I've said it before and I'll say it again. Utah will win the Pac 12 south division. If we beat Arizona State we would then control our fate. Arizona State has the misfortune of playing Oregon. That would be 2 losses for both Utah and Ariziona. We would hold the tiebreaker over Ariziona State and a clear path to play Oregon in the Pac 12 championship game.

Chris....Chris time to wake-up. Chris Chris its time for school. And if you are not sleeping then you are ignoring the facts. If you did not like the baptism into the PAC12 you got from the Dawgs then you will hate the game on Saturday vs the Devils. There is no clear path for the Utes to the PAC12 South Title period dot. Utes still have scheduled losses which are yet to occur against Cal, Oregon State (a resurgent Beavers squad at that) and UCLA. Oh and an angry Arizona team in Tucson.....not good odds at all. "If we beat Arizona State we would control our own fate" that might work on a hallmark greeting card, but its far from the truth. But I do agree with your sentiments on Oregon as they will run the PAC12 table again.....unfortunately they will most likely embarrass the PAC12 again with the miss-match vs a SEC team.

Your looking through Crimson colored glasses....always have been! That's a mighty big IF for this weeks game! Don't count on a loss in the Oregon game either....

Go Trojans!!!

Chris B,

I am a Utah fan and can confidently say that Utah will NOT win the PAC-12 South. With a D2 QB, they will lose by 30, maybe more, this Saturday. ASU has every reason in the world to be motivated for this game and will show up looking for blood. ASU soundly beat Washington at Washington last year and is a better team this year.

ASU 44 Utah 13

Duckhunter Hunter,

Kindly do not come to the game Saturday. One you are wrong. And two that is the wrong attitude.

I will remind you(and all BYU fans) for the rest of the year about me being right about this Saturday.

Utah 30
Arizona State 14

Mark it Down!

I think Chow and Kyle will draw up 3-4 trick plays during the game to keep the defensive out of their comfort zone. If we win the turnover battle, we win this game. And I dont think Hayes will be put in many situations to turn it over. It will be a running game mixed with safe passes and trick plays.

Time for the Utes to stop talking about the PAC 12 and start competing in the PAC 12. I want to see a team that is more focused on their opponent than which color combination they are going to wear. Defense needs to play out of their heads for us to be in this game and I hope they do. But I have very little confidence in out tiny, slow LBs. I am hoping for a 10-7 Utah win. Maybe hoping too much after what I saw last weekend.

ASU is on top. Utah is far below. Utah will see nothing but the bottom of ASU's cleats as they get stomped this Saturday. Your prediction makes it all the more likely.

Vontaze is going to have a hay-day. Nothing against U, he just does that EVERY week.

Chris b is the most wonderful prognosticator on the D-news and he is hardly ever wrong so mark it down

Here's hoping all the Utes realize how big a game this is. This game means the difference between still having a shot at the South Division Title and simply playing for a lower level bowl game. We're only 3 point underdogs. We've been in worse spots before and gutted it out. Time to dig deep Utes.

Well we all recall how well Crissy's prediction of last year's Vegas Bowl turned out. He will disappear for a while after the Utes lose again, but he'll be back, loony as ever.

Fallon, NV

Hey Ute fan, care for a rematch in the Armed Forces Bowl? Oh wait, U will have to get bowl eligible first. Long shot at that.


Wardu, Utah would dominate BYU again if they played. BYU is on the same level as Utah State. Have fun barely squeaking by San Jose State this week.

Chris B is over-the-top, often embarrassing to the rest of us Utes, and not very accurate in his predictions. But boy he nailed the rivalry game this season!

Heber, Utah

@wiley old school- ya, but even a blind squirrel finds a nut once in a while!

I'll admit it, we're in trouble. Not having a viable backup is really dumb. I wish there were trades in college football, even Lark would be a step up from Hays

Fallon, NV

ClassyUte - I'll take that as a no, you are afraid you might not have 7 turnovers given to U and might have to earn a win, like you did at USC and Washington? You're on. Concentrate on getting bowl eligible and we'll talk. I think a rematch would be epic. Neutral field? Playing for pride. We all saw how U worked Boise last year in the the Vegas Bowl. Pathetic.

This is hilarious seeing Ute fans discuss this game.

I'll get the morgue ready for the post mortem. I can see the D-News headline with the Ute obituary already.

West Jordan, UT

Vontaze for President.
