    You're picking Utah to dominate TCU??? I think it will be very close. This may be the best football game, based on rank and competitiveness, ever played in the state of Utah. I think Utah will prevail because of the home field advantage.

    I can't wait! Go Utes!!!

    Utah is looking great! As a True Blue BYU fan I wish it was us instead of Utah. Keep up the great work Utah!

    Tomahawk: Can't argue with you at all, except my prediction is Utah 41 - AF 17.

    Go Utes! Go Crimson!

    PS: Happy Nevada Day!

    BD can't wait until November 6!!

    The Utes will have NO problem with Air Force this weekend. Yes, the competition will be better, no doubt. But Utah will still roll. The Utes are just too good for the Falcons and I think they know it.

    This is, in my estimation, perhaps the best football team Utah has ever had.

    Utah 35
    Air Force 17

    While I'm at it, I'll also say that I fully expect Utah to beat TCU on Nov. 6. TCU, while a great team for sure, just lacks the weapons needed to beat Utah at Rice. The home field advantage will be the difference.

    TCU 21
    Utah 38

    This D has been outstanding, but the one thing they haven't faced is good, experienced QB play.

    AFA's Jefferson, ND's Crist and TCU's Dalton will give them a good test.

    Go Utes!

    Utah's defense is a thing of beauty. We have two lock-down corners and two safeties that know how to hit.

    I expect Utah to be well-prepared and hungry against the Falcons this week!

    While this defense is as strong as any I've seen in years of bleeding red there is one thought that would make this defense even scarier.

    Paul Christian Kruger would have been a senior this year.

    Frazil man

    Assignment football involves roles, responsibility, and accountability.

    Bronco preaches "executing at a higher level." Do you know what that means? Zero responsibility and zero accountability at the individual level.

    Huge difference.

    Yeah... but if bronco said it it would have taken 10 minutes and 200 words or more.

    Assignment sound defense...sounds like he's pulling a quote from Bronco. I don't want to hear that, I want him to talk about athletes and being fast and making plays, not sticking to assignments...That is my sarcasm for the day, just trying to sound like Ute fans and their garbage spew about Bronco.

    Lamar Chapman is amazing on a corner blitz. I was dissappointed in last years defense but this year they seem to be playing better even with the 5 NFL players leaving.

    Go Utes!!!
