SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – The University of Utah football countdown to the 2021 season is under 100 days until they face the Weber State Wildcats.

Utah football is coming off of a 3-2 COVID-19 shortened season in 2020, which has made the countdown to this season even more exciting. Now, they will turn their attention to a full 12-game regular season in 2021 with Rice-Eccles Stadium being at full capacity.

Each day, KSL Sports will profile players on the roster that wear that day’s specific number. For the 100th day until kickoff, we looked at Utah’s rushing offense and defense.

Here is the countdown, which will be updated daily, so make sure you check back here each day leading up to Thursday, September 2.
