The Pac-12 Conference got off to a reasonably good start last week, with an 8-3 record in college football's opening weekend. Week 2 is upon us, and the Friday night television schedule has one game, featuring a pair of in-state rivals facing off on national TV.
Utah at Utah State -- 5 p.m. PDT, ESPN2
The Utah Utes got their season off to a good start with a 41-0 win over Northern Colorado last weekend, not hit the road to face the Utah State Aggies in Logan, Utah. It is the first of two straight games for the Utes on ESPN2, as they will host BYU next weekend. Utah was one of five Pac-12 South teams to win last week, with only Colorado suffering a defeat.
The Utes, ranked No. 31 in the latest Associated Press poll, leads their all-time series against Utah State, 77-28-4. The Utes won their last meeting 35-17 in 2009.
