  • The Utah Utes football program is a college football team that currently competes in the Pacific-12 Conference of the Football Bowl Subdivision of NCAA Division I and represents the University of Utah. The Utah college football program began in 1892 and has played home games at Rice–Eccles Stadium since 1927. They have won twenty-four conference championships in five conferences during their history, and they have a cumulative record of 628 wins, 435 losses, and 31 ties. The Utes have a record of 13–4 in bowl games, which is the highest winning percentage in the nation among teams that have had ten or more bowl appearances. Among Utah's bowl appearances are two games from the Bowl Championship Series: the Fiesta Bowl and the Sugar Bowl. In the 2005 Fiesta Bowl, Utah defeated the Pittsburgh Panthers 35–7, and in the 2009 Sugar Bowl, they defeated the Alabama Crimson Tide 31–17. During those seasons, Utah was a member of the Mountain West Conference, whose champion does not receive an automatic invitation to a BCS bowl.
