Budget shortfall could have lasting consequences for Utah athletics

UteZone: No Utah football in 2020 could mean a rough future for the entire Utah athletic department.

Last week’s news that the Pac-12 will postpone all fall sports until spring sent shockwaves throughout the college football world. The news has significant impact on athletes, coaches, administrative staff, students, and fans as we try to cope with the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. In a conference call with media following the announcement, Utah athletic director Mark Harlan indicated that his department could see a shortfall in the range of $50-60 million in the absence of fall sports.
