Utah Jazz

The Jazz had one of their best shooting nights of the season against the Hawks on Tuesday night. 

Utah shot 39.5% (15-for-38) from beyond the arc, their second-best percentage on the year. Six different players knocked down a three-pointer, with four of them knocking down at least two.

“It gives you life,” Donovan Mitchell (27 points, 5-for-11 from deep) said postgame about the team finally knocking down some shots.

We made a shot.”

Those were head coach Quin Snyder’s parting words following Utah’s 110-98 victory over visiting Atlanta on Tuesday night.

Perennially one of the top three-point shooting teams in the league, the Jazz had gotten off to a shockingly slow start this year. Utah was sitting at 26th in the league, shooting the deep ball at 31.8% — nearly seven percentage points lower than last season.

Utah football

The University of Utah Football team (6-3, 5-1) will head to Tucson, Ariz., for its final regular season road game on Saturday, Nov. 13 to play Pac-12 South foe Arizona. The game will kick off at 12 p.m. MT and air on Pac-12 Networks.

The Utes currently hold a one-game advantage in the all-time series against Arizona when playing in Tucson, including a 35-7 win over the Wildcats in 2019. Utah has won two games in a row in Tucson (2019, 35-7; 2017, 30-24). In Utah’s last six games in Tucson, the Utes are 4-2 and have outscored Arizona 176-130 with the six games being decided by an average of 13.7 points.

Utah State football

Utah State (7-2, 4-1 MW) resumes Mountain West play this weekend with a road game at  San José State (5-5, 3-3 MW) on Saturday, Nov. 13, at 8:30 p.m. (MT). The game will be televised nationally on Fox Sports 1 (Comcast Ch. 265/HD691, DirecTV Ch. 219, DISH Ch. 150) with Jeff Levering (play-by-play) and Robert Smith (analyst) on the call.

Utah State has won eight straight games against San José State, including four straight on the road. In the last eight games in the series, USU has outscored SJSU 349-156 (43.6-19.5). USU has also won each of the last five games against SJSU by 22-plus points and has a 253-80 (50.6-16.0) scoring advantage in those contests. 

Weber St. football

Weber State returns to the road for the second game of 2021 in Cedar City as the Wildcats take on in-state rival Southern Utah Saturday afternoon. The Beehive Bowl with the Thunderbirds will kickoff at 2 p.m. at Eccles Coliseum in Cedar City. The game will be televised on ESPN+ and the ESPN app. WSU radio coverage will be on 103.1 FM “The Wave” with live stats at WeberStateSports.com.

This will be the final conference game between Weber State and Southern Utah, which has become known as the Beehive Bowl, and has seen some very memorable games in the series. The two schools have played every year since 2011, and Southern Utah joined the Big Sky in 2012. SUU is leaving the conference for the Western Athletic Conference in July 2022. Weber State has won four straight and five of the last six games against the Thunderbirds.
