Key Games

2/15 vs Air Force

Utah’s second-ever win came against the Falcons last season. They beat the Falcons 6-5 with Josh Stout scoring the game-winner midway through the fourth. As two of the western most teams in the country, these two are instant “regional rivals” that has the potential to grow into something. 

3/7 @ Mount St. Mary’s 

The Mountaineers are one of eight teams that remain on Utah’s schedule from last season. Utah will be looking for revenge after narrowly losing to the Mountaineers, 16-15, last season. 

3/21 vs Hampton

As two of the newer programs in college lacrosse, Utah and Hampton have much in common, The Pirates are entering a new era with Rashad Devoe as their new head coach and are set to play more DI opponent than ever, including Utah. Both of these programs are looking to build from the foundation that has been laid at each place.

5/2 vs Duke

Last season, Utah gave Duke a pretty big scare after things were tied at 7 apiece heading into the half. Duke eventually won 17-11. Utah looks to put up a good fight against the Blue Devils in 2020.
