Las Vegas has the Utes as a 2 point favorite... only because they are playing at home. For the first time this year, I'm actually feeling a bit sorry for Chris B and AZUTE1, knowing (from things they've been writing) that their entire Ute ego is riding on the game tonight and also the game on September 21st. They've created a lot of self-pressure, considering all the (over?) confidence they've displayed over the past month or so. We'll soon find out if it was warranted... or not.

Based on what happened last year, and also who is returning on each of the 3 main instate teams, I feel the Utes will be fortunate to win one of these 2 important rivalry games. But regardless of who wins, each game will certainly be hard-fought and have close outcomes. As such, each will each be very entertaining to watch.

May the best teams win!
