE! I don't know about you, but I'm salivating for any news when it comes to football. Fortunately, today we got tossed a bone with some kick off time announcements, so now we can fantasize about tailgating before a game this fall, and when we can start tailgating. Five game times have been announced for games this fall, including the first four of the season.
Utah will kick off the season on Thursday, September 1 at 6 pm against SUU on the Pac-12 Network. Utah will then host the rivalry game 10 games later at 5:30 pm on FOX. I don't know if a rivalry has ever been broadcast on FOX, so that'll be a little interesting, plus it's an afternoon game. In week three, the Utes will travel to San Jose for a 8:30 pm kick off. Hopefully we won't have many of these 8:30 or later kick offs. A big one the next week is on the books as Utah takes on USC at 7 pm at Rice-Eccles. Later in the season, Utah will play ASU in Tempe at 7:30 pm on a Thursday.
The rest of the games will be picked about a week in advance, as has been the norm.
Here's the full release from the U.
