Combined record to date 41 Wins; 63 losses. 40$ Nuff said. And assumming BYU wins out the current record of teams they will have beaten this year is 25 Wins and 47 losses. Approximately 35%. Nuff said.

Salt Lake City, Utah

The Utes are winless against the WAC, winless on the road, winless against conference teams with more than 3 wins, and on the brink of bowl elimination against a team the Utes have never beaten. Nuff said.

What does the Utes' schedule have to do with this story? How do Utah's struggles make your opponents better or your wins more quality?

When will BYU fans stop looking at every short coming through the lens of "yea but Utah _______" fill in the blank.

If you want to bash on the Utes, do it on a story about Utah, but you might want to beat Utah at least once before you do that.

Salt Lake City, UT

DOINK!! I'll never forget the sound of the rattle of that goal post.
