TCU is going to be the Utes biggest hurdle to going undefeated, and the 2010 Horned Frogs aren't the same team Horned Frogs team the Utes barely beat in 2008.

Everything comes down to Saturday, and if the Utes play sloppy like they did during the second half of the Air Force game, bye bye undefeated season, hello Las Vegas Bowl.

Dang that Colorado State... robbed us Aggies (Utah State) from three consecutive "Largest Win for the Utes during a U undefeated game season" award. Grrr. USU has a legacy to preserve!

TCU is too big, fast, and focused for the yewtes. Sorry, hope all you students that live at home with mommy and daddy enjoyed it while it lasted.

One of three things happens this weekend.

1st - Utah Wins and will be ranked second in the BCS.

2nd - Utah barely loses and will still make a BCS game.

3rd - Utah loses big and drops below all other one loss teams and it's Las Vegas.

It will be interesting to see how it works out.

One of the legless arguments Ute haters always use is that “Utah had a couple of great seasons but nothing else”. In reality Utah has been a good/great program for more than 15 years. The “flash in the pan” dogma has become stale.

Just when the local media and tds say the “Utes have peaked” — they climb to the next level

If the Utes finish this season out then this team will have to be considered the best of all time. That will be a short lived title because with the increased recruting base that being in the pac 12 will bring the Utes are poised to win there first National Championship in there 2nd year in the Pac 12! Remember this post when it comes true! ;)

Go ahead byu fans start hating!

... take it Mick.

"U can't always get 'whatchu' want"

Well Ute fans there you go. That low SOS will keep the Utes from getting to the big dance and it's a moot point anyway when you lose a big game like this weekend.

The game last weekend at AFA showed us what kind of performance to expect when real competition shows up to play.

I can't imagine the excitement at BCS HQ. They are practicing now and on Saturday afternoon, with puppy dog tears in their eyes and in perfect unison they will issue a heartfelt BCS 'buh bye' to the 'little brother', wannabe NC, Utah Utes.

It was a great run boys. Maybe, with some luck, you'll pull out a Las Vegas Bowl. How sweet it is!

Uh! wrong article raybies.
Hate to say it but TCU is stronger,more consistant and balanced team. I don't think we can win.

Salt Lake City, UT

I've said it since WEEK ONE. Utah will be the 2010 national champions and go undefeated for a THIRD TIME.

TCU is good, but with the game in SLC not a chance tcu gets a win.

Utah 34
TCU 17

Real National Championships
Utah 1 and counting
Byu Still 0

Utah does have a good program for the MWC, but will find life different in the PAC 12 when they face tougher competition. So, enjoy this year, and hopefully you get another patsy in the BCS.

Cedar Hills, UT

Cool look back at what has been accomplished over six years by the Utes! Can't really make a comparison until they finish up this year though.

Nice to see the "haters" out in force too. You know... there is an ariticle you might want to check out about SDSU accusing the Y of cheating. Take a look, it is really the only thing to read about the byu football program right now.

I think it's funny that the cougs on the east coast are made just like the ones here. The only difference is that most of the intelligent cougar fans stopped the whole "you beat a patsy team" in the BCS when we dominated Alabama. I think it's funny that BYU has never even come close to BCS game and they are still making fun of the fact that we only beat PItt on our FIRST BCS game. Have fun being independent!

Do I really have to remember? Will there be a quiz?

Then please remember that I said that the Utes finish the season with three losses.

NC UTES 2010, promise to keep this name throughout the season.

Draper, UT


it's too bad the Utes have to end the season by playing the worst cupcake of all on November 27.

The sad thing about this game is that it can only be found on CBS-C. Thank you MWC. It should be the game of the week.

Sorry to throw cold water on your "legless" argument, but Utah's record doesn't support your claims hedgehog.

Utah has been mediocre to good since 1994, but prior to 2004, 1994 was the only year in Utah's entire history that could remotely be considered "great".

1994 10-2 #10/#8 WAC 2nd tie with BYU #18/#10--Great
1995 7-4 1st--Mediocre
1996 8-4 3rd--Good
1997 6-5 4th--Mediocre
1998 7-4 5th--Mediocre
1999 9-3 1st tie with BYU--Good
2000 4-7 5th--Bad
2001 8-4 3rd--Good
2002 5-6 5th--Bad
2003 10-2 #21/#21 1st--Good
2004 12-0 #4/#5 1st--Great
2005 7-5 4th--Mediocre
2006 8-5 3rd--Mediocre
2007 9-4 3rd--Good
2008 13-0 #2/#4 1st--Great
2009 10-3 #18/#18 3rd--Good
2010 8-0--potientially Great

i find it funny that guys like sammyg dog the vegas bowl like it's some kind of loser bowl when, for the past two years, the cougs were the ones in all the bcs AND nc hype and alas, they ended up in the vegas bowl both years because they fell short. doesn't anyone else remember the '08 quest for perfection or the first week win over oklahoma last year and how all the "experts" were saying byu has a legit shot at going to an nc game? if utah drops one and we end up in the vegas bowl that's bad at all. sure we have high expectations but i'd rather spend a weekend in vegas than a weekend in new mexico or, at worst, at home

"The sad thing about this game is that it can only be found on CBS-C. Thank you MWC. It should be the game of the week."

Actually the blame is mostly on Comcast. The Mtn is a channel all subscribers get with their basic subscription, CBS-C requires you to upgrade your subscription, so if a few big games a year are televised on CBS-C then they find most subscribers call to upgrade.

It is always great when the Cable Company is also the owner of the station that broadcasts your favorite college team, no way they would ever use their position to profit.

I can't figure out why BYU fans keep posting smack about Utah. What do you have to boast? All you can do is talk about Utah's 'future' losses and your own team's success decades in the past. I get it, BYU ruled the 80's...along with Boy George. I think it's time to move on. You're even more pathetic than your team.
