It’s early on the Saturday of the Thanksgiving Holiday weekend. I’m sitting in my brother’s basement, sipping coffee and writing this story.
The story of the game that, in my opinion, turned around the season for our beloved University of Utah Runnin’ Utes.
I travel San Francisco to meet up with my Brother and the rest of our tailgating crew. Utah is playing Stanford, and it’s a critical game for both us if we want to have a winning season.
We start out by having a lovely dinner on the Oakland pier, followed by an even more amazing breakfast at the oceanside Cliff House.
Over crab stuffed eggs benedict and spicy bloody mary’s, we plan out the rest of our day before heading to the game that evening.
The game is our turning point, as we win in decided fashion over Stanford. This win leads to an amazing win streak and eventually the PAC-12 South championship!
Tonight we are headed to the final game of the season against our in State rival BYU. It will be freezing cold with snow likely, but I don’t care. I love the game, my tailgating crew, and our beloved University of Utah.
Next week is the PAC 12 championship, back in San Francisco. I wish I could be there, but it will have to only be in spirit this time.
Here we go Utah, HERE WE GO!
