Template:1960 Skyline Conference football standings
The 1960 Utah Utes football team represented the University of Utah during the 1960 college football season. Home games were played on campus in Salt Lake City at Ute Stadium.
Under third-year head coach
Ray Nagel, the Utes were 7–3 overall and 5–1 in the Mountain States Conference (Skyline). They were led on the field by senior quarterback Terry Nofsinger.
New Mexico was not played in 1960, so Utah finished a half game behind co-champions Utah State and Wyoming in the standings. The Utes denied the undefeated Aggies an outright title and a perfect regular season with a 6–0 shutout in the conference finale on November 19 in Salt Lake City.
For the second straight year, Utah did not face longtime
rival Colorado; the teams met in 1961 and 1962, then the series went on hiatus until 2011, when both schools joined the Pac-12 Conference.
