Utah’s 2023 football schedule has been released, and it’s a doozy.

The Utes will face Florida and Baylor in a loaded nonconference slate. The game against Florida has still not been officially set, per the Pac-12 Network, but it will either be played on Thursday or Saturday. Utah loves to open seasons on a Thursday, but Florida hasn’t played a Thursday game in decades.

The Utes open conference play at home against UCLA and then hit the road to face Oregon State on a Friday on Sept. 29. The Utes go on a bye the following week.

Big games land at the end of October, as Utah will head to USC on Oct. 14 to face a Trojan team it beat twice in 2022. Then, a week later, it’ll return home to host Oregon.

Utah’s final home game of the year comes in the final regular-season game of the year when they host Deion Sanders and Colorado.

Per the Pac-12 Network, Utah is hopeful to have quarterback Cameron Rising ready to go for the season opener.
