With a win today, the Pac 12 chamionship game and Rose Bowl are very much in play because UCLA beat ASU last week!

Get er done Utes!

Salt Lake City, UT

Very much in play is not a phrase I would use to describe "Utah wins out and Arizona State loses out as well as UCLA dropping another game after this one assuming this one even ends in a Utah win". we're not going to the PAC-12 championship or the Rose Bowl. What we are going to get is a utah team that despite not having Wynn will most likely have either a 4-5 or 5-4 conference record at the end of the season. That seems good enough.

@Lifelong Ute

Uh...yeah. The New Mexico bowl is probably more at play for Utah at this point than the Rose Bowl.

The snow should be a big advantage for Utah against the coastal UCLA though UCLA relies more on the run so they might not be as harmed by it as they would be otherwise.

Alt, asu would not have to lose out because since ucla has tiebreaker over asu and we will have it over ucla. I don't know how tiebreaker is settled but we just need asu to lose two of three. Utah vs oregon for first ever pac 12 championship! Go utes!

Good one! You had me rolling, I was laughing so hard. For a minute, I thought you were serious. You're either joking, or your real name is Jake Heaps and you've already decided to transfer to the TUN.

The only conference games U will win are Arizona, Oregon State and Colorado is a 50/50. Those three schools would finish in the bottom half of the MWC.

Good call by the refs, head to head contact, watch the replay Utesies, his head hits the other players face mask. Head to head. You tell us Byu fans not to whine about refs.

Saint George, UT

Wow really? Initial contact was shoulder to midsection recievers face mask hits back of defenders helmet. If there was a penalty it would of been hitting defenseless player.


Bet you feel dumb^ No flag!! Clean play by my boy ROWE!!!

Cougfan, game over. Utah wins! Roses are possible!

Providence, UT

Defense is strong, John White IV is a stud, and Hays is adequate. Let's finish this one off Utes! This is starting to get fun.

Cougfan ... A little ironic that you are on here criticizing Utah's strength of schedule. Shouldn't you be tuning in to the kickoff between they y and the Idaho School of Nursing ??


Pick 6.
Wonder if Bruins fold like cheap lawn chairs and Cougars.

"Uh...yeah. The New Mexico bowl is probably more at play for Utah at this point than the Rose Bowl".

Uh...There are not enough teams in the Pac-12 that are bowl eligible for a team to qualify for the New Mexico Bowl. I know you would like to see us there. But, the Sun Bowl or the Las Vegas Bowls are the most likely destinations for the Utes. Not bad for our first year in the Pac-12.

Go Utes!


Good Game Utes! Lovin the PAC 12 schedule, keeps it interesting every week! Lets go fight for the PAC 12 south title!

Sandy, UT

Congratulations to the Utes on a good win against UCLA. They've had much to deal with this season, but have stayed focus. Good job by the coaching staff to help the team adjust to the many challenges that have arisen. Go Utes!

Springville, UT

Wow, could be Las Vegas against TCU or Boise, hopefully Boise for a repeat. It's shaping up for another beat down. That would be funny.

Hays is improving, happy for the kid living his dream as D1 QB.

Salt Lake City, UT

Good win by the Utes. Hayes looks better when he plays within himself and doesn't try to do too much. Handing the ball to John White 30+ times helps too.

Utah oregon pac 12 championship. Mark it down! Asu is going down tonight! Go cougars(washington state)

Layton, Utah

Wow how bad is Arizona? getting worked by the Buffs. Yep Utes schedule is tough. phew. Wazzzoooo the next powerhouse. UCLA is pathetic, 50 penalties, they only have one maybe two plays in their playbook. Roll out or read option dive. Fluke win over ASU.
