SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – The Pac-12 Conference announced the kickoff time and broadcast information for Utah’s game against Arizona State.

Utah will host ASU at Rice-Eccles Stadium on Saturday, October 16. The game will be televised on ESPN and will begin at 8 p.m. MT.

This will be the second time that the Utes will play on ESPN, with the first one taking place on Saturday, September 11 in their loss to BYU in Provo.

Since 2020, Utah will have appeared on ESPN four times. They played on the Worldwide Leader twice in 2020, including their loss to USC and win over Oregon State.

Utah and Arizona State did not play during the 2020 season with their game getting canceled due to COVID-19 cases within the Sun Devils program. The Utes quickly picked up a road game against Washington that week.

Herm Edwards’ team is ranked No. 22 in the country in the AP Top 25 poll. They are 4-1 overall and 2-0 in Pac-12 play, coming off of a 42-23 win over UCLA at the Rose Bowl. ASU also has wins over Southern Utah, UNLV and Colorado, with their lone loss coming against BYU.

The Sun Devils will host Stanford on Friday, October 8 at 7:30 p.m. MT on ESPN. Utah will head to Los Angeles to face the USC Trojans on Saturday, October 9 at 6 p.m. MT on FOX.
