Games to Circle

2/6 @ Bellarmine: After playing the Knights in Utah the past two seasons, Utah will travel to Louisville for the first time in 2021. In 2019, Utah took down the Knights in a very close, 10-9, contests. Last season, Utah pulled away early and despite a comeback effort from the Knights in the second half, Utah took home the, 16-10, victory.

2/20 @ Air Force: The Utes and Falcons have faced each other in each of Utah’s first two seasons as a DI program, and they have been some pretty good contests. In 2019, Utah earned their second-ever win against Air Force, besting the Falcons, 6-5, on the road. Last season, Air Force came back from down 5-1 at the end of the first to beat Utah, 9-8.

3/6 vs Jacksonville: In one of just three home games, Utah will welcome Jacksonville to Salt Lake City. The two faced off last season in Jacksonville in the Moe’s Classic. While it was a game of runs from the get go, Utah was able to hang their hat on some big runs throughout the game that helped them secure the 15-11 victory in their first-ever meeting against the Dolphins.
