Sorry fellow Cougs fans, but I think our mighty Cougs come out of tomorrow nights game 2-2. We had almost zero running game against the Utes. How are we going to have one against a BSU defense, especially with Reynolds out. Also, we need a completely healthy Riley-- not a QB w/ a back problem. Come on, Cougs. Please prove me wrong.

On a national level a win here would be big. It would certainly take the sting out of last weeks early Christmas present to Utah. Why Chris Hill would want to end the rivalry game is beyond me. Utah gets up for two games a year; BYU and their bowl game.

Win or lose, these types of games sure are a lot more fun to watch than the weber state variety. Less turnovers and mistakes, and you've got a chance.

Man this is hard. BYU is the better team overall i feel. Mostly due to our defense and the fact that our offense really could be explosive. We just beat ourselves too often. We could have won Saturday against the Utes. But good job by them at keeping us down. Really hope the Cougars i know we could be show up tonight! All their games are winnable. Go COUGS!

If the same offense shows up in Boise that showed up in SLC, it will be ugly. I was hoping the Cougs would have beat the Utes by 20, which would have led me to believe that tonights game would be a good one.

But I think the Broncos are a much better team than the Utes this year, and I'm expecting a double digit loss - unless the offense has an epiphany and figures out how to run the ball and complete 65+% of their passes.

As good as our D is, we'll still need to be over 400 yards of offense to have a chance. Go Cougs!

Yes I do feel BYU is the better overall team. Not saying anything against the Broncos. They.re my second favorite college football team! I just feel that BYU is better overall and once their offense finds itself they can be really good. The offensive line is holding us back right now. Once that gets settled we will be very good! The Cougars can win this one. They have the ability. But I am skeptical

Cougs and Broncos in the matinee to their conference membership together as the Big East goes to a 16-team super-conference inviting Air Force, Army, and BYU to join newest member Navy. With ND doing their partial football alliance with the ACC, the Big East super deal seems all the more plausible, along with a new name such as The National Conference.

Wowser! There is nothing worse than trying to watch a Boise St home game on TV. Blue on Blue. Ridiculous!

I love it! Riley Nelson, WOW he is NOT a D1 QB please Bronco wake up be a coach and not a friend, if we don't get this game and Riley keeps playing I am done until next year. Bronco put Hill or Lark in so we can pass the ball. What a joke this is turning into. 2 TO first half all on Riley. Great wish BYU fans, hope your enjoying this, you wanted him live with it.

One QB (Nelson) can only make bad decisions, while the other (Southwick) makes no decisions. Which team will lose this game more?

How long do you think ESPN will put up with this joke of a game? They are probably looking for a high school game to put in for the second half.

Fire Bronco! This is complete insanity to let Nelson remain on the team, let alone in the game

I hope Bronco realizes he threw the fans, the school, and 104 football players under the bus to avoid breaking his ridiculous promise to Riley.

BYU fans wanted Riley live with it. Hill better be the starter from here on out this sseason is over, nothing else to play for. Give Hill the game time!
