I am pretty sure it was Ball State and not Bowling Green that the Aggies defeated in 1993. It was a fun game and a great time to be an Aggie. Nothing greater than this year! Congratulations to Coach Andersen and this great team. Let's all go to Boise and support this team. Congrats to the Cougars and the Utes too. It was a great year to be a football fan in the state of Utah.

Congrats USU.

Huge season this year, and I would bet they keep improving.

Might be a nice Christmas Gift for my eighty-year-old-father to be able to travel and see USU (where he graduated college), and both Utah and BYU (where he recieved Masters' Degrees) play.

He's a huge fan of all three schools.

Congrats to all three schools, players and staff!

Add my congratulations to all three schools as well. Especially happy for USU and coach Andersen. Both USU and Utah will probably be playing bowl opponents with better records thus a chance to "prove" something as well. Best wishes to all three schools.

Yes, congratulations to all three schools. Veritas, I hope you can arrange for your father to be at all three.

The last sentence of the article reads: "WAC champion Louisiana Tech is likely headed to the Poinsettia Bowl in San Diego." I submit that it is indeed very likely as LA Tech accepted the Poinsettia Bowl bid on Saturday.

"I submit that it is indeed very likely as LA Tech accepted the Poinsettia Bowl bid on Saturday" What do you expect on a Mike Sorense article? Timely information?

The Cougars need at least one quality win this season against a team with a winning record.

Go Aggies!

Guess we have to wait until Monday to have the picture painted crystal HD clear don't we? LOL... Aye Aye Aye! The suspense! GO UCLA!!!! Everyone in Utah should want UCLA to beat Oregon on Friday night. Especially those that recognize it is the best way for MAACO to come knocking loudly on the hill. LOL

What would the scenario be if ucla did somehow pull off the upset? It would make one more pac12 team (ucla) bowl eligible and they team would be in the rose bowl. I think Stanford will be in a bcs bowl so oregon, with 3 losses, would be knocked out of the bcs bowl picture but would definately be the 1st choice for non bcs bowls of the pac12 teams. This would actually knock every other pac12 team down one bowl so whatever bowl it is utah will be picked for would drop one.

Of course I doubt ucla will win so it doesn't really matter but it is interesting to consider. Also I really don't see how any of those bowls are really all that much different, yea I know the payouts bigger but as a fan who really cares, the only thin that really matters to a fan is the location. I'll stick with my opinion that utah "fans" will be better served going someplace other than el paso which is a true stye, a trip to san diego would seem much nicer to me.

Not your best post. In fact, this one is boring.

Go Aggies!"

That quality win would not be USU. USU will still be lucky to have a winning season with two games left on the road.

USU has I think one bowl win in its history. Pretty bad program.

All 3 teams have a shot at winning, and Utah and BYU will have the best opponents.

Congratulations Utes and Aggies.

Well the ncaa granted ucla a bowl waiver so even if they lose they are still going to be bowl eligible. I would think in that scenario ucal would be the last choice among pac12 schools for a bowl game. The more interesting one is if ucal actually manages to win and is in the bcs. I must admit I'd love to see that and the ensuing fall out from it.

Congratulations Cougars and Aggies!

Congrats to all three teams, coaches and staffs. Although, none will go down as awesome seasons, any season of bowl eligibilty cannot constitute a bad season, unless you were picked as a top-5 team.

Go Utes!
