Tucson, Ariz. • Utah's eighth-ranked gymnastics team looks for its first road win of the season tonight as it takes on No. 13 Arizona.

The Utes have never lost to the Wildcats, owning a 51-0 mark in a series that started in 1976.

Sophomore Kassandra Lopez, a Tucson native, will compete only on the uneven bars due to a strained lower leg muscle.

Sophomore Becky Tutka, who earned a 9.85 on the floor at UCLA, will be the anchor on that event tonight. She originally was scheduled to compete fourth.

The Utes are coming off a 196.95 effort a week ago in a quad-meet while Arizona's season high is a 195.85.
