Any word on an opponent?

The LAS VEGAS BOWL. How humiliating. Hedgehog, ChrisB and the rest of the BYU-Haters must be wearing paper bags on their heads after what they spewed forth when it looked like BYU would be relegated to the same bowl for years to come while they went off to the PAC-12. There is poetic justice in this invitation for the BYU-haters. LoL!!!

From one BYU fan to the U ... Congratulations. I wish you well in your last opportunity to represent the MWC. I fully expect Coach Whit to continue the pattern of post-season success. I hope you get an east-coast opponent and thoroughly trounce them.

I thought the yewts hated the Las Vegas Bowl.. Based on what they've said in the past I have to wonder why they'd even accept an invitation to such a lowly Bowl?

Does an opponent even want to play?

The bowl win streak won't be ending any time soon.

Utah in a rout(over whoever)

Utah 38

Poetic justice.

Utah vs. Toledo.

Can't wait to get my tickets.

Nevada, Toledo, Ohio....these are the names being rumored.

I think most Ute fans see the Vegas Bowl as a great destination for MWC teams as it means you've either won the MWC or someone else in the conference went BCS and left you the spot. It's a good bowl in that situation. I'm excited to watch it, and I think it's great BYU has done so well at it.

Going forward, it means probably at least 5th place in the PAC-10, which won't be Utah's season goal--even if it's the season's result.

I hear Boise is in the mix....

This is too funny!.....Is this the same Las Vegas Bowl the Ute fans were making fun of just a few months ago?...That it was BYU'S destiny every year! That their Football program was beyond such lowly Bowls?....Too funny!

Vegas Bowl -- another reason the MWC is on the way out. New Mexico Bowl -- yet another reason. Bummer. At least it allows for 15 more practices.

Bountiful, UT

Yeah, baby! Going to the Vegas Bowl every few years is about right.

As a Ute fan I've realized that games are not handed to you on a silver platter, every win is earned. (And then, of course, sometimes magic happens.)

LV Bowl it is! I'll be there!

Lyman, WY

Congratulations utes. Get used to this bowl, because that is where the 4th or 5th place team from the Pac 12 goes every year. That is where utah is going to finish year in and year out.

salt lake city, utah

couldn't the vegas bowl invited their good friends byu?

Ann Arbor, MI

Question for all you kewgs. What bowl can you tds look forward to in the future?

crickets crickets crieckets.

Yea, I know it's easier to rip on the Utes than to look at your own program. Then again, is it rally a program?

BYU and the Las Vegas bowl are sick of each other. It's time for some new scenery, and Utah is a great pick. It's close enough to Salt Lake to get a good amount of fans and Utah is good enough to beat any team they face (although the same could be said for many, many teams; it just depends on how the team plays that day). Whether they win or not is up to them. I think they'll win (unless they play Boise State).

Although the LV bowl is the best non-BCS bowl a MWC team can get, I'm kind of glad BYU isn't going. Since I will likely go to the game, the New Mexico bowl wouldn't be too bad-- it's early enough that I can get it over with soon after finals and get a nice long, uninterrupted break.

Bowl streak started there, and there it will probably end, if they end up playing Boise St.

Nevada is going to the Maaco Bowl and will beat Utah more than if Boise State was the opponent. Mark that down Chrissy.

Nevada 44
Utah 12

Glad to see little brother (BYU fans) are out trolling once again on stories about the U of U. I would hate it if there was nowhere for you to spout your jealousy.

Salt Lake City, UT

Pebble Of The Marne

lol, your BYU obsession is showing.

Instead of talking about Utah's invite to the LV bowl and the Utes' possible opponent, your only concern is whining about BYU fan.

Once a little brother, always a little brother.

Now tell us how excited U are to be playing in the LV bowl.

You must be projecting your inner Wyoming ineptness Live Hard. Rooting for the Cowboys is taking its toll.

Even with a mediocre 6-6 record, the independent Cougars won't have any trouble getting into a bowl game EVERY year; and those down years will be few and far between.

No worries. BYU will be playing in bowls every year for years to come.
