Low scoring? What game is the author watching?

Salt Lake City, UT

I am waiting for the Duckhunter's professional anaylsis of the game.

I am a Cougar fan, but after this smack down from Utah, there better not be any more BYU fan posts on Utah articles. We have no right to talk any smack the rest of this season.

Utah was a 6 point underdog. Vegas hates Utah.

Layton, UT

This next week, we will find out what BYU this team is made of. They have a short week and go up against UCF. I wish them the best, and I hope this game hurts so they don't lose another game.

Congrats Utes. Tonight, your team played outstanding ball! Win the PAC!

Cedar Hills, UT

Why has the D news not reported the final score? hmmmm

Because the Utes just put the biggest beat down in the rivalry in the last 30 year.

I'm sure the cougs will look much better against Idaho St and company. Maybe not though. Jake Heaps looks\ed scared. I see USU coming into to Provo and winning.

Go Utes!

Saint George, UT

The sad thing is, BYU will still go to a bowl game this year with that schedule.


Hold on everybody. Are we sure the better team won this time?

Impressive win, Utes. I expected a Ute win, but with a much closer score.

Good day for all the state schools in Utah, with Weber State beating Sacramento State 49-17, Southern Utah over WAC-bound Texas-San Antonio 45-22, Dixie State over Simon Fraser 42-7, and Snow over Pima 35-14.

As promised, the season quarterback rating for the starting QBs of the seven Utah schools:

Keeton (USU): 154.3
Sorensen (SUU): 140.0
Hoke (WSU): 138.7
Eastman (Snow): 137.7
Stevenson (DSC): 128.4
Wynn (Utah): 120.1
Heaps (BYU): 106.7

Can someone stop John White?

Police is chasing him on I-15...but he kept running like he ran through BYU D.


"Oh man, the Utes are in for a rude awakening when they get to Provo on September 17th! Mark my words." -Every coug fan on this board who has been repeating some variation of this, maybe just keep your foot in your mouth for awhile.

It's a great time to be a UTE!!!!

Bronx, NY

there maybe a reason BYU had to go independent.

First of all- THE BETTER TEAM WON- and I hope the Utes have a stellar season.

Second- I feel a little lied to as a fan. I thought we (BYU) had a good team. Now it looks like our super powered front 7 are only good for 30 minutes- and there's no suitable backups. If those guys are too tired to play in the second half, they're being conditioned improperly. Our stellar receiving core is getting shut out in man coverage. Our three headed monster (RBs) are more like a 3 headed kitten.

Third-Our secondary is terrible- even I know that you shouldn't let receivers run free behind our defenders.

Fourth- Tanner Mangum can't get here soon enough!


The only thing better than beating the cougs twice in a year is doing it twice in 10 months =)


Washington, UT

Hey Ducky,

Hold on, stop the presses, this just in: Ducky burns his genuine BYU Heaps jersey and moves permanently from Utah County to live on an Indian reservation in North Dakota! We're gonna miss you Ducky.

Meanwhile ESPN is firing everyone associated with the BYU contract and meeting with lawyers to figure out damage control.


So any more questions why the U went to the PAC 12 and BYU didn't?

Let's just be grateful that Utah is playing a PAC 12 schedule while BYU plays a WAC schedule.

If not, it would get worse and worse.

BYU is a joke. Doman should be fired tomorrow. Mendenhall should probably resign.

I've been to all but three home games since 1995, and I'm done with this joke of a football team and especially coaching staff.

Heaps may be the most overrated QB of all time.

Hope Apo, Van Noy and the other few legit athletes on the team do what's in their best interest and transfer to a real program.


I don't know, it looked like Riley Nelson's knee was down on that fumble at the end of the 4th quarter. I guess we'll never really know who the better team was.

Springville, UT

The best I can say at this time while I'm tucked in this fetal position is...

it hurts, it was not expected, and oh... congrats to the Utes.

You're the better team at this point in time.

Cougars... pathetic, just plain pathetic
