Lifelong Ute:I wouldn't say a "good chance". ASU would
have to lose a lot of games vs. a couple of the worst teams in the Pac-12 for
that to happen. Our chances would best be described as "longshot pipe
dream" for 2011. Best you don't get your hopes up, but rather look on the
bright side: the Sun Bowl would be a GREAT bowl game to play our way into. 8-4
would be considered a successful season.But we'll have to beat UCLA
first. GO UTES!!!
@Lifelong UteWhile that would be awesome it's still a big longshot.
If Utah wins out, there's a good chance that UCLA will lose at USC as well so
they'd have the same record in conference as us and we'd beat them in
tiebreaker.ASU though has the tiebreaker over us, so we'd need them
to lose an extra game to be sure, and that means they have to lose out. They
could lose the rivalry game against Arizona, and possibly even lose to Cal, but
Washington St. would have to play the game of their lives to upset ASU.It is still possible though, and considering what the team has been through
this season, being able to even have the conference championship game and even
the Rose Bowl as a long shot makes being in a BCS conference pretty cool. :)
Dres has been a great addition to this team. I'm excited to see how he
progresses with the Utes - I think he will have a great future and has the
ability to become one of Utah's top receivers.This should be a good
game this weekend. I like our chances if Utah can continue to take care of the
ball and win the turn over battle.It would be huge for this program
to get a win against a team with a good record and momentum. I still can't
believe how bad Arizona beat the Bruins. The PAC is good league top to
I like our matchups in this game.UCLA Scoring offense: 9th in

the game will be turnovers for Utah.
Hopefully Anderson and the rest of the Ute receivers will have a great game on
Saturday....along with White IV.
Having Dres in our program is a credit to the coaching staff that can recruit a
kid that is a guaranteed recruit for UCLA. To think that Utah beat them out
while still being in the MWC.Dres is a good kid and is an amazing
receiver. He will be fun to watch the next few years.GO UTES!
Espn points out if we beat ucla there is a good chance at still making rose bowl
because ucla beat asu. I will second mortgage my home to go to the pac 12
championship game and rose bowl!
Great to have Dres on the team. Hopefully he can burn the big-play suseptible
Finish strong! Will receive a decent bowl game and this will be a launching pad
for next year.
