Correction - Ucla is in the drivers seat for the south championship. If they win out, they will face oregon.

Improbable is the right word. Some Ute fans are trying to make it sound like they are a "shoe in" for the championship game and the Rose Bowl. The Utes are improbable for the championship game and a 1,000,000 to 1 shot to go to the Rose Bowl.

CougFan, by "some" I think you just mean Lifelong Ute. Anyone with some common sense realizes that the chances of Arizona State losing out are very slim, but that guy has practically been claiming our third BCS bowl is won and done since the Oregon State game. The rest of us realize that it probably won't happen, but after how this season started, still being mathematically eligible makes you want to tune in and follow it down to the wire. And even then, stopping Oregon would be a tougher task than any Big 10 team that would follow in the Rose Bowl. Very improbable, but it doesn't mean you don't continue to show up and try to beat the odds.

PAC 10.2 Doormat,

Your name implies that you think Utah is at the bottom of the conference. Actually, Colorado, Arizona, and Oregon St. are at the bottom of the conference. I do have one question for you though. If you think Utah is at the bottom of the PAC 12, where do you think byu would be if they were in the PAC 12 after that 54-10 blowout loss to Utah?

Any byu fan who calls the PAC 12 the "PAC 10.2" is simply jealous of Utah.

Lame article. Did lifelong Ute Fan, aka Duckhunter's alter ego write this? You gotta at least wait one more week before this could be relevant.

Stay focused on WSU. Let's see another cougar beatdown!

Magna Ute Fan: I agree with your post completely. All this talk of possibly going to the PAC 12 title game and Rose Bowl is pointless right now. I just don't see ASU losing both their remaining games. Regardless, we just need to win our next two games and let our 8-4 record get us the best bowl game available.

Go Utes!!

I would suggest you do your research before you write an article about the possibilities of going to the Pac championship. Asu could loose one of their final two games and Utah could still potentially go Pac 12 championship. Pac 12 website states if their is a three way tie for first place the last place team in the Bcs standings will be automatically eliminated. Thus, if there is a three way three way tie between Ucla, Utah, Asu, and Asu ends up finishing last in the Bcs standings they would be automatically eliminated. Therefore, the Pac 12 would take the head to head matchup between Ucla and Utah. In this scenario Utah would go to the Pac 12 championship. I do know that they would could potentially consider the south division records among the tied teams. But i do not know in what order, but if thats the case we need Arizona to beat Asu,and Ucla loose one of their final two games. Meaning all three teams would of two losses in the south division.

Yes. Some fans believe things. Even the improbable (see also Tim Tebow making the playoffs, Jake Heaps for Heisman campaign, Coldplay not plagerizing, etc). BUT some haters make wildly off-base predictions, tell us to mark it down, and return the next week for more.
