Pac-12 releases its gymnastics schedule; Utah will play host to Arizona Saturday

NCAA regional is also set for the Huntsman Center in April

(Rick Egan | The Salt Lake Tribune) Alini Sabado competes on the uneven bars for Utah in the Best of Utah gymnastics meet at the Maverik Center on Saturday, Jan. 9, 2021.

The Pac-12 finally announced its 2021 gymnastics schedule on Tuesday and fans will be happy to know there is planned TV coverage through at least Feb. 28.

Utah’s conference competition begins Saturday against Arizona at 1 p.m. in the Huntsman Center. The Pac-12 Networks will televise the meet. Utah will host Washington on Jan. 30 then travel to Arizona State on Feb. 6 for its first conference road meet.

Per its spectator policy, the Pac-12 isn’t allowing fans for home gymnastics meets in the Huntsman Center.

Utah coach Tom Farden acknowledged having the meets televised is appreciated, particularly this year.

“The extensive coverage by ESPN and the Pac-12 Networks for every meet through the end of February is something we do not take for granted,” he said.
