DENVER -- The No. 3-seeded University of Utah Utes are facing No. 11-seeded Gonzaga in the NCAA Tournament Saturday night, but despite that ranking the Utes are the underdogs according to the folks in Las Vegas, who slightly favor the Bulldogs.

FOX 13 Sports' Jeff Rhineer is in Denver with the Utes, and he spoke to several players about their thoughts on the second-round contest against Gonzaga.

"Definitely it's gonna be a fun match-up, it's gonna be a dog fight," Senior Guard Brandon Taylor said. "It's gonna be a dog fight, and it's gonna come down to who wants to work the hardest, and it's gonna be a good one."

See the video above for Rhineer's pre-game report. Utah plays Gonzaga at 6:40 p.m. The winner of that game will advance to the Sweet Sixteen.

    Sorry Utah, but a “dog fight” means BOTH teams are fighting. Right now you runnin Utes are embarrassing us by being down 20 points to a number 11 rank team. Runnin Utes are a joke at times and tonights game is one of those times.
