By the way that Washington state team you keep bagging on is byu's signature win this season.


Uh not quite, I would say that BYU's signature win is either G. Tech or Utah State.

All of these comments crack me up....why doesn't everybody just admit it that both Y and U have had disappointing seasons. Y will go to a bowl on a very weak schedule (good thing for bowl contracts) and I think the U will still make it to a bowl probably at 6-6...not the year anybody expected. The U schedule overall was a stronger schedule but you need to win the games to make them really count....next year with a seasoned quarterback is going to be much better. The Y is getting better as well and I believe they will be much improved next year as well.

Lets wait and compare quality wins in 3 weeks....we could see the U finish at 7-5 if that happens you will certainly have to give the node to the Utes!

Go Utes.......BYU you had better destroy your competition anything less will be a failure.

Idaho vs Colorado?

San Jose ST vs Washington State?

New Mexico State vs Northern Colorado?


Simple, Colorado, Washington State, and Northern Colorado would win.

BTW, Northern Colorado is 3-6.

Hawaii 1-8, Weber State 1-8, Idaho 1-8, and NMS 1-8.

Now please apologize to Northern Colorado fans for making fun of their team.

I am one Cougar willing to admit that Utah has better talent. But, then I can also name 9 12-pack schools with better talent than u. u do have better talent then wazzu and the buffs and should finish just ahead of them in the final standings. In the end, I prefer keeping the results of our season over u'rs.


I agree, BYU would be a cellar dweller playing Utah's PAC-12 schedule, right behind Utah there fighting it out with wazzu and buffs.

Utah 4-5

I apologize to Utah fans for making fun of their team.

Quoted from DN:

The Vandals rank among the worst teams in the FBS in rushing yards (No. 122), scoring offense (No. 123) and points allowed (No. 121).

Wow..... hope you're up to the challenge coogs.

Maybe if you win out this season either Michigan will look at a return game or Northern Colorado will do a home and home with you.

"FYI Utah has 22 players in the nfl, byu has 8,..."

If you don't include the Carolina & Miami rosters, The Utes still have roughly 2x as many!

The Cougars playing their final home football game against a WAC opponent on Saturday at 8:15 p.m., 51 seasons after the WAC was founded, will secure BYU's 8th straight bowl appearance.

Fortunately, BYU fans also have other games to look forward to this weekend:

#2-ranked and #1 seed BYU playing Utah State in the opening round of the NCAA women's soccer tournament Friday at 6 p.m.

BYU men's basketball building their resume for a 7th straight NCAA tournament bid on Friday at 7 p.m.

At least you'll have plenty of time to dwell on spring practice with no more distractions after that exciting game against another 10-loss Colorado team.

Does BYU really deserve a bowl?

Here are BYU's wins, and the team's current record:
Washington State 2-7 (0-6 Pac-12)
Weber State 1-8
Hawaii 1-7 (0-5 MWC)
Utah State 8-2 (4-0 WAC)
Georgia Tech 4-5 (3-3 ACC)

Still to come:
Idaho 1-8 (1-3 WAC)
New Mexico State 1-8 (0-4 WAC)

Uncle Rico,
Slight correction; Idaho is 1-9 overall, no need to go into the SOS and embarass him even further.
Guess he's given up on the football team already.
Sad, I think they deserve better.
