The 1924 Utah Utes football team represented the University of Utah during the 1924 college football season. Utah played Drake, which was the first time Utah played a team east of the Rocky Mountains. One of the assistant coaches for Drake was Ike Armstrong. Armstrong expressed his interest in the head coaching position at Utah and was hired.[1] Armstrong ended-up coaching the Utes for twenty-five years, and had a record of 141–55–15.[2]
