    OGDEN, Utah — Weber State sophomore Jerrick Harding is 20th in the country when it comes to scoring. Not bad for a highly under-recruited basketball player from Wichita, Kansas. Morgan Vance has that story in the video above.

  • Utah Gymnastics crushes BYU in debut

    SALT LAKE CITY — In the preseason, the Red Rocks clearly stated their intention to establish themselves as national title contenders right out of the gates, and that happened Friday at the Huntsman Center with a lopsided victory over rival BYU. More than 14,000 people were on hand to watch Utah gymnastics explode for a 197.000-194.275 win over the Cougars. “We were really pleased with three of our four events,” said Utah co-coach Tom Farden. “We survived an off night […]

    SALT LAKE CITY — The Heart of Dallas Bowl will take most of the Utah football players away from home for the holidays, but it’s a return home from Salesi Uhatafe, whose college career at Utah started with a tragedy. Uhatafe survived a car crash that killed two of his brothers and fellow incoming freshman, Gaius Vaenuku. “I hate to even talk about it, it was so devastating,” said Utah head coach Kyle Whittingham. “He has overcome a lot of […]

  • Utah’s Pac-12 woes continue

    A month ago, Utah was 4-0 and fresh off a bye week. But a home loss to Stanford would then spark a miserable stretch through the Pac-12 that has now resulted in four straight losses, the latest of which came Saturday in Eugene. Oregon held the Utes to just three yards on the ground, and out of the end zone in the first half, and outshined Utah offensively to secure a 41-20 home win. Darren Carrington was effective in his […]

  • BYU ends skid with 41-20 win over San Jose State

    PROVO, Utah — It was August the last time that BYU football could claim victory, but after a grueling stretch through September and October that saw the Cougars drop seven consecutive games, they are finally back in the win column. And what better medicine than a San Jose State squad that came into Saturday’s game in Provo with an identical 1-7 record? Tanner Mangum got the Cougars off to a quick start, with BYU jumping out to a lead for […]

  • Real Salt Lake signs head coach Mike Petke to long-term contract extension

    SANDY, Utah — Despite failing to make the playoffs this season, to RSL club ownership, it’s what have you done for me lately. And lately, the Claret and Cobalt have been one of the best teams in Major League Soccer. Since July 4th, they have gone 8-3-4, giving RSL owner Dell Loy Hansen more than enough incentive to sign Petke to a 3-year extension Thursday. Just a few games into the season, Hansen let go of former RSL head coach […]

  • BYU falls to ECU 33-17 in seventh straight loss of season

    The disaster continues. Back in August, no Cougar fan could have possibly fathomed what nightmare Kalani Sitake’s second season in Provo has turned into. A season that started slow for BYU, and has only gotten slower and more disheartening with time. A season that continues to set records in the wrong direction. After getting pounded by nationally ranked programs such as LSU, Wisconsin and rival Utah to begin the campaign, BYU was finally supposed to have faced their equal on […]

  • BYU’s skid their worst since 1968

    Following last week’s loss to Boise State, BYU matched the program’s first five game losing streak since 1970. Turns out, they’ve met another mark in the wrong direction. After getting crushed at Mississippi State on Saturday, the Cougars have now dropped six consecutive games for the first time since 1968. First, the positive for the Cougars: they won the turnover battle, including a couple of interceptions by Dayan Ghanwoloku. But the negative continues to be hummed by the same old […]

  • Utah’s last second 2-point attempt hands USC the win

    Last season in week two, BYU head coach Kalani Sitake decided to go for two instead of take the game into overtime at Rice-Eccles Stadium against rival Utah. The conversion was stopped by Utah’s defense, allowing the Utes to survive with a nail-biting victory. But fast forward over a year later, and the same gamble backfired against the Utes as they were looking for a key conference win against 13th-ranked USC. A Troy Williams keeper fell short of the goal […]

  • Utah falls to Stanford in first loss of season

    SALT LAKE CITY — 20th-ranked Utah entered the first five weeks of the season exactly where they wanted: undefeated (4-0), and with a chance to remain that way heading into next week’s anticipated showdown against fellow Pac-12 South power USC. But then again, the Utes were quickly reminded why Stanford was favored by three and a half points Saturday night at Rice-Eccles Stadium. The Cardinal (4-2) and their Heisman-seeking tail back, Bryce Love, held off the Utes 23-20. Love piled […]

  • Rudy Gobert visits students in North Salt Lake

    NORTH SALT LAKE, Utah — The Utah Jazz have media day on Monday of next week, but Rudy Gobert was out and about in the community Wednesday afternoon. Gobert paid a visit to Foxboro Elementary in North Salt Lake to see their language immersion program for himself. Gobert is from France and communicated with the K-6 students in French. He also answered some hard-hitting questions in English as well. Morgan Vance was there and spoke with the new face of […]
