Utah is coming off a tough 20-17 loss at Oregon Saturday at Autzen Stadium.

As the Utes get ready to close out the regular season at Colorado, maybe it’s time to reflect on things for which to be grateful.

The last time Utah played at Colorado , in 2020, it was during the pandemic and no fans were allowed to watch the game in person on a snowy, cold day at Folsom Field in Boulder.

This season, fans have turned out in droves to watch college football in person.

Recently, Utes linebacker Karene Reid expressed gratitude for the opportunity to play with his brother, Gabe, who transferred to Utah from Stanford. Gabe Reid led the Utes in tackles against Oregon with eight.

“It’s been amazing. I can’t believe it’s almost done. It’s been such a blast that I’ve lost track of time,” Karene Reid said. “When I see him making plays, it’s as if I’m making it. I’m so happy for him and his success. I’ve seen him work ever since we were little. To see that pay off for him has been amazing.”
