The Utes got six sacks and limited the Sun Devils to just 293 yards. ASU scored 50-plus points in five of its eight games. Its 46.6 points per game was the sixth-highest average in the nation. But 166 of the Sun Devils’ yards came in the fourth quarter, when the Utah front collapsed. It drops at least two half-grades for doing that.

Senior running back Marion Grice gained 136 yards on 20 carries for perhaps his best game of the season.

I have a lot of respect for coach Kyle, but I think he must have been in a different 4th quarter then the rest of us. They completely abandoned the game that got them to the 4th quarter with the lead. And I loved the game up to that point. They really gave this one away and coaching is an appropriate place to put the blame. Usually Kyle is the best in the state.

Rhett, Rhett, Rhett, I am surprised your still writing. I figured you would be hiding since your projection that USU would not win six games. I suppose your okay since you are writing about fact now, instead of conjecture. Just to remind you, USU is bowl eligible with 2 games to play. Back to the drawing board for you Rhettski!
