SALT LAKE CITY--
> Utah (4-7, 2-6 Pac-12) concludes its 2012 season at Colorado (1-10, 1-7 Pac-12) on Friday, Nov. 23 in Boulder, Colo. Kickoff is 1:00 p.m. MST at Folsom Field. The game will be televised on FX. In Utah, FX can be found on these channels: Comcast 43, Dish 136, DirecTV 248. Radio is ESPN700 AM (espn700sports.com) and SIRIUS/XM (123/190).
> In this game a year ago, Colorado cost Utah a berth in the first Pac-12 Championship game by upsetting the Utes 17-14 in Salt Lake City.
> For the first time in a decade, the Utes will not be bowl eligible. Utah is 8-1 in bowl games since 2003, including the first seven years of Kyle Whittingham's tenure as head coach.
> The Utes are 0-5 on the road this season. Utah's last road win was at Washington State on Nov. 19, 2011.
> Utah's 58 games against Colorado is its most against a Pac-12 school and the fifth-most against any opponent. Colorado leads the series 31-24-3 overall and 15-10-1 in Boulder. Played annually from 1903-1962 with four exceptions, the rivalry went dormant for 49 years before it resumed last season. See page 2 for complete series history.
> John White will attempt to become the first player in Utah history to rush for 1,000 yards in back-to-back seasons. White needs 127 yards this week against Colorado to reach 1,000 yards. He rushed for a school-record 1,519 yards last year.
> The Utes played before sellout crowds in every home game this season--the third-straight season they have done so--and extended their sellout streak to 18 games in Rice-Eccles Stadium. See `Selling Out' for more.
