The First Football Game Since Covid Kicks Off Tonight, You Can Watch It

Football is back. Even if it is high school football, it is worth celebrating.

In a normal year this would be a relatively meaningless happening — and likely would never make the Outkick radar — but the state of Utah gets back on the gridiron this evening at 9pmET/7pmMT and that is such a glorious thing that watching the live stream sounds like a fine idea.

Since most all of you have no idea about these two teams, here are the cliff notes:

Herriman (West Herriman, UT) is one of the largest schools in Utah, about 25 miles south of Salt Lake City and it will host Davis (Kaysville, UT).

Herriman went 9-3 last season, which was its best season since 2015 when it won the state title. The team has aspirations of being one of the better teams in its class again this year. Its mascot is the Mustangs, if you wish to root for one over the other.

Rivals.com lists two players from Herriman in its database, with outside linebacker Siua Kila and and teammate Manaia Brown both gaining entry to its database.

Its Class of 2019 sent its quarterback to BYU, while the Class of 2018 had a trio of prospects sign with colleges. Theoretically there will be talent on the field.

Davis has alternated winning and losing seasons over the last several years and closed the 2019 campaign at 4-6.

In the history of its program it has only had nine players entered into the Rivals database. So rooting for the Darts may make you a fan of the underdog?

Capacity for the game will be at 25% and the schools said tickets were sold out inside of an hour.

“In other years this would be awesome for our school (to open the football calendar for the country), but this year I think it’s going to be a curse,” Herriman principal Todd Quarnberg told Deseret News.

Who will win? We have no clue. But it is great to have football back.

  1. Right down the road from me.
    Interesting enough, only BYU is still planning to play college football in the state of Utah. University of Utah isn’t playing because Pac 12 cancelled. Utah State isn’t playing because the Mountain West cancelled. Some even smaller colleges cancelled as well. However, we are still playing High School Football in Utah. Good for them.
