ESPN
700 Sports Radio will serve as Utah’s radio headquarters during the upcoming
college bowl season, with the “Home of the Utes” providing the most
in-depth coverage in the build-up to the MAACO Bowl Las Vegas on Wednesday,
December 22, when the #19-ranked University of Utah will
face off against the #10 Boise State Broncos in a
much-anticipated regional showdown in the desert. The MAACO Bowl Las Vegas will
be just one of 18 bowl games hitting the ESPN 700 airwaves throughout December
and January, culminating with all five BCS contests, including the Tostitos
BCS National Championship Game
between #1 Auburn and #2 Oregon on Monday,
January 10
.

 

Every
weekday afternoon from 2:00-6:00 p.m. MT, the “Bill & Spence”
Show
with Bill Riley & Spencer Checketts will be the place to go
for all things MAACO Bowl Las Vegas, which began on Monday when the duo caught
Utah Football Head Coach Kyle Whittingham’s initial reactions to Sunday
night’s bowl announcement and the match-up with the Broncos. “Bill &
Spence” is also where to get the best information and opinion on the National
Basketball Association, as proven on Tuesday when the duo talked with ESPN
play-by-play voice Mike Breen and Utah Jazz color analyst Matt
Harpering
. Those interviews and more are available by heading to the “Bill & Spence” archive
page
in the audio section of ESPN700Sports.com,
which is updated throughout the show’s daily broadcast.

 

The
unpredictable and entertaining chatter will continue on “Bill & Spence”
today during “Hot or Not Wednesday,” when the guys catch up with Real
Salt Lake defender Nat Borchers at 4:20 p.m. MT to discuss RSL’s
recent personnel moves and the always-busy MLS offseason. Bill & Spence
will then take their talents to South Beach (mentally, anyways) for today’s “Big
Interview of the Day” at 5:10 p.m.
, when the NBA talk continues with former
Jazz man and current Miami Heat analyst John Crotty breaking down
tonight’s huge Jazz-Heat match-up at Energy Solutions Arena. On Thursday, the
show will welcome its resident “NBA Insider,” Gordon Chiesa, in addition
to Real Salt Lake Founder and former Utah Jazz President Dave Checketts
for his weekly “Big Interview” appearance.

the weather gets colder on the Wasatch Front, the hoops action on “The Hill”

and Women’s Basketball squads this week. The Lady Utes (4-5) will look for its
28th win in as many games against Idaho State (5-4) this evening at
