Posted Aug 4th - 12:19am by Mike Grant

SALT LAKE CITY — For the first time in the last decade, The Utah Utes did not qualify for a bowl game and the 2013 Utes are aiming to change that.

"We need to win now, there isn't time to rebuild, we need to win now." Utah defensive end Trevor Reilly said at PAC-12 media day.

In order to turn the tide the Utes needed a change on offense. Long time head coach Dennis Erickson was brought on the staff to instill some big play potential and confidence on that side of the ball.

SALT LAKE CITY — A third district judge issued a warrant for the arrest of an ex-University of Utah football player after he failed to show up for a sentencing hearing Monday.

Whittingham speaks to KSL about new facility

Posted Jul 29th - 2:47pm by Mike Grant, Robert Jackson, and Jeremiah Jensen

SALT LAKE CITY — During an interview at PAC12 media day at Sony Studios in Los Angeles, Jeremiah Jensen asked head coach Kyle Whittingham about the new football facility.

"It's something that we can't wait to recruit to," Whittingham said. "It is one thing to talk to recruits and show them the plans and show them the video of what it is going to look like, show them the building in progress, but to actually walk them through it and say, here is your facility. That's a whole different deal."

If there is one thing for the football program that needed to be updated, it was the facility. The academic center, stadium, and indoor facilities are right there with everyone else, but this football facility puts the program in a great position for recruiting.

5 breakout stars for the 2013 Utes

Posted Jul 24th - 6:27pm by Mike Grant and Robert Jackson

SALT LAKE CITY — While the Utes have struggled offensively in their first two years in the Pac-12, with just a few tweaks from new co-offensive coordinator Dennis Erickson, Ute fans were able to witness what actually resembled a college football offense during the Red and White Spring Game.

Simple, short passes to the running backs out of the backfield and perfecting the zone read option drastically improved Utah's offensive output.

How much of that success can we expect to translate over into the regular season? That remains to be seen, but fans should be comforted in knowing that the offense is heading in the right direction.

SALT LAKE CITY — The Utah football season is just under seven weeks away. Utah wide receiver Kenneth Scott was nice enough to come in to the KSL studios and spend a few hours with us to talk about the upcoming season.

"I'm thankful I can donate and help out the University of Utah football team and give back to the school. They gave me the opportunity to play, and as a kid from Samoa, it's something I'm thankful for every day. Without the University giving me a scholarship to play the sport I love, I wouldn't be where I am today."

Soliai played in 24 games for Utah from 2005-06, after redshirting in 2004, and was named second-team all-Mountain West Conference as a senior. He was then selected in the fourth round of the 2007 NFL Draft by Miami, where he is preparing for his seventh season.
