SALT LAKE CITY- The Utes had about a 15% chance of making the Pac-12 Championship Game after an ugly, close loss to Oregon just a week ago. It turns out a 15% chance was really all they needed. Utah is going back to the Pac-12 Championship Game on December 2 to take on USC- a team they have already beaten once this season.

Utah Takes The Scenic Route There

With Utah’s loss to the Ducks the week before they needed a few things to fall their way.

One, UCLA needed to beat Cal. Done.

Two, Oregon State needed to take out Oregon. It was close, but the Beavers prevailed.

Three, Utah needed to win their game against Colorado. With ease.

Four, Washington needed to beat Washington State for the Apple Cup. It was a little touch and go, but the Huskies took care of it.

The fourth piece of the path to the Pac-12 Championship Game for Utah didn’t resolve itself until close to midnight local time leaving social media buzzing all day Saturday as to what would happen with ultimate euphoria for Utah erupting early Sunday morning.

The Utes Are Heading To Vegas Again

Naturally, it’s fun to take a look at how Utah (and other Pac-12) social media is handling the excitement of heading to Las Vegas later this week to take on USC at Allegiant Stadium on Friday. Once again, against all odds, the Utes pulled through and could once more hoist the Pac-12 Championship Trophy, but let’s not get too ahead of ourselves right now and just enjoy the journey there.
