Utah fans have two more chances to catch the Utes in action this spring, with a practice scheduled today at the practice fields from 3-to-4:45 p.m. and the Red-White game on Saturday at Rice-Eccles Stadium. You can check out an interview with Utah coach Kyle Whittingham here on the Pac-12 Network, which is filming all the league's spring games. Usually teams covet tape of opponents, but Whittingham said there isn't much value to the spring tapes for scouting purposes since the session is considered more of a teaching session for up and coming players rather than one based on strategy. "It's still good to have them on hand and it's something to take a look at," he said. "But we won't break them down or anything like that." - Lya Wodraska
