IMO, It certainly = strange that UTState wouldn’t schedule Weber State, of Damian Lillard Fame, which is only 1 County away from UTState in say- 2026,
UTState has a 99.9% chance to Win.
More important, Weber State Fans would fill Maverik Stadium to see the Rematch & UTState Fans would fill it to see their Team retake bragging Rights.
Logan[UTState] & Ogden[WeberState] are the largest Cities, closest to each Other.
