Utah's Best Sports Moments of 2020

SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – The year 2020 has been… so many things. For many, it has been one of the hardest years of our lifetime, but this wild year has reminded many of us of the importance of community.

Sports are an integral part of many communities – so here at KSL Sports, we wanted to look back on some of the best moments sports brought us in 2020.

… And of course, we had to make it (a little) competitive.

To relive, watch or get more information about the moments, check below the bracket for full stories.
