The day after Utah

Things didn't go so well for WSU in Salt Lake, which is becoming a theme.

James Snook-USA TODAY Sports

This is only Utah's third season in the Pac-12 and it has already become obvious that playing in Salt Lake City isn't going to be kind for WSU.

Washington State men's basketball suffered an 81-63 loss in SLC on Saturday. That makes the men's basketball team 0-2 in Salt Lake since Utah joined the conference. The Cougars lost 62-60 at Utah in 2011-12. That game was against a Ute team that finished 6-25 overall and 3-15 in conference.

The football team traveled to Utah last year, losing 49-6. That was the game that eventually led to Marquess Wilson leaving the team. The women's basketball team lost 59-47 in Utah last season. Basically, nothing good happens when the Cougs play at Salt Lake.

Salt Lake City is quickly becoming the new Tempe.
