Utah is playing football. On Saturday? 2pm eastern? CBS? In the 2nd oldest bowl game to the Rose? Started in 1935? People are in the stands watching the game? Some people wearing red clothing? Playing an ACC team?

BYU folks said they had a better bowl...on a work day? 12 noon eastern...in a bowl that is 9 years old? Owned by ESPN? Playing a ConfUSA opponent?

I'd fight to have Utah keep the drum and feather if they would get rid of that ridiculous school song. Every time I hear it, it reminds me of being on a merry go round as a kid.

We're we able to afford to get our band and cheer team down to this game? Wow...I figured we would not take them with only 12 fans going to the game??? BYU told me only 12 fans were going but 2 million were going to Ft Worth yesterday?
So confused?

good luck to the Utes today. Hope they come out on top.

No matter how you spin it, it is a bowl game in El Paso on New Years Eve. El Paso. That might as well be a hundred thousand light years from Pasadena and New Years Day.

Also, since when is playing an ACC team in football prestigious? Granted they are probably a bit better than Tulsa, but are you really bragging about this? Without a playoff, Utah's season is just as inconsequential as BYU's or even Utah State's.



I see you are in El Paso at the game. Oh wait.


I hope the second half picks up. That was pretty anemic. GT had a bunch of rushing yards (yawn), but Utah had nothing.

Fallon, NV

Maybe u can hold GT under 400 yds rushing for the game. Three incomplete passes to start the second half? Pathetic. 1-6 on third down? wow. Make that 1-7. Not much O from u.

Franklin, IN

Oh yeah...
I forgot the school down south has determined for the world that fans can only be fans if they travel....

No one can have a favorite team unless you travel to the game... Thanks for reminding me of that Provo rule...

Got it!!!

Hayes just got a touchdown pass(sarcasism all the way)

west jordan, UT

Can we leave Hayes in Elpaso?

West Hills, CA

WOW! GT 14 points in 28 seconds!

Utah already won their bowl game back in September. That was the highlight of their whole year. I'm just waiting for someone to come on here and spout off 54-10.

Guess what. GTech is the 50th ranked team in the country.

What was Tulsa?

26 seconds don't give the utes more credit than they deserve. this is comical.

Could be that the conference of chumps is 0-4 in bowl games this year.

Magna, UT

Conference of chumps?

Was that a typo?

Uh, nope!

Keep playing that annoying fight song every 12 seconds. That will make a big difference. So far it is working wonders.

Average, SE

The Utes will come from behind and win: 31-24.

Mark it down.

I really hope the Utes win (I'm a BYU fan) but things aren't looking good right now.

South Jordan, UT

hayes got another touchdown and again sarcasism here to

Salt Lake City, UT

Star Lotulelei is a beast. He should go pro and use the millions to pay for the rest of his college education. He would be one of two lineman from the state of Utah to be All-Pro.
