SALT LAKE CITY – Utah Football took to social media to show off the uniforms they will wear against the California Golden Bears this Saturday.
The game against Cal will be Utah’s annual celebration of the relationship between the university and the Ute Tribe.
Utah will roll out their black helmets with the “Ute Proud” Block U and center stripe that will be paired with their black jerseys and red pants per an update from Utah football.

We’ve got to be honest; the combo is giving us “ring of fire” solar eclipse vibes which is perfect since the rare solar occurrence will be taking place Saturday before the game.

Utah Football Keeps Perspective As Injuries Pile Up
Utah football has been put through the ringer with injuries in 2023, but it pales in comparison to prior adversities they have faced.
On September 29 after a game where very little went right for the Utes- particularly on offense, head coach Kyle Whittingham said the most important thing moving into the BYE week was that the team stayed together.

On October 9, wide receiver Devaughn Vele gave the ultimate mic-drop answer as to why Utah football is still committed to each other and still determined to work together through their deficiencies.
“That’s a great thing you bring up,” Vele said after Monday’s practice. “I feel like if we didn’t have the whole situation with Aaron Lowe and Ty Jordan- the adversity that we faced like that, that we wouldn’t handle this as well as we are right now. I don’t feel like guys are necessarily turning against each other. It’s more so that we expect better play out of everybody and that is what we expect as a team. Everybody is pushing everybody. Especially on the offensive side.”
Vele continued that the players are doing everything in their power to make things right and continue toward their goals for 2023 while also remembering to continue being 22% better and love each other through the trying times.
