Utah will beat usu like the wac team they are.

Yes, usu's season will be over(much like byu's after their first loss)

Meanwhile Utah will be in Rose Bowl contention within last 1-2 games of season

Mark it down

Utah 30
usu 17

Go Utes!

Is usu our rival?


We're posting about them because we play them this week.

After this week, I'll cheer for them just like we cheer for southern Utah and weber state.

Go Utes!

rival or no rival? who cares

all I know is chrisbe wont be posting about weber state non stop and on every article.

maybe because weber state won't dominate the utes media market like USU has done this year so far.

chrisbe we don't want or need you to cheer for USU, that would be a black eye for us to have you on our side, thanks anyway.

The BYU obsession lives on here in these posts. Even when the article is about USU vs Utes.

Sounds like the Utes want this too much and are dwelling on last years loss. USU has a great chance in this game. They will score points because their O-line is better and more experienced. If the U's o-line comes together, they should be solid against USU's d-line but USU's LBs and DBs are excellent. The U will be lucky to score 20 pts tonight. If USU scores more than 20, the odds are in their favor.

Chris B,
Are you wearing your Quest for the Rose Bowl T-shirt? Or the one with the dates the utes have played with each year crossed out? I have marked down your predictions and will remind you when they do not come true!!! Game day is finally here!!!

Go Cougs!!!
Go Utes except tonight and Sept. 21st!!!
Go Aggies beat the running scared Utes!!!

Chris B,

You are arrogant and dismissive of rivals -- calling an MWC team a "WAC" team as an intended insult -- yet we've never seen you post anything of your own athletic accomplishments. Are there any?

BTW, "In contention with 1 or 2 games to go" isn't much of a claim. Half the division will still be in contention at that point. Are you saying Utah "may" be in the top half of the South?

TJ... byu obsession on this post? yours is the only one to mention them.

It doesn't matter if USU is a rival or not. Last years victory exposed a team ill-prepared to play in the PAC 12, just like this years victory by USU will expose a team that didn't take any lesson's from last years game, except to put more PAC 12 logos on everything. The truth is Utah is the PAC 12's new Washington State. Maybe being in the Mountain West wasn't so bad afterall. And I know, I'm about to get a whole raft of "You're jealous" rants and, yes, maybe I am. But I would sooner see my team in the conference it is in with a chance to win, then in a conference it will never win in but joined simply for the money. Enjoy all that extra cash. USU 24 Utah 20.

"Meanwhile Utah will be in Rose Bowl contention within last 1-2 games of season"

After losing to the Aggies, the Utes won't even be in contention for a bowl game.

Where are U going to find 6 wins without a win over Utah State?

Weber St, Washington State and Colorado, IF U manage to sweep them, only gives U three wins.

Oregon St maybe, depends on how good OSU is this year
@BYU loss
UCLA loss
Stanford loss
@Arizona loss
@USC loss
ASU maybe, if DE can conjure some magic versus his old team
Oregon loss

A loss to USU, means the high water mark for Utah is 5-7, more than likely 4-8.

USU 24
Utah 17

Go Aggies!

As much as Utah fans may hate to admit it, your analysis is spot on; a loss to USU could be devastating to Utah's bowl hopes this season.

Southern, UT

Utah State will lose this game. Even with the so called "Best QB in the state". Who hasn't proven himself by the way.

Salt Lake, UT


Intersting that you put the byu game as a loss when Van Noy, Hoffman, and the other byu players of the last 3 years haven't ever beaten Utah.


Utah 8-4


Yes, being in Rose Bowl contention within the last 1-2 games of the season is HUGE deal.

Will byu or usu be able to say that?



What it means is the every game matters for Utah, every game is exciting, and impacts the national football scene.

After byu and usu lose their first game, what are they playing for?

WAC championships?


I love my Pac 12 membership!

You are either naive or deluded. If you think EVERY team that isn't mathematically eliminated with 1-2 games is still in contention, you probably think the 8th seed in the NBA playoffs is a championship contender.

"What it means is the(at) every game matters for Utah, every game is exciting, and impacts the national football scene".

Hahaha...impacts the national scene?! For the elite PAC12 programs, games against Utah are like that gas stop I have to make in Burley Idaho on my way to Oregon. I only stop there because I have to, regardless of whether Burley residents think they have the prettiest river or lava rocks in the nation. It's a nice town to fill my tank on my way to a prettier and more desired location. That's Utah's PAC12 membership in a nutshell...nice place for Oregon and Stanford to fill their tanks getting ready for the real competition.

@Christopher B
Utah State is in the Mountain West Conference now.

Logan, UT


Chuckie hasn't proven himself? Maybe or maybe not, but one thing is for sure: He's proved more in 1.5 seasons than your precious Brad Sorenson did in his entire collegiate career, and he still hasn't hit his ceiling. I almost wish we played SUU again this year so we could thump them for the third time in five years and enjoy a measure of peace from Stang08. But, I suppose beating up on a 5A team would be a hollow win.

Dominated where? Cache Valley only? Okay, no worries there. Put the squeaky cheese down, my friend...!

Chris B and ChristopherB. Obviously one and the same. Posts are nearly identical. Must be nice to have two accounts.

Go Aggies.

Utah 0-1

TJ is right. The obsession is strong. Notice that the very first post takes a swipe at a team that is nowhere mentioned in the article.

Chris B's posts are annoying, even for a Ute fan. I skip over most. Although it's funny how many of you get riled up over them, do you not know that's what he's trying to do? LOL
