Runnin' Utes to play BYU in neutral-court contest

SALT LAKE CITY – Larry H. Miller Sports & Entertainment officials announced today the schedule for the second edition of the Zions Bank Beehive Classic on Saturday, Dec. 8 at Vivint Smart Home Arena. The Utah Runnin' Utes will play BYU at noon followed by Utah State University against Weber State University at 2:30 p.m. (MT).
 
Public ticket sales begin Aug. 21 at 10 a.m. MT through each of the participating schools' athletic department ticket offices, Vivint Smart Home Arena box office and online at www.vivintarena.com. Ticket purchases provide entry for two games.
 
A portion of the proceeds from the inaugural Zions Bank Beehive Classic last year netted a $30,000 total contribution to the scholarship funds of the four participating universities.
 
"Vivint Smart Home Arena is excited to host these four great in-state schools and their fans in a community celebration of basketball," said Jim Olson, president of Vivint Smart Home Arena, the 18,306-seat downtown Salt Lake City venue and home of the Utah Jazz. "The Zions Bank Beehive Classic is a unique opportunity to bring these teams together in one place for a college basketball showcase."

Both games will be televised with a complete broadcast schedule to be released at a later date. Each school will also have its own radio broadcast.
 
The Zions Bank Beehive Classic features the four teams playing in an annual doubleheader each December from 2017-19. The schools rotate opponents in a round-robin format over the three years. Last December, Utah defeated Utah State 77-67 in the opener and BYU held off Weber State 74-68 in the second game before 7,729 fans.
