Let's go MUSS.

Been a rough first half, but a few more picks by St Heaps and we're on our way to a 2 touchdown win.


Where's Stockton ???

Hopefully Shane Hunter's interception saves the day...but hopefully it doesn't save Anae's job

Well Sue your nephew MacKay has made the big play

Anae's decision to not go for the fieldgoal equals his not calling for the Knee with 7 seconds left in the half against UCLA...Only Luck can intervene to overcome a really bad call.

North Ogden, Utah

So if BYU wins does that make USU the best team in the state?

Going to be a great finish!

This is where that fieldgoal could be the critical difference. Anae better hope he's still got luck on his side

Only a delusional Aggie fan would really believe that.

This BYU team is NOT the same one that lost in Logan. Play the game today and the Aggies get blown out.

This game is cooked. Bradley did NOT fumble. He was CLEARLY down. And the blind replay crew can't get it right.

Unbelievable. I guess the MWC wants to "get BYU back" for the missed replay in the SDSU game

Happy birthday Utes. How does it feel to win one you didn't earn?

If there's any justice, BYU gets in field goal range and wins it at the end.

All I've got to say is if the Yewts win because of that stolen dead-ball strip after Logan intercepted Wynn, this rivalry's going to get poisoned because that would be a gimme-game from the officials, who should've caught that on review.

Saint George, UT

Fire coach anai!
Poor play calling pushe te field goal back.

Poor play calling all year.

Leesburg, VA

Everyone knows how the Uties won, and it wasn't through quality play. It was through blind men in stripes. Disgusting.

Have fun at 12th place in the Pac-10.

See ya in the rear view mirror !

Congratulations to both teams for a great game.

Fort Worth, TX

Nice game both sides! Great defensive battle!

Congrats Utah, but I have to say it, after watching the game, there is NO WAY in the world that the better team won today, no question! A number of bad plays and unfortunate horrible missed calls by the refs, and don't pretend that, that was a fumble!!

But that said, great game guys!

Overton, NV

The Utes won because the Cougars allowed a guy to go in unblocked. Simply unacceptable.

Still, it sure does sting when it had to come down to that because of a horrible call by the officiating crew. Typical.

I'm not one of those guys who has called for the firing of Anae before today. But, if it was totally his call to go for it on 4th and 1 instead of kicking a field goal (in a game where it was already clear that points were going to be scarce), then he definitely should be shown the door.

Santaquin, UT

Now that BYU fans have taken abuse for the last 5 weeks on a "cheating win" agains SDSU, are the same fans going to admit that the ref's cheated to help the Utes win the game?

Milford, CT

chris B you are a little shaky on your predictions. definitely not a blowout as you stated before. in fact most of the utes were way cocky all year long. you know the rival game comes down to the last play.

great game though. tough loss for the cougs. some missed calls but in the end it was just a chip shot. come on guys. don't let the outside guy get around you.

congrats to the utes.

to the cougs we have a lot to look forward to next season. heaps is looking good. jordan wynn on the other hand....

Colorado Springs, CO

Points left on the field by BYU, bad call on the Bradley interception, questionable play calling by Anae... Apparently great defensive line play by Utah throughout.

Another classic. Saddened at the loss.

Lincoln, ca

So will the SDSU boosters be writing a letter to the U pres asking for a forfeit?

American Fork, Utah

Three comments...
1. Congrats to Utah!
2. Fire Anai!
3. Bad official review call on the fumble.

Cougs will be awesome next year!
