How to watch BYU Basketball vs. Utah: Game time, TV schedule, streaming, radio, game thread and more

The rivalry is back on! Here’s how you can tune in.

NCAA Basketball: California at Utah Jeff Swinger-USA TODAY Sports

After a two year “cooling period” (or whatever you want to call it), the classic basketball rivalry between BYU and the University of Utah is back. The 7-2 Runnin’ Utes will be at the Marriott Center for a late-night match-up with the 8-2 Cougs.

Both BYU and Utah are coming off of wins in last week’s Beehive Classic — BYU over Weber State and Utah over Utah State, meaning both teams have had a full week of preparation.

Utah has lost just two of their last five games (to Butler and UNLV), while BYU finds themselves on a five-game winning streak. ESPN’s FPI gives the Cougars a 66 percent chance to win, but we all know stats are pretty much meaningless in a rivalry game.

How will a deep and fast-moving Utah team match-up with BYU’s half-court sets and gritty defense?
