BYU Basketball snapped out of a three game losing skid with a big win over Utah State Wednesday. The Runnin’ Utes are up next Saturday afternoon for the Cougars in the third of three in-state games in a row. The Cougs are 1-1 so far in those games.
Utah has had a pretty up and down season, quite literally. They’ve won a game, then lost a game, won a game, then lost a game for every one of their seven games so far. For what it’s worth, an L is what should be up next in the pattern they’ve established. But weird stuff happens in rivalry games, so don’t count on anything.
The Runnin’ Utes are 4-3 on the season while BYU is 6-4. The rivalry game will be played on “neutral” ground in Salt Lake City — at Vivint Smart Home Arena as part of the Beehive Classic. BYU and Utah will play in the first game of the Classic, with Utah State and Weber State following them. One ticket will get you entry to both games, you can get more info here.
