Red roundup: Utah's budget grows, but still low for Pac-12
Utah's athletic budget was $27.8 million for the fiscal year 2010. It'll rise to $29.7 million in 2011 and $35 million in 2012.
Even with that growth, though, Utah is still well behind the curve in the Pac-12. The Utes will be closing the gap on Washington State, but remain well behind Oregon, California, Washington, UCLA and the others.
