Busy day for the Utes today. Coach Kyle Whittingham will attend a press conference in El Paso, Texas as part of the pre-bowl events then the Utes start their bowl preparations this afternoon. It will be interesting to see what the team's attitude is. The players who were available for the bowl announcement said they believe the Utes will be able to put that disappointing loss to Colorado behind them. Today will be the first indication of whether or not they've been able to do that. My hunch is they will. Utah has a short but very good bowl tradition and that will definitely serve as motivation. - Lya Wodraska
