PROVO -- In their second Deseret Duel meet of the season, the No. 35 BYU Cougars will travel to Salt Lake City to take on No. 11 Utah at 7 p.m. on Friday. The meet is worth three points in the annual Deseret Duel Rivalry. However, BYU has already secured its victory with a current 37-10 lead over the Utes.

In the last meeting between the two teams, BYU fell despite a strong performance, losing 195.925-194.375. BYU head coach Brad Cattermole says that his team is looking forward to the opportunity to compete against Utah again.

“We always look forward to going to the University of Utah,” Cattermole said. “Our history at Utah has been good as far as scores go so we are hoping to do well there this year.”

The Cougars have already competed once this week, falling to SUU 195.950-195.350. The Utes last competed against the University of Florida and were defeated despite scoring their team season-best, 196.500. Utah is currently ranked No. 1 in the North Central region while BYU is ranked No. 7.

The contest will be broadcast live via Utah’s website and can be viewed by clicking here. Live stats will also be provided and can be seen here. KTVX-ABC 4 will broadcast the meet on Mar. 28 at 11 a.m. MT and The Mtn. will also re-air the meet on Mar. 31 at 8 p.m. MT.

The meet is the Cougars final regular-season meet. If BYU is still ranked in the nation’s top 35 when the final national rankings are released on March 29th, the Cougars will receive an invitation to compete at the NCAA Regionals. The North Central Regional will take place in Salt Lake City in the Huntsman Center at 6 p.m. MT on April 10.
