Utah Tech Traiblazers set to face Southern Utah Thunderbirds

Utah Tech travels to Cedar City to take on new in-conference rival Southern Utah on Saturday following a 44-14 loss to Weber State last week.

Utah Tech and Southern Utah meet up for the first time since 2010 on the gridiron, and for the first time since 1963 as conference opponents, as the Trailblazers hit the road to Cedar City on Saturday.

Saturday night’s contest will be the third time the two programs have faced off as NCAA opponents, and the first in 12 years, reigniting a long-dormant rivalry.

Southern Utah beat then-Dixie State 36-7 in 2009 and followed up with a 52-0 win in 2010.

The 1963 matchup occurred when both schools were junior colleges.

The Trailblazers were beaten by #12 Weber 44-14, as Weber’s defense stifled Utah Tech in the second half.

A 24-14 deficit quickly swelled into a 30-point defeat, dropping Utah Tech to 1-2.
