The Utah Utes football statistical leaders are individual statistical leaders of the Utah Utes football program in various categories,[1] including passing, rushing, receiving, total offense, defensive stats, and kicking. Within those areas, the lists identify single-game, single-season, and career leaders. The Utes represent the University of Utah in the NCAA's Pac-12 Conference.

Although Utah began competing in intercollegiate football in 1892,[1] the school's official record book does not generally have entries from before the 1960s, as records from before this period are often incomplete and inconsistent.

These lists are dominated by more recent players for several reasons:

  • Since the 1960s, seasons have increased from 10 games to 11 and then 12 games in length.
  • The NCAA didn't allow freshmen to play varsity football until 1972 (with the exception of the World War II years), allowing players to have four-year careers.
  • Bowl games only began counting toward single-season and career statistics in 2002.[2] The Utes have played in 11 bowl games since then, giving many recent players an extra game to accumulate statistics.

These lists are updated through the end of the 2016 season.
