Utah Secondary is proving it can play, but it hasn't gone up against a valid passing attack yet, other than USC. Still, they look decent and obviously have the skills. Now it's just execution for these guys and the defense will be just fine.

What a story line. The Huskies are the only PAC12 team Utah hasn't beaten. Washington has its best start in 5 years. Utah will improve its scarce record with the Huskies to 6-1 this week.

Washington has yet to play in SLC. Give Whit 2 weeks to prepare and he never loses. I expect a great game plan.

No doubt, this game is winnable. It will be fun. Too bad its during Priesthood session. I will be in Priesthood session, hoping for a little Karma.

It's great to see our Defensive Secondary -- who positioned themselves as a huge question mark in the preseason -- to be leading the Pac-12 in Pass Efficiency, but let us not get too cocky. We've only played 3 games thus far: one of them was against an FCS team, and another was against a mediocre mid-majored nobody whose overHYPED QB couldn't have dropped the ball onto the turf more than if he were AIMING at it. Our game vs. USC is a better benchmark, and I believe Barkley was fairly successful against us.

UW's Price is currently leading the nation in TD passes. We gotta take this game seriously. The Huskies are a good team.

It will all come down to Arizona State - Utah for a trip to the inaugural Pac 12 championship game!

the Utes lose a close one at home. Better luck next time. At least there is Or.St. to look forward to beating.

I'm expecting a good game. I think our secondary will hold their own against Washington's passing game. I think the biggest question mark is our offense/Jordan Wynn. If Wynn can have a decent game I think we will pull out a win. He just needs to keep throwing to Dres Anderson. That guy can catch anything thrown his way.

Amen Jazzfan 14. I keep wondering how we get the ball to Dres. He needs 7-10 touches a game. He is so fast and shifty. His father was an NFL player and has been around athletes his whole life. His goals are lofty and has a mentor that has set high expectations. He reminds me of Steve Smith or Shaky. Every time he touches the ball, it could be 6 points.

Maybe the Utes will beat them 54-10. Oh wait, the Huskies won't give up and roll over.

Chris B. already has you playing the championship game. LOL. You still need 5 wins to become bowl eligible. Talk about someone putting the cart before the horse. Why don't you work on that before you worry about the championship game.

Go Sark!
Go Huskies!

Good to see Wash come to town. As much as I would like to see the U to win. Bad feeling after reviewing Wash, not intimidated at Neb, did well. I have it Wash 38-14. Really, hopefully I am wrong,just doesn't feel good.
