PROVO, Utah – BYU swim and dive will face rival Utah in a Deseret First Duel matchup this Saturday at 11 a.m. MDT in the Richards Building Pool.

“This meet should be a really close one,” BYU head coach John Brooks said. “Both teams have pretty good groups, and it should be a good battle on both the men’s and women’s sides. I’ve enjoyed the rivalry between their head coach Joe and myself. It has been healthy. It should be a great meet and we expect to have good all-around sportsmanship from both sides.”

In the teams’ last meeting, the Cougars lost to the Utes, with the men dropping 170-126 and the women losing 205-93. BYU will look to rebound after tough losses last weekend against Denver and Minnesota.

Saturday's rivalry matchup will be the last home meet of the season for the Cougars. Admission is free and all fans are invited to come support the team. Results will be posted on the men’s and women’s schedule pages at the conclusion of the meet.
