why are Boise State fans posting on this link? Yeah, you got lucky against a
very good Oklahoma team a few years ago (and i loved watching the game, glad you
won)...So, how did your words from 2:10 p.m. Nov. 19, 2008 taste?
since you had to eat them? look like the 12-0 Utes embarrassed the Cougs and
you'd have lost even worse. The Cougs are clearly better than your SmurfsMaybe you can enter a better conference someday and then talk about
being a good team
Turnovers | 11:14 a.m. Nov. 19, 2008 were the difference in the BYU
vs TCU game+3 TCUwere the difference in the TCU vs Utah
game+2 Utahwill be the difference in the Utah vs BYU game+2 ??? will win HAHA! Try +6 Utah goes to the BCS and Max Hall
gets into the Hall of Lame! Utah 54-33-4 all time vs. TDS... looks like the
Cougs need 21 more wins to even catch up! it's pretty obvious who is the better
Probably because the secondary doesn't do enough work in a game to get them
dirty.... Unfortunately for BYU fans sometimes. :)
Question: Why does the Cougar secondary have no scratches or marks of any kind
on their helments? Do they get new ones for each game? or do they simple
Can we all just be realistic here? Forrest just tells it like it is....Can BYU
win Saturday? Certainly, is it likely, no...but that is why the games are
played...turnovers, injuries, WEATHER, all kinds of intangibles, impact any
game. I love Forrest, he did some amazing things in his life, and the movie was
great!!! Give the guy a break, and BE REALISTIC!!! Go Cougs, play like you did
against UCLA, don't turn the ball over, and get 1-2 takeaways yourself, and
victory is yours!!!
It will be a great game. I expect the score to be closer to the 2005 & 2006
games than 2007s. BYU 31 Utah 30
A. They would never hit the uprights on a game winning field goal.B.
They would never let a tight end scramble to get wide open in the end zone with
time running out.C. They would never allow a receiver to get open on
a fourth and 18 at the end o####ame.Sorry to rain on the Cougar
parade, but not a snowballs chance in Rice Eccles Stadium of pulling one of
these out :)
doesn't win, PERIOD!! dn, why do you not exercise your beliefs in allowing
others' posts to be put through?
team deserves to make the BCS. I am a ute fan, and just been reading some byu
fans saying if they win they deserve a shot at the BCS. Well, maybe you should
have been giving your team a pep talk before they went and got worked over by
TCU (whom the utes beat). By your logic even if the utes lose, as long as they
don't lose by more than 25 (like byu did to TCU), then then the utes should
still be recieving that bid to one of the bcs games. Get over yourselves and
realize that if for some reason byu does win, none of us are going.
Really conflicted. I spoke with a true football expert on Monday. He said he
does not see Utah winning this game. Half my Cougar friends say they think it
will be a close game but Utah will win. (They obviously are not 'true' fans!)
Half my Cougar friends say BYU wins going away...not close again.Then I speak with my Ute friends (yes, I have many) and half of them say they
are really worried...not sure Utah can pull off the win. It seems like the other
half (OK, maybe a little more than half) say Utah wins the game.Honestly. The variable seems to be the Vegas friend and football
expert...he doesn't see Utah being able to put all the pieces together to pull
out the win. I agree. But IF they do (putting all the pieces
together), Utah wins going away. If they can't, they lose. The problem I see
with the true Ute fan is that they have watched their team all year come up
short in putting together all the pieces...two games @ 13-10 are most
demonstrative of that fact. When the clock ticks 00:00 I will
acknowledge the winner; Until then...Cougs by 11!
The kittens actually believe they're going to win this game.
"Assume and assess where the world is" blah blah blah....I think Bronco has
completely lost touch with reality. He just makes up stuff as he goes. Hey
Bronco, Why don't you try firing up your team instead of lulling them to sleep
by spouting off all this monotone "quest for perfection" BS. A guy named LaVelle
did pretty well without any of this psycological mumbo jumbo. Look into it.
Nice post. What in the world are talking about?
You ask an interesting question. I remember that same statement made by
Michigan before they played BYU in the 1984 Holiday Bowl. That is, if Michigan
beats BYU, shouldn't they (Michigan) be the national champs? The
answer of course was a resounding "NO!" I'm sure the same applies to Saturday's
game. Nice try, though.
"RE: Pink UTES? | 1:53 p.m. Nov. 19, 2008 You mean like the competition
you faced in the WAC?!?Its like me going to Big-10 and talking
smack, as Sarah Palin would say, "Thanks but no thanks!""Before you
talk smack about the Cougars, just remember that your Utes played the same
"weak" teams and all you guys could muster was mediocrity, at best.Go Cougars!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Having seen the emotional impact on players this game has, and realizing what
the ranking of each team is, they could be ranked 5th and 95th and it wouldn't
matter. When it's this game, numbers all go out the window.Since
there is no way to really call this game, I'd rather focus on which players.
For Utah, I think the two players who will make the difference if Utah wins will
be Kruger and Castill who will make those one or two big plays. For BYU I think
Michael Reed and Jan Jorganson will come up the biggest couple of plays of the
game.Anybody who thinks they can call this game is nuts.
Utah fans who accuse BYU fans of being arrogant, and then act like a win against
a 10-1, 16th-ranked arch-rival is a foregone conclusion.BYU has lost
one game, on the road, to the same team that Utah was lucky to beat at home.Utah has a great defense, but an erratic offense.BYU has a
great offense, but an erratic defense.Special teams are both good;
Sakoda gets the headlines, but BYU is solid and has been very good at blocking
kicks this season.Both teams are heavily penalized, which is a
meaningless stat anyway, since half of the 20 most penalized teams are ranked in
the Top 25.Utah has improved, but BYU has been very good at causing
turnovers this year.The game will be hard fought and could go either
way. It'll likely turn out just like the last three games, with one or two plays
-- a fumble, an interception, a great run, a broken coverage, a great reception
-- being the difference.Hopefully, the officials won't have any
bearing on the outcome, and the team that plays the best, wins!
BSU beat #15 Oklahoma. You talk like they were rated higher that BSU that
year.That would be like Utah comparing Pittsburgh to their NC team
with Tony Dorsett.Keep staring at the blue turf and say, "I hope BYU
wins, I hope BYU wins, I hope BYU wins".You have the same problem
the CUBERS have. The only quality win you have is over average Oregon.Yeh, their ranked now, but that's because of theway the crappy ACC and
Big East keep killing each other off.The Truth:Utah has never lossed when favored(LVLine Utes-4), playing at home (oh yeah)
and ranked (#7).I'm pretty sure that's the state of affairs at this
time.Cubers: Get ready to get stomped. Utah by 5.Pony
Boyz: Get used to the pangs of discontent as you play again on the frozen blue
tundra of December in Boise.Your opponent: The first runner up
choice to the Turque Bowl. Gobble, Gobble, Gobble.
Utah only has 3 wins against teams above .500 in FBS, all of which they
struggled against and had to come from behind to win. How is that SO much
better than BYU's 1 convincing win? Also, Utah's D has not been challenged in
the passing game yet. BYU is ranked 7th is pass offense, the next biggest
challenge they had was against OSU who is 27th in pass offense)! We will see
how they handle this on Saturday.
In the THREE years, we have been sold a UTE defense that's much better than
BYU's...even when BYU was statistically better by almost every NCAA measure (06
& 07). NCAA measures are irrelavent because different styles produce
different results in many categories... but one stat that counts most is
scoreing defense. BACK to the point! UTAH's vaunted defense is good
and for three seasons I've told myself that. Then I remember in
2005 and 2006 games BYU was oh so dang close to just busting open early double
digit leads on UTAH. Wierd games that could have easily been BYU Blowouts.
Momentum changes are so important. Even last year, BYU kept moving the ball
between the 20's and then finding ways to shoot themselves in the foot. My point is, if BYU's offense shows up and plays error free, they will
score plenty. QUESTIONS then? UTAH's offense against BYU's lately pourous
defense? Which Brian Johnson will show up? I want to say UTAH
should win this game handily. But I haven'tforgotten how BYU put it all together
against UCLA. That may ALSO happen again!
It is really humorous when people try to compare seasons that two teams have.
Even if they play a similar schedule. Both BYU and Utah have played a similar
schedule but come on. You can't tell me that playing TCU in Dallas is a the
same as playing them at home in Salt Lake City. When you see that Utah barely
beat TCU on it's home field in the last minutes, you have to think Utah would
have lost in Dallas also. Then to think that Oregon State would have beat the
Utes on Utahs home field, except for a gift second chance due to a penalty.
Remember, BYU had all three of the competing schools on the road. Utah has had
TCU and BYU at home. BYU has had TCU, AF, and UTAH all on the road. Neither
school has had a very good out of conference schedule. At the beginning it
sounded OK, but both teams havent had anything to beat there chest about. Yes
Utes, Michigan looked anything but stellar, now that we see how tough thery
REALLY are. Same with Washington for BYU.
As a Ute alumnist and fan, I predict that Utah will beat BYU 31 -28, if or no
other reason other than that they are at home and I have been increasing
impressed with the MUSS how they have energized the Utes in close games. The
question is how much I would bet to back up that prediction. Of the
Utah games I watched all but the USU, Weber and Colorado State games. Of the
BYU games I watched most or all of their games against UCLA, Wyoming, New
Mexico, TCU and Colorado State. I watched both win at AFA. Ive
not seen either demonstrate their A-game against a worthy opponent, and both
have further demonstrated more reasons why they could lose the game rather than
win it on Saturday. Both are somewhat but not entirely over-rated, and both
will have a hard time dominating if not winning on Saturday. But
heres hoping they bring their best games, so win or lose no excuses.So Ill bet dinner and movie that the Utes win but admittedly thats not saying
Although I love TRUE COUGAR's prediction, i gotta say that we cannot get caught
up like Utah fans who think that just because Utah squeaked out a victory at
home against TCU, that all of the sudden that equals a win against BYU! Utah
has looked vulnerable too in many games. Remember RED Blood, your utes has to
come from behind in the 4th to win at Air force...a team that BYU did not have
such problems with.
First how dumb are you??????? How can you say BYU is a physical team when it
gave up over 350 yards rushing against the air force academy when Utah gave up
only 54 yards? Why compare the New Mexico game, when TCU was the better game?
Also Air force was a good game to compare and you have really no clue- you never
played the game or if you did it was during the intermurals at BYU. Dude you say
that BYU is physcal--LOL--Utah will put pressure on Maxi Pad like TCU did-
will get their chance to prove themselves when they meet the Utes in the
Poinsettia Bowl on December 23rd.At least it'll be warmer than the
frozen blue turf.
"BYU only has one win against a team with a winning record."Make
that THREE after Saturday, and counting; but what's really important is BYU
beating...-an undefeated-Top Ten team-on the road-and, it's Utah!
the question is...can byu's amazing offense pick apart utah's amazing
defense or can byu's crappy defense hold off utah's crappy offense. Tcu had a
good offense and even a better defense, hence the byu loss. Both teams have
significant weaknesses that can be exploited if the other team can execute.
Hopefully both teams will show up and give us a show.
As I recall we slammed down the hammer on you in your house a couple of years
ago AND defeated Oklahoma. What have the pinkish utes done but beat a less than
mediocre team in their BCS game!You'll be crying after Sat cause BYU
will win and the Broncos will go BCS busting AGAIN!Go Broncos!!
You are up in the night!!! You can't compare that any more than BYU-TCU and
look how that turned out!
Real CLose GameBYU only has one win against a team with a winning record.
At least Utah is beating teams, who cares by how much.Objective
Sports FanUtah at UNM, UNM at BYU. Same as TCU games (TCU at Utah, BYU at
TCU)so that game isn't a good indicator either by logic given by other wY fans.
Plus Weber State could beat UCLA and the other crappy teams BYU barely beat(see
UNLV,CSU). I don't know if Y fans are too arrogant to notice but Weber is
ranked and has a really good team.All that said, the game will be
close. This is not the 04 utes that destroyed everyone they played, and this
game is huge for both teams, even though BYU players act like it is any other
game. Should be a great game no matter who win (hopefully tthe Utes).
BYU can justify predicting a win, the same way Utah fans justified predicting
wins over the last two years. In a rivalry the team that converts when it counts
is the team that will win, though. If BYU has the ball last, I predict BYU will
You mean like the competition you faced in the WAC?!?Its like
me going to Big-10 and talking smack, as Sarah Palin would say, "Thanks but no
You are right BYU-TCU does not matter its how you're playing latly that counts.
So DREAM ON if you think on the road Y will score 38 on the Utes D,
a D that is allowing 11.4 points the last five games. What about Y lets see try
29 per game in the last five.
How can BYU fans justify predicting a win? Well, may because they
are 10-1 and nationally ranked. Maybe because they are 32-5 over the last three
years. Maybe because they are the defending MWC champions. Maybe because they
have seen their team pull out two tough wins and Utah choke the last two years?
Maybe it's because they have a great offense. Maybe it's because they've been
watching their school play extremely well and get lots of national recognition
over the past 30 years. Maybe because this is their biggest rivalry game and
they are pumped. As a Ute fan, Anonymous, you can be confident in
your team and predict a win. No question. But to look at a 10-1 BYU vs. 11-0
Utah game and say there is no logical reason that a BYU fan can predict a win on
Saturday in naive. They are both great teams and both could win this game.
"If Utah does win they deserve to go to a BCS game because they will have beat
some very good team."Yes you are right TCU is a good team with a
great defence. I can't see a team allowing an average 24+ points in the last
few games to beat a defence allowing 11.Utes 41-21
Saturday, everybody begins at 0-0. Strap it up and see who wins. We'll see who's
the last team standing.Good luck boys!

BYU secondary is bringing their pillows, so everyone watch out!!
wow, I didn't think that 10 year olds were allowed to post during school. but
seriously how do BYU fans justify a win? Utah has a better defense, BYU has a
better offense, but they have a terrible defense(ie the csu and unlv games)
I'm a diehard BYU fan, have been for 40-something years. In principle I don't
like Utah much, never have, generally refer to them jokingly as Satan's Red
Children from the North. But here we have an amazing game, one that's being
talked about from coast to coast. Both are really good teams; any idiot on
either side has to admit that. I know we love to do the rivalry thing but each
year it seems to get more bitter, more dripping with hatred. I'm starting to not
like it. Of course, asking both sides to dial it back a bit is fruitless but I
appeal to the saner, more mature among you to realize it IS just a game. It
doesn't reflect on the goodness of either school or its fans, although those
fans' behavior definitely does. I hope neither side's fans embarrasses its
school. I don't believe either team will.
Sprinkled in are a few BLOWOUTS, and this also will be one.
History says this game will be close. I like History
Getting to the BCS by winning the game for Utah will be great, as far as money
goes. But they'll play an SEC, Big 12, or PAC 10 (i.e., USC in the Fiesta) team
in the BCS. So winning will give Utah local bragging rights and a sweet wad of
cash, but the big reward will be a good old fashioned and embarrassing butt
kicking on national TV at the hands of Alabama, Florida, Texas, Oklahoma, or
USC. The same would (will) happen if Boise or BYU or Ball State made it to the
Utes will be exposed for the Fraud of a team that they are on Saturday!Ute fans Drool, and Cougars Rule!!!
I want BYU to win, but I really don't think it's going to happen this year. It
might be a close game, but I'm not banking on that either.
Utah's toughest games have all been decided by 7 points or less. Most of them 3
points or less.Michigan by 2Oregon State by 3New Mexico by
3TCU by 3Air Force by 7(scored with 58 seconds to take lead)Based on this season Utah has not blown out good teams. Against its five
toughest opponents Utah has won by a combined 18 points. So to think that Utah
will just roll over BYU by 24 is rediculous. The BYU/TCU game has no effect in
this BYU/Utah. Based on Utah's performance against "good" teams even though only
3 of the 5 have winning records, Utah does not blowout opponents.BYU
OK--I don't care about BCS money or bowls...I don't care about state
representation...I want my BRAGGING RIGHTS...I want the UTES to eat HUMBLE PIE
three years in a row...The cougars will take the championship back this saturday
and I can't wait! GO BYU!
BYU vs AF = 14-point BYU win. Utah vs AF = phew, barely survived.BYU
vs NM = 18-point BYU win. Utah vs CSU = phew, barely survived another one.What it really means for this Saturday: nothing, absolutely
nothing!BYU and Utah both have very good teams; and both have
weaknesses; both have survived close games this season; and both are fully
capable of winning this Saturday.-1 turnover for either team will be
difficult to overcome-2 turnovers for either team means certain
I love the comment from "True Cougar." UCLA is a horrible team and that is the
only reason BYU played well against them. BYU has looked awfully vunerable the
past few games and they are going to get pounded by the Utes. BYU needed all
that it could get in their wins over UNLV and CSU, while those were teams that
the UTES handeled with ease. Not to mention that the last time BYU faced a
defense that was as good as the UTES (aka TCU) they imploded. The UTES have way
to much speed, and their defense will shut down the cougars. On the other side
of the ball, BYU's defense is pretty pathetic and the UTES will run and throw
all over them. This is going to be a good game, but don't expect it to be as
close as everyone thinks. UTAH-35 byu-17BCS HERE WE COME
AGAIN.....GO UTES-oh and note to mendenhall, your "quest" idea was a joke
Ute fans are generally obnoxious, but on the other hand so are we. Its
bragging rights once again. Cudos to the utes if they win. I don't do this ever,
but I decided this year I am going to change my attitude. I will support the
Utes in the BCS. Why? because its for the good of the mtn. west. We need to be
recognized as a power. I hope the uts win. I am not conceding we are going to
lose saturday though. Anything can happen in a rivalry game. Gordon Monson does
say Hall is the better quaterback that won't win, but then again thats why we
play the game.
The best indication of who will win can be determined by how both teams did
against New Mexico. New Mexico's physical style of play is very similiar to
BYU's.BYU beat New Mexico 21-3 and Utah beat
New Mexico 13-10.I think BYU will win by 11 points. 24-13. Louie
will kick 2 field goals and the Utes will only manage 1 touchdown.I
think how BYU played at TCU is a factor, but that was a short week and they
didn't come ready to play.The other factor is how could Utah let
Weber state score 21 points against them. Even if it was at the end vs. the 2nd
team defense. In a rivalry game anything can happen but the New
Mexico game analysis is the key here.My .02.
Monopolization of this game by the MTN results in losses by both teams. This
game could have brought national recognition to the MWC, but instead it will
line Craig T's pockets. This game should be shown on ESPN's game day.
By spilling just a bit of Clorox needed to clean out the UTEs' mouths before the
game their jerseys would be girlish pink - just like their team which will lose
badly.BIG BOISE FAN!
were the difference in the TCU vs Oklahoma game+4 Oklahomawere
the difference in the BYU vs TCU game+3 TCUwere the difference
in the TCU vs Utah game+2 Utahwill be the difference in the
Utah vs BYU game+2 ??? will win
Your logic is not good, Utah vs NM barely wonUtah vs Weber only won
by 16Your games have been close too, so hush.
Utah vs CSU = Blowout. BYU vs. CSU = Phew, barely got out of town with a win.
Utah vs. UNVL = Blowout. BYU vs. UNLV = almost went to overtime.What does this mean come Saturday? On the surface nothing. What can we
take from these games though? Well, Utah is fully capable of taking just as
much advantage of BYU's defense as either UNLV or CSU. Add to that the fact
Utah's defense is much better than either of those other teams and BYU will have
to be near perfect on offense to pull this one out. More than one BYU turnover
and the Cougars won't be close enough for a last minute scoring drive to matter.
How can you be a diehard BYU fan and think we are going to lose? That seems
like a paradoxical statement, especially considering the caliber of our offense,
and the way our team has recently played. I'm expecting BYU to come out like
they did against UCLA. Of course, Utah is a much better team than UCLA, but
they couldn't beat us if we execute the way we did against UCLA. We're going to
come out fired up and ready to prove ourselves just like we did against UCLA.
Our defense may not be top tier, but they are good enough to stop Brian Johnson
and the funky bunch. My prediction: BYU 34 Utah 13 ...you laugh, but
we'll see who's laughing on Saturday.
Don't expect this one to be close at all. The media is pumping for a story. BYU
has already proven they are the inferior team. I look to see Utah take an early
lead and then by the half-a blow out. This will be a repeat of the TCU game
only with a higher point spread. The final score will be Utah 47; BYU 3 (or
something close). The Utes are REDy for this one!! YOU know it. BYU just can't
compete. COUNT ON IT!!
Wait a second, your leader just said that the "Quest" was not just about
football, so your comments are incorrect. I don't know which
comment in this article and subsequent blog is more unbelievable. 1)That the
"Quest" really wasn't just about football, and it was taken out of context by
everyone in the world, or 2)That the "Quest" wasn't just about being undefeated
in football and playing in the BCS, but was also a "Quest" for a National
Championship? I love to rag on Preacher Bronco like everyone else, but I have
to give the edge to hootowl. National Championship was your goal! I wonder why
everyone outside of your bubble sees your fan base as arrogant and self
righteous! I'd like to date Jessica Beil and drive a Maserati. There, now my
goals are just a ridiculous as yours.Do us all a favor, including
yourself. Just ahead 25 years from 1984 to 2008 and face reality. Your Cougs
will play in the Vegas Bowl, again. While the Utes will play in the BCS, AGAIN!
All the BYU fans at work I've been talking to keep telling me they're pretty
sure that Utah is going to kill them. Now, I know they may just be bracing
themselves but I am a die-hard Ute fan and I'm scared to death of this game.
Yup! There you go comparing scores against common opponents. UU-TCU played in
SLC, TCU-BYU in Dallas. TCU admits they were gunning for BYU and had practiced
all year to beat BYU... Shame they didn't plan and practice better for Oklahoma.
Beating OU might have put them in the mind set to beat both BYU and UU.But back to comparing scores against common opponents. Why don't you look at
the UU-AFA and BYU AFA games then? Seems to me that BYU had a better score
against the same AFA that UU only beat by one TD. How about BYU
beating UCLA 59-0 while UU pulled off a thriller to beat OSU by a FG with time
run out... Okay, a little Forrest logic and we see that OSU beat
UCLA 34-6, well, if OSU was such a great win and Forrest logic works, then BYU
must be much better by stomping UCLA 59-0 while the same OSU that UU barely beat
in the last seconds won by 28 points over the Bruins?Forget Forrest
logic. Let's just see on Saturday!
You're not a diehard BYU fan; but, your fanhood has died. hard.Cougs will pull it out by 4.If not, I have to record myself singing the
Utah fight song.Have faith in your team!Go Cougs!
The TCU games were alot closer than you might think. The difference in the
games, with both being on Thursday nights,is that BYU was on the road at TCU and
Utah played them at home. Turnovers played a big role as well with BYU turning
the ball over 4 times to TCU's 1. Utah had 1 turnover to TCU's 2. TCU mistakes
cost themselves at least 12 pts against Utah.Saturday's game should
be very close and very entertaining.Go Cougars !
I am a diehard BYU fan and always will be...but I am being realistic this week.
My prediction is: Utah-24 BYU-14Good Luck to both teams!
This week's game will be an exception from the "close-game" general rule of the
past several years. You can't have two teams that performed so differently
against TCU be all that close.
Wow! This writter really went out on a limb! Let's see, I predict that the team
with the mosts points at the end of the game will most likely win! Please
this will be a great game on saturday and i will be pulling for my undefeated
utes. i love them and would never hope for the cougars to win but it will be a
close gamea and i will be glad to have seen it. utahs defense is just as fast as
tcu defense and the cougs will have to learn to work around that. but if utah
brings there A game they will pull it out in the end. GO UTES!!!!!!!!!
Kaneshiro for President !!
Congrats to the Utes! They have had a great year but please do not think BYU
will be an easy win for you. If Utah does win they deserve to go to a BCS game
because they will have beat some very good team.If BYU wins do we
not deserve the same reward? If your UTES are so good and we win do not we not
deserve some props? I love smack talk more than anyone but lets be honest
either team can win Saturday. The fans who insult others with stupid comments
about church, state, and personal attacks are ridiculous. Maybe we
could fcus on two great teams giving us all a great game Saturday regardless of
our hate for one another. Go BYU!
I think that most people reporting this are just being realistic, BYU doesn't
have the odds in their favor to get to the BCS bowl this year. I hope that the
Cougars have learned from the TCU game and come prepared for the quick Utah D,
or it will be another ugly game for the boys in blue. It will be NICE though if
BYU can pull out a win in SLC, very tough though. GO COUGARS!!!
13-0 AND a National Championship is Perfection!I know, Utah never
sets such adventurous goals as having an undefeated season and winning a
national championship, so Saturday's loss won't be nearly as hard for Utah fans
to take as the loss to TCU was for BYU fans.
For TDS fans: Another chink in the "Quest" come Saturday boys. Don't fret
though, 10-2 is respectable. But ....12-0 IS Perfection! GO UTES!!!
I keep hearing that Utah is playing for a BCS game and BYU is playing for a
peice of the MWC title. Aren't both teams playing for the MWC title and a BCS
game? I know that Boise State (or a bunch of second place BCS teams) have to
lose for BYU to make it to the BCS, but that means they're two games away. 1)
Beat Utah and 2) Nevada or Fresno (the two next best teams in the WAC) beat
Boise. Done. If Nevada pulls it out (which we'll know by half time of the
rivalry game) then the second half is a BCS play-in. Both teams are then
deservedly playing for a BCS spot.
