I bought my tickets today, and can't wait until Dec. 30.

I think it'll be BYU by 10. Our 4 RB committee will establish the run game, opening up the passing game for Hoffman, Apo, McKay and Falslev.

Our front seven will control Tulsa's run game, forcing them to pass the ball. Our DB's will be tested, but Cougs will come out on top.

Let's go with another 42 point game for BYU vs 31 for Tulsa.

54-10
Salt Lake City, UT

Does Bronco come with subtitles?

No matter the outcome of the game, big mistake taking a week off practice. All other bowl teams use that time to get extra reps for their young players.

Where did you coach?
U'd best worry about your own bowl game. Your D better play very well and score some points cause your O won't win this without a bunch of help.

pawps;
I doubt Bronco is going to give you his shirt but I am sure you can still get one at the bookstore.

I would hope BYU could beat Tulsa by 10 in this bowl game. Tulsa is neither relevent in the world of college football or good. A very mediocre team at best. If you can't win this bowl game with any of the average QB's who are left at the helm, then a top 25 ranking is not deserved.

Interesting: no mentioned about Brandon Doman rumor about OC-Coach for ucla which was mentioned on today article "Can BYU upset No. 6 Baylor" by Jeff Call. Did you mistakenly should be putting it on this article?

If Brandon does leave which I don't think he will, you think Jake Heaps will change his mind staying? But Heaps WILL have to redshirt 2012.

"pawps;

TJ, I didn't say I wanted a Band of Brothers T shirt, I asked; where is it in the picture? Bronco's not wearing it.

Hello, McFly, I know you can buy them in the bookstore, there on sale! No one in their right mind would buy or wear something so silly!

Hang in there Band of Lil Brothers

Pawps I apologize on behalf of cougar fans everywhere for the inept question you were asked... LOL... Everyone with a lick of sense knew what you meant... My first reaction was HOLY HECK where is his t-shirt... He should be in a suit more often!

Gotta say, not only did the utes inherit a cake-walk to the championship game, which was blown epically, but then you leap frog two teams that finished higher in the PAC than you to play a mediocre opponent in a once-storied bowl game. While two better teams, for their effort, get TCU and Boise.

Youd better not blow it this time, or someone will be hanging after the sun bowl, but it won't be anybody in a band of brothers shirt!

Dear 54-10 I'm sure you know this but chose, ironically, not to mention it. The NCAA regulates and monitors very closely the number of days a team can practice (reps as you called it) in preparation for a bowl game. Rest assured each team will get the identical number of practice days. So was there another point you wished to contribute?

I would have loved to see the Utes get Boise State in their bowl game again! Remember what happened last year? In other words, Boise State got the shaft again and Utah got another early Christmas gift and neither team got what they earned!

hahahahahaha @ byu fans. you need other teams to beat utah to talk smack to them now thats probably the funniest thing ive ever seen from a bunch of grown men lol i see that type of stuff in little kids.@mountanman byu got beat by EVERY team this year with a winning record and all you byu fans still say they should be undefeated even tho you never even had a glimpse of a chance against tcu and most definitely UTAH. so keep hanging on to last years losses to try to make the utes look worse than byu, which will never happen and by the way boise lost to a terrible down tcu team lol.. yeah it'll be embarrassing for utah to lose to byu.@y grad.... you wanna talk about cake walk lol just take a look at byus schedule.. now they had a "cake walk" to the national champ. all of you and the byu team said they were gonna win.

This will be a good a bowl game as any of the 500 bowl games out there, byu will win by 17, Tulsa just isn't good enough to compete with this byu team that has confidence and momentum after destroying Hawaii on the road.

The Utesies on the other hand will be wrecked by Ga-Tech by 30, the D has had to win the games this year and been on the field way too much, the injuries are starting to show that fact. And now they will have to defend the option for 80 plays, nope big loss coming. Ute fans will come home ranting 54-10.

Love to burst your Utesie fantasy, but 3 blowouts and a pathetic loss to a 2 win team. THAT is a laugh! hahahahahaha.
Utesies ending schedule is even more cupcake then most WAC teams. Your only credible win is against the Y. You did NOT beat anyone with a winning record in the pitiful Pac.

@jarka-rus hahahahaha your argument is a laugh. you pathetic byu team thumpin their chests about beating TERRIBLE wac opponents. and you beat NOONE with a winning record. yeah the pac is pitiful now that noone in the country wants your team? haha pathetic byu fans will say anything to make their pathetic team look better thats sad. you got blown out on YOUR field by utah hahahahahaha and you got blown out by tcu. you didnt beat a good team this year thats hilarious. noone with a winning record. and actually pitt was a better win than that weak byu game. atleast pit gave us a game.

@jarka-rus "Utesies ending schedule is even more cupcake then most WAC teams. Your only credible win is against the Y. You did NOT beat anyone with a winning record in the pitiful Pac."

hahahahahah boy you need to go back in your little whole. go look at the rankings of the ending schedule for both teams, sos and league and then tell me who had the more cupcake schedule.

its hole by the way,

haha uh-huh Pac-12 dominance we know. Let's hear the argument on why every single Pac team is a force to be reckoned with. Argument #1. Because they play each other?? hahaha. USC, Oregon and Stanford are the ONLY legit teams and every one knows it. The supposed PAC south division juggernaut got destroyed by USC 50-0, are you kidding me?? And you lost to a 2 win team at HOME!!!! Now you claim a 6-6 Pitt team to be some quality team, pssh. okay. If that's so then we can make a claim for several teams on buy's schedule who are quality opponents.
