Today is the day University of Utah fans have been waiting for. It's the season opener for the football season. That's right, the Utes are in the all new PAC-12. Tonight they play Montana State at Rice-Eccles Stadium at 6:00 p.m. The game will be televised on KJZZ TV-channel 14 and Comcast channel 3 here in Salt Lake City.
But the festivities start earlier than that. The Ute Walk begins at 3:30 pm (2-and-a-half hours prior to each game). The team gets dropped off at the corner of 500 South and Guardsman Way. Line the route down 500 South to Rice-Eccles Stadium to show the team your support. The Marching Band will lead the team and the Spirit Team will have T-shirts to throw to the crowd.
So whether you'll be seating in the stadium or watching the game at home on tv, today's a great day to pull out your Crimson and wear it proudly. Fly your U flag. It's officially Utah football season! Go Utes!
