From the Super Bowl to a bevy of college basketball games, there was plenty of action on the docket this weekend.
On Sunday, Feb. 3, the Baltimore Ravens and five NFL players with Utah ties were victorious in Super Bowl XLVII.
Starting Friday and continuing the next day, high schools from around the state of Utah converged on UVU to compete in the state drill team championships.
On Saturday, the Cougars, Utes and Aggies all were victorious on the hardwoods, while the Jazz dropped the second game of back-to-back contests with Portland.
BYU kept itself clearly on the NCAA Tournament bubble with a home win over Santa Clara, while Utah and Utah State picked up some much-needed confidence- building wins over Colorado and Seattle, respectively.
One day after beating the Trail Blazers in EnergySolutions Arena, the Jazz stayed close but couldn't complete the sweep and lost in Portland on Saturday.
