Commentary: Top 10 BYU, Utah or USU College Football Games of 2013

No. 10: Boise State at BYU Next » 1 of 10 « Prev

Date: Oct. 25

Venue: LaVell Edwards Stadium

Last year's Boise State game was one of many missed opportunities as the Cougars fell 7-6 on the Smurf Turf after a failed 2-point conversion.

Now, if BYU wants to take back the title of the premier team not in an automatic qualifying conference, it has to take it away from the Broncos. It can do just that as the Broncos visit LaVell Edwards Stadium.

The Cougars better take this opportunity. This might be the best shot they get before Chris Petersen builds Boise State into a top five program again.

West Point , UT

No Utah at USC in the Coliseum? No BYU at USU? Those two games being left off the list is a little surprising. Other than that I agree with the list. Is it Thursday yet?

Logan, UT

Agreed, Cougsndawgs. UCLA vs Utah makes the list, but neither of those does? Really? It's almost as if they picked the games at random...

Queen Creek, AZ

Gary Andersen was not able to beat BYU?! Must have been a different Gary Andersen coaching USU on Oct 1, 2010.

Hampton, VA

I agree about USU-BYU, but not so much Utah at USC. UCLA is predicted to take the South and they play at Rice-Eccles where they lost in 2011. The game that doesn't belong is Utah at Oregon. Sure Oregon is highly and rightfully ranked but that game is beyond winnable for the Utes. They have a much better shot at beating Stanford at home and their less formidable offense even if it is quite slim.
As for the order of games I think Texas at BYU is bigger than BYU at Notre Dame for the same reason, it's just more winnable being at LES.

West Jordan, UT

that's what they said about Utah when they played Alabama. This is college football. Anything can happen.
