#28 Utah Utes: College Football 77 in 77

In their first year in the Pac-12, the Utah Utes came within a field goal of forcing overtime with the league championship game on the line. Of course, it also says something about the weird circumstances surrounding the game that a .500 team, UCLA ended up getting a berth in the Pac-12 championship.

Alas, the Utes benefited from USC being ineligible in the South Division, and finished with just a 4-5 conference record. Prospects look a little higher in 2012

#110 Utah Utes: College Basketball 111 in 111

Welcome to The Sports Bank’s third annual college basketball season preview series.  Two years we looked at 99 teams in 99 days.  Last year, we were slightly more aggressive and expanded to 111 teams in 111 days and will do so again as we look ahead to the 2012-2013 season.

We will rank the 75 power conference teams and top 36 mid-majors in reverse power ranking order.  We’ll break down rosters, transfers, incoming freshmen, non-conference schedules, and pick a player to watch for each team.

The Utah Utes came in dead last in our rankings a year ago but move up one whole spot this time around.  In their inaugural season in the Pac-12, the Utes won just six total games and the outlook is not any better heading into this season.  Second year head coach Larry Krystowiak lost six players to transfer and has 11 players who didn’t see a single minute in a Utah uniform last year.
