Utah Football Confirms Suspicions, Announces Blackout Game
SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – The University of Utah Athletics Twitter account nonchalantly confirmed the date of the yearly blackout game – October 26.
On October 26 at 8:00 p.m., Kyle Whittingham and the Utes will take on the California Bears at Rice Eccles Stadium.
According to the tweet, the theme is officially called “dark mode”. The athletics department encourages fans to wear black and celebrate their Ute pride.
The blackout game is a long-standing tradition at Utah. Last year’s blackout game came against Washington. Utah lost that game 21-7.
Suspicions had been bubbling up on Twitter that this would, in fact, be the blackout game, mainly because usually the blackout game is a late-kick, October game.
This week, the Utes take on Arizona State at Rice Eccles Stadium at 4:00 p.m. You can watch on the Pac-12 Network.
