Peavler: Summer breakdown of the Utes' 2014 football schedule
With Pac-12 Football Media Day just around the corner, it's time to take a summer look at the University of Utah's 2014 schedule.
And it's a doozy.
The Pac-12 South looks as daunting as ever with teams such as UCLA and USC on the rise. Meanwhile, Utah has to play Pac-12 North powerhouses Oregon and Stanford in back-to-back weeks. Add a trip to the Big House against Michigan, and Utah will play one of the most difficult schedules in the country. In fact, master prognosticator Phil Steele has the Utes at No. 8 in toughest schedules in his 2014 College Football Preview.
Here's a summer breakdown of Utah's 2014 schedule.
