Mr. Scoresby,
If you're related to somebody in Highland, Utah . . . We need to talk and I can help you lower
the expenses some! This could be a great trip for you. Way to chase the fun times ! ! ! !

If I didn't live in Japan, I'd be there. I hope that lots of cougar fans will go. I'll be watching you all on TV!!!

Can't Wait

See you guys there!!!!

The myth of BYU fans not spending money is just that...a myth. Propagated by the media and yewt fans.

The cougars bring a crowd wherever they go. I can't count the number of "away" games where we outnumber the home crowd.

Should be a great game. Go cougs!

I hope the Cougars hand it to Oklahoma. It would be a great win for them, and for the Mt. West. Go Cougars

Matt in Houston

There are going to be 20,000+. There were about 15,000 at TCU in 2006 and I would say the buzz and commitment from those I know in Texas and otherwise are higher than that TCU game. The BYU fans will certainly be outnumbered, but there will be plenty of us. It'll be intesting to see the interaction between the fanbases, because OU fans can become, at time, shall we say, interesting.

GOOOOOOOOOO COUGARS!

I'm not too sure how the numbers crunch at the end of the day, but 11 of us from Gilbert, AZ will be in Dallas to see our Coug's play with tickets not purchased from the university. If the university sold 15,000, one would think that another 2-3,000 could have been purchased through the Cowboys, and other ticket outlets not reporting to BYU. Dallas may be lucky again, recalling the Kansas State- BYU, New Years Day match in 1997. 23 of us from Gilbert sat will the Wildcat fans, who weren't all that nice or willing to give BYU any credit. With BYU up by 2 TD's a seatmate offered me 3-1 odds on KSU, beliveing his team would roar back and bury the Cougars. After #1, ended any threat, it was very quiet in our section.

i hope the cougs can play respectably. they tend to really stink it up against tough opponents. Follow the yewts example against the tide and take the sooners to the woodshed.

I'm traveling to the game from Seattle, WA. I'll sit side-by-side at the game with my brother who is attending from Tampa, FL. This game is as big as any bowl game the Cougars have played in and ranks right up there with games against opponents like Pitt, Miami, and Texas A&M from the past. It should be a blast! What a great schedule! Follow it up with games against Florida St., TCU, and Utah in Provo - it might be the best and most interesting schedule the Cougars have played.

I'm looking forward to future schedules that include home-and-home series against Northwest opponents Boise St. and Washington.

Nothing wrong with playing against the "big boys" of college football even if you are considered the underdog. The MWC teams were impressive against non-conference foes last year that included Michigan, Alabama, and a big chunk of the PAC-10.

Bet there are closer to 30K

BYU fans in Dallas in September. No matter where they play, they always draw a crowd of local LDS and BYU fans. As SJ described we will never forget the sea of K-State purple going into the Cotton bowl where they outnumbered us by 2-1. BYU fans love their Cougs and support them wherever they go.

By the way our order for five Club level tickets was never filled and we are still desparately looking for at least one or two tix to the game.

I hate the Y

But I really want to see OU go down and boost the credibility of the Mountain West / crush the BCS.

Go Cougs (gulp!)

Dave

I predict there will be 20,000 disappointed Zoobies at this game. I can't believe you actually think you stand a chance against a BCS worthy opponent like Oklahoma.

Dave you're a clown

I know you can get some fans to Arizona but don't even pretend you've got a travelling fanbase as strong as ours. Go BYU.

Dave

How many fans are actually traveling from Utah and how many live in TX? I'm pretty sure it's probably three or four to one on the TX side so don't pretend to think you have a traveling fan base from Provo or from the State of Utah for that matter.

You my friend are the Clown!!

GO BYU

WOULD LOVE TO SEE BYU WIN... BUT REALISTICALLY SPEAKING, OU IS A POWERHOUSE. GOOD LUCK TEAM! YOU'LL NEED IT, ALONG WITH 50 POINTS TO KEEP PACE. HOWEVER, I DO BELEIVE IN MIRACLES TOO...

WIN OR LOSE, I'LL BE ROOTING FOR THE COUGS!

St Denis

Even the most ardent narrow-minded vindictive Utah fan must realize the importance of this game and be rooting for the Cougars to win. At the end of the season they could then say, "We beat the team that beat Oklahoma," or "We only lost to the team that beat nationally-ranked Oklahoma." It heightens the prestige of the conference and both BYU & UofU. If you can't see that, you're cutting off your nose to spite your face.

Y 50, OU 10

Go Cougs. We'll be there rooting for you. Hope Hall is ready, because our success will depend on him seeing the entire field & not becoming so predictable as he was toward the end of last year.

C'mon, clowns are funny. Dave's just a blind hater....
