SALT LAKE CITY – An undeniable atmosphere is growing around the University of Utah football program as back-to-back Pac-12 championships and appearances at the New Year’s Six Bowl carry the Utes into the 2023 season, beginning with the opening of season ticket renewal windows today.
Each year, Rice-Eccles Stadium is known for having one of the toughest environments in the Pac-12 and the nation — and with 76 straight sellouts going into the 2023 season, the Utes are looking for 77 and more, thanks to Utah fans.
With seven home games in 2023, including the season opener against the Florida Gators, fans can begin renewing their season tickets today through the Utah Ticket Office, with updated pricing and information available here.
Season ticket-buying fans are set for another electric year, with top players opting for another season and one of the best recruiting classes in program history launching this spring and fall. The Utes are also looking to keep their streak alive at Rice-Eccles Stadium after winning 6-0 in 2021 and 2022, with Utah winning 25 of their last 26 home games.
In 2022, Utah outscored their opponents 280-99 while playing at Rice-Eccles Stadium with a total of 39 touchdowns scored. Utah dominated their opponents with 160 first downs in home games compared to their 86, and held opponents in Salt Lake City to just 680 rushing yards and 1,795 total yards on offense.
With 18 regulars (seven on offense, 11 on defense), Utah fans can expect another season of quality offense and a tough defense that has been a tradition for Utah football since the head coach Kyle Whittingham took over the helm.
Whittingham enters his 19th seasonth season as head coach of the Utes and his 30thth overall with the program, having served as an assistant coach from 1994 to 2004. He has coached in 354 games in Utah and 228 as a head coach, becoming Utah’s all-time winning leader in 2021, currently holding an overall record of 154-74.
Whittingham and the Utah coaching staff guided the Utes to top marks in the Pac-12 for third down and first downs defense, first downs offense, team sacks, tackles for loss, and time of possession. The Utes also finished in 11th placeth nationally in scoring offense in 2022.
Before the Gators come to town this fall, the Utes will officially kick off 2023 with spring camp beginning Tuesday, March 21, with Utah’s annual spring game being held on April 22 at the Aaron and Ty Memorial Fund donated, tickets for the game will go on sale at a later date.
