SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – The University of Utah Runnin’ Utes announced on Wednesday afternoon that they will host Sacramento State during the opening week.

The college basketball season will begin in early November and the Runnin’ Utes will face Sacramento State on Saturday, November 13. It will mark the third meeting all-time between the Utes and Hornets with the first two meetings taking place in Salt Lake City.

The first matchup happened back on December 12, 1992 with Utah picking up a 74-45 win. In the second matchup, the Hornets beat the Utes 74-71 on November 16, 2012.

Sacramento State is coached by Brian Katz, who finished his 14th season as the head coach. He was at the helm when Sacramento State beat Utah in 2012. During the COVID-19 shortened season, the Hornets went 8-12 overall and 5-9 in Big Sky play. Unfortunately, they had 10 games canceled due to the pandemic.

Craig Smith is 2-0 against Sacramento State with both wins coming when he was the head coach of South Dakota.
