SALT LAKE CITY- The Runnin’ Utes are back home the next few weeks starting with Saturday’s matchup against the Colorado Buffaloes.

Utah had another poor road outing last weekend against the Washington schools that they were looking to put behind them against the Buffs.

The Utes looked at ease back home in the Huntsman Center but walked into the half tied with the Buffaloes at 31.

The Utes stuck with it in the second half and eventually walked away with a 73-68 victory over Colorado to maintain their undefeated streak at home.

Look Ahead At Utah’s Schedule

The Utes will continue their homestand next week hosting the Arizona schools at the Huntsman Center.

Utah starts things off on Thursday, February 8 against the No. 11 Wildcats. Tipoff is set for 6:00 pm MT and can be viewed on Pac-12 Networks.

The Utes will then wrap things up against the ASU Sun Devils on Saturday, February 10. Tipoff for that game is also set for 6:00 pm MT and will air on ESPN2.
