Among the Huskies' wins this year were victories over No. 8 Stanford and No. 7 Oregon State.
Sarkisian said he didn't think his team played any better in the downtown venue than Husky Stadium, noting the Huskies have a good record at home.
Washington's all-time record in its arena is 357-169-21.
Playing in a pro stadium won't be a totally new experience for the Utes. They have played regular-season games at Heinz Field against Pitt and in the San Diego Chargers' Qualcomm Stadium against San Diego State in addition to several bowl games in NFL locales.
While the Utes say it matters little where they play, they said there is something different about playing in such a venue.
"I'm excited to play there," defensive end Joe Kruger said. "It's a cool experience."
Watch out for TE
The Utes have plenty of respect for Washington tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins a 6-foot-6, 266-pound sophomore who has 48 catches for 630 yards and four touchdowns this year.
Utah coach Kyle Whittingham said some of his skill on the basketball court has helped his game because he can catch the ball in traffic.
Seferian-Jenkins played in 17 games last year after the football season ended.
"He is a tremendous receiving tight end," Whittingham said. "Nobody has had a great answer for him."
Whittingham said cornerback Ryan Lacy, who sat out the Washington State game with an injury, is expected to play Saturday.
Lacy practiced and "should be good to go," Whittingham said.
