SALT LAKE CITY – Utah Football’s home opener against the Florida Gators finally has an official date.

The game will be played on Thursday, August 31 at Rice Eccles Stadium in Salt Lake City.

In the announcement Tweet, the team also noted that fans should wear red to the game. The game has been a question mark on Utah’s 2023 schedule, it was either to be played on Aug. 31 or Sept. 2.

There is still no official confirmation of game time.

A Deeper Dive Into The Utes’ 2023 Pac-12 Schedule

Utah will open up Pac-12 play on September 23 hosting UCLA at Rice-Eccles Stadium and will wrap things up with Colorado at home on November 25. The Utes will enjoy a week six BYE on October 7 to rest up after going to Oregon State and before hosting Cal.

Utah does not have the easiest schedule in 2023 having to play every ranked Pac-12 opponent from 2022 (UCLA, USC, Oregon State, Oregon, Washington) that will presumably pick back up where they left off. They also will have to play three of them on the road (Oregon State, USC, Washington) plus Baylor who will also most likely be ranked in the preseason.

The one area of good news for the Utes is it does appear the tougher opponents have been spread throughout their season instead of having to have back-to-back gauntlets every couple of weeks. Still, anyone that has watched Pac-12 football over the years knows even the “easy” teams can take down the “best” teams any given Saturday. If Utah wishes to three-peat it will require their very best effort in 2023.
