Utah opened its season with a disappointing three-point loss on the road to the Florida Gators. After that, the Utes went on a four-game winning streak that included a pair of Pac-12 Conference victories. Following a loss on the road to the UCLA Bruins, the Utes bounced back with a 43-42 win over the Trojans in Week 7. A bye week last week will have the Utes well rested for another conference foe in Washington State.
The Cougars opened their 2022 slated on a hot streak, winning their first three contests, including a road win over the Wisconsin Badgers. However, after a home loss to the Oregon Ducks, the Cougars have lost three of their last four games and the last two in a row.
The Utes and Cougars have previously played each other 19 times. Utah owns a 10-9 lead in the series all-time. The Utes won the last meeting between the two schools, 24-13, in 2021.
Utah’s game against Washington State is broadcast on FS1 and 700 AM.
