BYU is ranked, right where they should be, just below USU.
Good game Aggies, hope this is the game that get's your program turned around.

Iowa State appears to have found their rythym and will be a tough opponent, especially given that this is a road game for the Utes.

Utah will come out fired up and will put on a defensive show that will take the crowd out of the game.

Cant wait to see Smithson fielding punts after those 3 and outs!

Go Utes!!

Top-10 means nothing if Utah can't continue to win.

But I must admit I like it very much!!!

Go, Utes!!!!

Iowa St. is good I am excited to watch this game. The Utes defense is very solid this year I am not worried about them doing what they did to Texas Tech.

FCS is in the sports and entertainment tier on Comcast about channel 263, it won't be on FSN Utah as of now.

Utes are focused on the Cyclones, but the first two comments are about BYU. Top 10 and still have a complex? Interesting.

This will be a great test for the UTE's. It is always hard to come off a two week rest. I expect to see the UTE defence ready to go. With Iowa State two running backs our 11 guys up front will get a lot of playing time and if they hold the UTE's will win!

No it is only included in the premium sports package on comcast.

It's channel 617 for DirecTv customers

Iowa State 10
Utah 37

This will be a nice test. I think we win, fairly comfortably, but we have to be on top of our game. Iowa State has a suspect defense and frankly, I think Jordan Wynn will be able to pick apart their defense fairly easily. We need to be ready to stop the run. Cant wait for saturday! GO UTES!

We may start out slow which seems to be the norm except for SJST but then when we get our backfield cooking and our "D" stiffens it's all about going downhill and downfield. The test will be to see what the Cyclones do if the run is shut down like we did against the Pitts Heisman back. Go Utes!!

From everything I’ve read, Tex Tech is more so a putrid defensive team as opposed to ISU is a good offensive team. Reports say the Tech “team” played uninspired football (sound familiar kewgs?) and the coaching staff might be in trouble (sound familiar kewgs?).

My biggest concern in the Utes offense coming out flat due to the extended time off.

Lindon, UT

Finally, the Utes will have some competition. We'll see how good the Utah Utes really are. If they win, they will probably keep their top 10 ranking, & may go up one or two places, depending on what teams above them do. If they lose, they will drop. If they lose big, they may drop out of the top 25 altogether. Good luck Utes, from a BYU fan.

Sunnyvale, CA

Deep in my heart this game - which it seems most everyone else had written off as a auto win - troubled me as a trap. This past weekend convinces me that it will not be as easy as many expected and I hope.

We've been excellent after bye weeks and it should continue, but may not be one of the blow out wins we've grown accustomed to.

Not only are you reading a Utah article, you're commenting on the comments regarding a Utah article.

What, the train wreck down south not interesting enough for you?

Whitt is a brilliant coach who does not let his teams outthink themselves on big games. The lone exception in the last three years was the Holy War last year when Wynn was overwhelmed in the first half, but then came back to tie it up. Whitt will not let his team get a big head and think this will be an easy game. I have all the confidence in Whitt and believe the only game we fans need to worry about is the TCU game and MAYBE Notre Dame.

Go Utes! Go Crimson!

The future is bright, the future IS Crimson!!

Thanks for the good wishes Panama! Truly appreciated!
