Pacific 12 northwest weather hit old mountain west country. Utah has assimilated nicely into the new conference and today’s rainy weather had Ute fans hoping it would thwart Arizona’s desert comfort zone. The Wildcats reportedly conducted practices under the sprinklers to better prepare.
Set in the Wasatch Mountains of Salt Lake City, over 600 miles from the Pacific Ocean, the University of Utah has made a comfortable home in the Pacific 12 Conference. Although some aspects of this area geographically feel out of place with the conference, the fan base and history of this team make it a perfect fit.
