SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – The Princeton Review released their rankings of the best college athletic facilities in the country and Utah cracked the top 5.

Utah comes in at No. 5 on the list that was unveiled.

Since joining the Pac-12 Conference in 2011, Utah has upgraded most of their athletic facilities and have even built brand new digs for their sports programs.

This ranking is based on student ratings of the recreational and athletic facilities at their schools.

The football team uses the Spence and Cleone Eccles Football Facility that was built in fall of 2013. Men’s and women’s basketball utilizes the Jon M. and Karen Huntsman Basketball Facility which opened it’s doors in fall of 2015.

The Dumke Family Softball Stadium opened in 2013. The McCarthy Family Track & Field was dedicated in October, 2010. The historic venues that the University of Utah has is Rice-Eccles Stadium and the Jon M. Huntsman Center.
