If you listen closely this evening, you might actually be able to hear TV remotes clicking across the state of Utah.
College football fans will have three games involving four local teams to switch among:

• Southern Utah at Utah State (6 p.m., KMYU/Ch. 2.2)
• Washington State at BYU (8:15 p.m., ESPN)
