Utah's annual FanFest is today at Rice-Eccles Stadium from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Ute coach Kyle Whittingham and his squad look forward to the interactive fan event each year.

The football team is expected to join the festivities around noon after a morning practice and lunch.

"We love our fans. The fans have been great to us. They support us. That's obvious with the season-ticket sales," Whittingham said.

"We're in the entertainment business. Without an audience to play for, that would be a real dreary situation. So we're excited to get out with our fans, get up close and personal with them. I think that it's good for the players and good for the fans."

Admission and parking are free.
