Seriously, Cougars. Caught in a shift and give up a touchdown on the first play. Will BYU fire its Defensive Coordinator if they lose?

This BYU team is not well coached.

Nice job by Apo to get the flag by grabbing his leg like a soccer player after getting hit in the shoulder.

Herriman, UT

That was absolutely, positively, the worst call I have ever seen. It's called football, you know tackle football. I guess maybe ESPN has put the word out, that we need to help BYU in any way possible to justify the miserable contract they signed with the Y a few months ago.

Nice run Riley, but what's with the hair? You obviously haven't been to the Testing Center recently.

Provo, UT

What does Riley's hair have to do with the game. For that matter, why would it cause him trouble with the testing center - it doesn't cover his ears or touch his collar. For that matter, what business is it of yours. This blog is about the game not about your opinions about BYU and its honor code.

This is why I won't ever send any of my family to BYU. Even though he isn't breaking the honor code other people deem it fit to publicly accuse him of it.

USU scores as BYU cannot contain the freshman quarterback on the run. USU isn't intimidated.

does byu think their is a penalty committed on every play against them?

5 touchdowns on 14 red-zone appearances by BYU this year. Maybe it's due to things like, oh, I don't know, two straight pass plays when you have 2nd and two?

Your line ways over 1200 pounds. Add in a tight end or two, and you can push it up over 1500. Line up, push the defense back, and pick up a couple of yards.

If you can't figure that out, fire the offensive coordinator. Stop trying to get cute.


How is it that the hit on Apo not only gets a penalty, but also the USU player gets ejected---Yet when the BYU player hit Utah's Christopher in an even harder helmet-to-helmet hit, nothing is called?

Sometimes BYU's home cooking to too painful to watch.

Dear brandon what game are you watching? apo sat out a couple of plays not a couple of series

Chandler, AZ

@everybody that commented after me. I didn't intent it to be a slam on Riley, but more of a slam on the testing center. My little bro' was often turned away at the testing center for having his hair almost as long as Riley's is.

Back to the game: I'm glad to see BYU is moving the ball on offense. Heaps is still throwing bullets past some of his receivers, but he seams to be settling down a little. The defense seems determined to make up for that early error and have been making a lot of hard hits.

The most impressive player on the field has gotta be Chuckie Keeton.

Logan, Utah

Both teams are playing well, should be a good one...........Go Aggies!
As long as they don't kick out anymore of our players ha ha.......

highland, utah

wow cougars

South Jordan, UT

@ go red

cant blame BYU for the lack of a call it was pac whatever refs

That's the difference between BYU football and BCS football, a BCS football coach would know when to pull a struggling quarterback. Yes, the receivers haven't helped much, but BCS QB's know how to inspire their receivers, Heaps doesn't. If anyone can get this message to Doman or Bronco...tell them to bench Heaps!

A Big Thank You to who ever delivered my message!


Dang! as a Ute fan I do not even feel good about our 44 point win over BYU:( I am starting to get worried about tomorrows game vs Washington now.
