'Time to smell the roses': Utah drops epic hype video ahead of Rose Bowl Game
Utah plays in the program’s first-ever Rose Bowl Saturday afternoon.
The 11th-ranked Utes got off to a rough start to their season, losing two of their first three games. But from then on, Utah has been on an absolute tear, winning nine of 10 and holding teams to 19.2 points throughout that process.
Some are calling this Rose Bowl appearance the biggest game in program history. Utah was in the Mountain West a little over a decade ago. “We’ve been working a long time to get here,” head coach Kyle Whittingham told reporters on Friday. And they’ll get a chance to make a program statement against a team that has been one of college football’s few consistently elite programs in recent years.
The 6th-ranked Buckeyes had national title aspirations until they were dashed in the snow in Ann Arbor, Michigan, on Nov. 27. Utah will look to try and do the same to the Buckeyes as the Michigan Wolverines that day.
And, ahead of the game, Utah dropped a hype video that’s must-watch:
In life, few things are certain, but we know one thing for sure.
