Washington will host Utah for a day game next Saturday.

The conference announced a kick time for the Huskies’ Week 11 matchup with Utah late Saturday night. Kickoff will take place at 12:30 p.m. PT on FOX.

For UW, a string of three consecutive evening games is broken. The Huskies have played at 4 p.m. PT or later in five of their six conference games to this point in the season. Utah, however, has been trapped in the morning/afternoon slot, so to speak. Utah has played in the early Pac-12 window six times in nine games this season.

The conference initially held Oregon-USC and Washington-Utah for six-day selections. With the Huskies beating the Trojans 52-42 at the Coliseum Saturday night, UW landed the more favorable window while Oregon-USC was dropped to the 7:30 p.m. PT slot on FOX.

Washington will put its unblemished record on the line for a chance to further cement itself as one of the two participants in this year’s Pac-12 title game. Handing Utah a third conference loss would knock the Utes out of title contention.

But doing so will be no small feat. Washington struggled with Arizona State, managing a 15-7 win in a game where the offense didn’t score a touchdown. Utah just blasted the Sun Devils 55-3 at home while limiting ASU to less than 100 yards of total offense.

Arizona State was dealing with significant injury issues all throughout the two-deep — particularly on the offensive line and at quarterback — but Utah has shown an ability to really shut down opponents this season when things are clicking. The Utes were handled by Oregon in a home loss on Oct. 28, but they’ve cleared 30 points in each of their other three games since an early-October bye week.
