“We’re excited to renew that series with Montana and excited to get started at home,” said Utah Head Coach Craig Morris.”
Utah then travels to California to take on UC Santa Barbara on Feb. 17 and then two days later, the Utes travel to UCLA to play in the inaugural Pac-12 Showdown where they will face Arizona State and UCLA on the 19th and 20th. Arizona State finished first in the SLC in 2010 with a 16-4 record overall and made it to the MCLA National Tournament Championship Game but lost to Michigan, 12-11.
Minnesota-Duluth comes to town on March 6. The Bulldogs were 14-4 overall and 7-0 in the UMLL. Minnesota-Duluth made it to the second round of the National Tournament, falling to Chapman. In 2007, Minnesota-Duluth came to town and pulled off a 1 goal win over the Utes.
San Diego, who finished 2010 with a record of 9-9, comes to face the Utes on March 17. Utah will then take on Chapman on March 25. Chapman finished 16-3 and in 2010, received an at-large bid to the National Tournament and lost to Michigan in the Semifinals.
Utah will then play two in-state Division II rivals in scrimmages. Utah will face UVU on April 6 and Westminster on April 12. Both teams played Utah last year with Utah beating the Griffins, 15-8, and UVU, 13-12.
“We are excited to play our local rivals,” said Morris. “It’s always exciting and an important measuring stick for us.”
