Arizona game will be a chilly one for Utah fans

Back when Utah and Colorado joined the Pac-12, the league unveiled a new logo with mountains on it as a nod to the inclusion of the two teams. Who else is wishing the league now would recognize this area can get a little chilly in November and night games in Utah might not be such a great idea?

Saturday's game against Arizona could be a rather frigid one for fans since kickoff is set at 8 p.m. with the game to be televised by ESPNU.

Right now the high for Saturday is 52 degrees with a low of 33 degrees and a 20 percent chance of rain.

Bundle up!

Utah athletic director Chris Hill has said in the past late kickoffs are the trade-in for being a part of the Pac-12's TV deal, but I have to think fans are getting tired of these late games, particularly when it is so cold.

The Utes have played eight night games this year and are 3-5 in them.

Utah has to beat the Wildcats to keep the bowl hopes alive.

As of Saturday, some 600 tickets that were returned by Arizona were still available for the game through Utah's ticket office.
