That was one of the ugliest games I have ever seen.

Utah was lucky that Pitt has no offense.

I do give Utah's D credit.

They get the W.

Utah better find some kind of offense or they won't be going bowling....

Two thoughts: Ugly, but we'll take the win. Let us all speak kind words to each other

re: jackoffrus

you might want to check the computer rankings. We don't care what you think. Congrats on being in the WAC.


Haha how does that make sense in your mind comparing records with teams that have vastly different schedules. If you implanted even the worst of all those schools into the WAC or MWC, they would come out with records like Utah had been putting up the last 7 or 8 years. That's the thing with power conferences, all of the not-top teams' records are going to be worse because they had to play all the top teams, which is why the top teams have good records. If it was an across-the-board strong conference, they would all beat each other and all end up with 8-win seasons, in which case you would say the conference is terrible. I guess haters gonna hate.

Best Utes defense showing ever seen...

Whoa cowboy, don't get carried away there.

Good win, even though Pitt isn't a great team. Great composure.


@jarka rus
Your obsession for Utah is blinding you from the facts so let me help you out. Look at the strength of schedule for both of the teams you are comparing. For example, Arizona has played Okie St, Oregon, and Stanford. Idaho has played Texas
A&M at that's pretty much it. See the difference?


Tom in CA, and unfortunately it was the team you love to hate. The team that dominated yours and dominated the offensive and defensive sides of the ball today.

Congratulations, Utah. Good luck the balance of the season!


Way to go Utah........gritty defense! You embarrassed Pitt. They had a couple lucky plays, but Utah'e D is not like sorry BYU.......slow as heck. Goooooooooo OSU tonight!

Utes got their first "W" against a BCS conference team as a BCS conference team.

Congrats to the team to getting it on the road.

All that will appear in the record book years from now is the "W".

Enjoy it and get ready for next week.


ESPN talking head apologizing to the viewers for the game (after the game) was a lame comment. Give respect to the kids that put on the pad. Sometimes you win ugly. We as fans get spoiled always looking for the perfect game.

The offense would have the ball more and gain a lot more yardage if it wasn't for that pesky defense that keeps scoring and then giving the ball back to the other team.

Way to go Utah! Great defensive play. You really shut down Ray Graham. You completely shut Pitt out of the end zone. The Offense showed it can move the ball and get into the red zone. Need to work on getting touchdowns instead of relying on field goals. Special teams needs a lot of work, but Peterson went 4/4. GO UTES!


Wouldn't it be sweet if we end up with John White IV's 171 yards rushing taking conference offensive POTW, Derrick Shelby's 1.5 sacks and INT return for TD conference defensive POTW and Coleman Petersen's 4 FGs and 2 EPs in the gusting wind as conference special teams POTW?

Re: jarka-rus

Let me guess:

Idaho 1-5 = Philadelphia Eagles 1-4
Hawaii 3-4 = Chicago Bears 2-3
San Jose 3-3 = Houstan Texans
Idaho State 2-4 = New York Jets 2-3
New Mexico State 2-3 = Atlanta Falcons 2-3

Ugly? That is seriously the worst football team I have ever seen in Pitt, I believe UNLV Would have won that game that is how bad Pitt is. Ute fan you and your team should be embarrassed. utah football lol.

Even pathetic BYU could have beaten that Pitt team lol. Thanks for telling Utah fans how they should feel lol. The Utah defense should be embarrassed for letting up 0 points lol. BYU football schedule lol. Is that too many lols?
