This is a great week!

All the U haters predicted a loss against AF, now are certain of a U loss to TCU! No matter what you think, the game will be played on the field! And it will be epic! We win Saturday, we will be in a BCS game!

See you at Game Day!

Go Utes! Beat the toads!!

Even if Utah wins out and doesnt get to the national championship game, Utah may get a chance to play the team favored to win the NC this year - Oregon -- just next year.

After Utah blew out AF in the first half, they seemed to go to sleep dreaming about beating Alabama 3 years ago and nearly lost the game. Live in the present Utah, stay focused, or you will never know what could have been.

This is what the future holds - national attention for the Utes.

Go Utes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

"Dreams are starting to come true"

I think by late Saturday afternoon it will be a huge colossal, cataclysmic beat down.

Whether its a nailbiter of just a few points or a blowout it won't make any difference. TCU is coming to town to dish out a beating.

Sammyg's Nightmare at RES, a dream come true. Trick or Treat!

Go TCU. Go BYU.

I'll root for the Utes post-season. Ha ha

I've said it since week one and I'll say it again.

Utah WILL WIN the 2010 national championship.

People from both sides laughed at me early on, but my predictions are gaining support from both sides now.

Boise State isn't a concern with what the final strength of schedules will say.

Mark it down. 2010 Utah Utes National Champions.

You know this will be a test for TCU as well. They've had most of the same opponents as Utah.

I think it's going to be a very close game, similar to the game 2 years ago when it came down to which team had more mistakes. The Utes have to execute, and execute flawlessly! They can't play like they did in the 4th quarter against Air Force or the frogs will eat us alive!

I have a feeling this will be THE best game to watch this season (with the possible exception of another BCS bowl game.) I'm looking forward to this one more than the BYU game.

Two top 5 teams playing in the state of Utah.

And neither of them is mighty BYU.

No wonder sammyg is in such a bad mood. Combine the Utah/TCU matchup that the nation will be watching with a pathetic excuse of a football team in Provo, and it's amazing BYU fans are still posting at all.

Time to open up the play book. The game was close at Air Force because the coaches called a way to conservative game plan. Its like the offense had one play and one play only. I thought the name of the game was to keep your opponent guessing. Air Force loaded up the box with 8 or 9 players and we still ran it on almost every play. The arrogance and bone headedness of the coaching staff almost cost us the game.

This will be the game of year for sure! Game Day is in town and the Utes are riding a 22 game home win streak. I predict that Utes will win in 2 overtimes and be ranked 3rd jumping Boise State.

Sammyg your going to have to root for Utah in the post season because your team will be no where near it! ;)

Man... I am anxious for this one to start... College Game Day and then the 2 of the best teams in the country battling it out for what could be a NC game... This game is going to be epic, I got my blackout jersey and I am ready to go... This week can not go fast enough!!

Good luck Utes. I'm cheering for you to finish what we started in 1984.

As much as a detest Utes Fans (very similar to the SDSU fans I have to put up), this is an epic match-up! What a way to leave the MWC. Go, Frogs!

@Shawnm750

You are absolutely correct. This will be a 'Clash of the Titans' game. I'm looking forward to it as well.

In all seriousness, if the Utes come out of this one then I will be convinced of their ability. Doesn't mean that I'm a fan but until the regular season is over... it ain't over.

Until they played the Falcons my opinion was that the Utes had not been tested and all of the fan hype was not warranted. Too many unfortunate errors for the Falcons on Saturday and for Ute fans to claim that everyone of them was a forced error is just not exactly true but that's football.

Several fans almost had a heart attack on Saturday and that just shows that the scales can tip very easily against the Utes this Saturday and in any of the next games where the competition is improved or has had time to improve in the case of BYU.

November will be the month to remember.

TCU by 14.

I still don't see a NC even if the Utes run the board. Plenty of stronger programs out there.

Gonna be a good game, don't really cheer for either team, but looking forward to some quality college football.

It's all on the line now. For the BCS busters and their fans one loss kills the season. Better show up and hang onto the ball. Otherwise, Las Vegas beckons.

Zoob fans...here's the difference-we've beaten TCU 3 out of the last 4. We have done what you or others in the MWC can't do...match their speed, quickness, toughness and athleticism. They are ridiculously talented but don't look now, so are we. Crazy game, crazy atmosphere, and crazy implications but that's what top programs do. Next year respect will be given through our conference affiliations And of course an even better team, recruiting has already surpassed previous levels and it's something were frankly getting used to. Depth, talent, quickness, toughness and experience is something we'll show you this year, next and for years to come. Just think, the great white hope-heaps will be 0-3 against Wynn before his senior year. You have a lot to look forward to...so do we!!

Love the confidence of the U fans. Top programs and their fans should feel and expect that they can beat any opponent and win every week. The U is such a program. Congrats, on mastering the scheduling like BSU, and then winning.

I am glad Utah gets to play another strong team this year during the regular season. This will show TCU and/or Utah's true colors. Hope the winner gets to take the national championship (and does!).
