Hey, Chris B, Hedgie, Ernest T. Bass and all Utesies.
What's us with the #6 ranked QB in the world? Not even a 100 yards passing and no TD's
Can't wait for this loss. ahhahahahahaha

South Jordan, UT

Good to get out of there with a win. Utah is lucky to win this one. Glad they got the turnovers finally. Every great year needs some luck. Any win is a good win.

Providence, UT


We got it done! Great defense at the end!!

Lees Summit, MO

Hmmm...a win is a win!!

Great job Utes!

London, United Kingdom

As usual, a Cougar posts first to the Ute board. I'm glad the Utes ground it out, particularly so Yankee from Layton can go eat his crow!

I, for one, am glad Utah doesn't have to go to AF again unless they want to. The Cadets are a tough out on your best day. Ugly, but nice, win Utes!

Lynchburg, VA

Good call yankee doodle..... Go Utes! Way to win it through adversity! Even top teams will have tough games that they struggle through, but the best teams win those, too! One proud Ute fan here!

West Jordan, Utah

5 Turnover and we still beat you! This Utah team is ready for the BCS Championship game. They should jump at least 2 sports in the polls this week!

West Jordan, UT

Way to go, Utah!!!! On a day when many top ten teams lost, it was great to see you dig down and win this game. You are class all the way!!!!! 8-0 is a beautiful thing!

Payson, UT

great test. Air Force came in with a great game plan for the first half, only the turnovers neutralized that.
The second half, there was one lucky AF touchdown on a blown coverage, but overall, the linebackers and D-Line were VERY solid the entire second half.

A couple bad play calls on offense. Hopefully we can learn and improve. I think we needed a close game to get us back to reality.

Good to get the win over a very capable team. Jefferson looked great until the 4th Q.

Go Utes, lets keep on movin up

Big showdown next week!


Albuquerque, NM

yankee doodle, 8-0 baby! Short and sweat! Right back at ya!

Salt Lake City, UT

Utah fan here.

While this was just one game, I wasn't overly impressed with Utah. While they certainly are a very good team, I have decided they are not BCS material.

TCU will beat Utah by 10 or more next week.

Las Vegas bowl this year.

South Jordan, UT

Whit was ill prepared for this game. He talked his team into believing AF was better. They were tonight. No excuses. We won but will not move up the BCS. Wynn looked scared. Need to fix some things or TCU will crush us.

Kaysville, UT

Utes won-- A W is a W.
By the way yankee doodle... How's dem Cougs a doin' down south????

Sunnyvale, CA

yankee doodle - you are a funny, funny zoob. Still undefeated. And I hear Heaps tried throwing some sodas to his receivers on the bus after one of your games and they dropped them too.

re: yankee doodle

AFA is tough.
Oklahoma only beat Air Force by 3 points in Norman, and afterward Oklahoma was ranked #1 in the country.

Hey yankee doodle,

Remind me how the Y did against Air Force?

Sandy, UT

I'm not even suprised that a BYU fan comments first on a Utah related article. Your cougars not interesting enough? Also vote Morgan Philpot for Utah's Second Congressional District.

Fort Worth, Texas

You do know that a football game is 4Qtrs?

I am willing to bet you would love it if Heaps had these numbers:
Wynn 15/23 148 1/1 @AFA

As a Ute those are medicore numbers, and that INT was even worse.

Utah fell a sleep in the 4th, but give credit to AFA for making big plays to get back into the game.

Overall I am happy we won, but disappointed on how the team started and finished the game. We can not play like this next week or we will get smocked at home.

Go Utes!!!

Syracuse, ut

Congrats on the win Utes, but TCU will not be so kind in the turnover department.

Salt Lake City, UT

And what loss would that be, yankee doodle? When I looked at the final score, it said Utes 28-23 Air Force. Final. Final score. Utes win. 8-0. Meaning they didn't lose. No loss. 8 wins, 0 losses. Undefeated.

We got lucky, glad the D shut down AFA in the last 19 seconds, it was a nailbiter!
So excited for TCU next week.
