Hey, does anyone know if it's rivalry week this week?....

After so many close games I would welcome a blowout win by the Cougars. However, both teams are evenly matched on paper and it will probably come down to somebody making a play at the end of the game. Good luck to both teams on Saturday and the rest of the year.

It's just another practice for an AQ team against a non-AQ team.

Nothing to care about here, unless you're the non-AQ team and it makes you feel like one of the big-boys for a few hours.

And we don't even care about this game anymore.

"And we don't even care about this game anymore."

I'm glad you speak so well for Ute Nation. To paraphrase a fellow Ute fan on another comment board, with your history of making predictions, please stop. And any fool with a brain understands that this game means a lot to the U and our fans. So be classy and don't give Y fans any other reason to think we're not.

Go Utes!

Chris B says he doesn't even care about this game anymore but if that were true he wouldn't be on here all the time obsessing about BYU's every move. Who cares about AQ status. Boise State doesn't have it and I would take them over any BYU, Utah, Texas or USC team. If my memory serves me right they smoked BYU and the U the last few times they have met. Its one thing to be a fan its another to be a enemy-centered zealot. Just keepin it real.

Both schools have some great coaches. Classy guys who care about their teams. I am excited for this weekend, I think the home field advantage might be the deciding factor. I think it will be another game decided by three points or less.

Utah 21

This is one Ute fan who cares just as much about this game now as ever before. Before the season started I felt this would be a close game and I still think it will. Here's hoping home field advantage doesn't prevail. Utah 21 - BYU 17

There is no way U score 31 in this game. How 'bout a a friendly wager? U score 31 or more, and I will not post another comment the rest of the football season. U score 30 or less, and you agree not to post another comment the rest of the football season. Deal?

The final score will be 21 - 17. Neither offense is clicking on all cylinders and both defenses seem to be doing a good job.

I almost nailed the BYU vs Texas score. I had it at 17 - 14.
