The University of Utah is back in the Pac-12 championship game.
Utah is the reigning Pac-12 champion and will be appearing in the title game for the fourth time in the past five seasons.
Cam Rising and the Utes (9-3, 7-2 Pac-12) beat Heisman hopeful Caleb Williams and the Trojans (11-1, 8-1) earlier this season in Salt Lake City in the first meeting between the two teams.
Here’s the definitive guide to the game for Utah fans.
When is the game?
Friday at 6 p.m. Mountain Time.
Where is the game?
At Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas.
Where do I get tickets?
An athletic department spokesperson said the Pac-12 allocates 3,900 tickets specifically for Utah fans.
How much is a flight to Vegas from Salt Lake City?
Flights arriving to Vegas on Thursday and leaving Saturday start around $230 roundtrip and increase from there depending on the airline.
What if I want to drive?
The drive from SLC to Vegas is generally about six hours. For those trying to avoid Friday traffic heading into Vegas, a drive Thursday might make the most sense.
There’s a slight chance of rain and snow Thursday between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m., and a slight chance of rain after that, per the National Weather Service. It will be partly sunny in St. George during the day and mostly cloudy at night. In Las Vegas, the forecast is partly sunny during the day and mostly cloudy at night.
All that seems to suggest a mostly pleasant driving experience to Vegas.
For the drive back to Utah, there is a chance of showers in Vegas all of Saturday, with a chance of rain and snow all of Saturday in SLC.
Where can I watch the game on TV?
The game will be televised on FOX. Pre- and postgame coverage can be seen on the Pac-12 Network.
