Too easy.

I can't wait til we start Pac 12 play so we have a real challenge

Go Utes!

Salt Lake, UT

What's going on aggies?

Sure looks like a Pac 12 against a WAC team here, just like I called!

I told you we would win.

Waiting for you all to tell me I was right...

Go Big Blue!!!
Bountiful, UT

Chris B marked it down. The Aggies will only score 17. Wait, they scored that in the first half. I guess he thought the Aggies would go home at half time?

Go Big Blue!!!

Springville, UT

17-14 at the half and the Ute fans have their heads in their hands.

Syracuse, UT

Utes and their fans thought all they had to do was show up due to being in the PAC 11+u. Aggies are showing u where u belong.....on the bottom of your conference.

"Sure looks like a Pac 12 against a WAC team here, just like I called!"

Unfortunately for U, it's Utah State that looks like a 2013 PAC 12 team; Utah playing the role of a 1960's WAC team, wilting under the pressure of a better team after being gifted a couple of early touchdowns.

Utah's bowl hopes already slipping away in the first 30 minutes of the season.

Go Aggies!

17-14 equals final score of 34-28 - right chrissy??? That would be a respectable score to lose by, however. Just think of it as glass half full.

As soon as game over and utah is 0-1, I want to hear your analysis of the game, and rest of season predictions, chris b.

WAC (MWC) vs PAC 12?

Got to admit. The utes are putting up a better fight than I thought they would.

Salt Lake City, UT

Wow, I expected a lot more from the PAC 12 Ute's; completely dominated by the MWC Aggies in the 1st half:

USU 202 passing, 99 rushing, 301 total
Utah 131 passing, 51 rushing, 182 total

If not for the yellow hankie parade, the Utes would be scoreless.

Go Aggies!

Mcallen, TX

Utes don't have the talent to compete with a WAC team.


17-14 Hurts Don't It?
Springville, UT

Who would have thought that my screen name would have worked for half-time????

It's a double bonus. Awesome!


Aggies ripping the Utes to pieces on first half yardage. Imagine it will be much of the same in the second half.

Go Aggies!

Vallejo, CA

23-14. Can you say beat down??

Pretty tough competing with - let's face it - a WAC team.

Alpine, UT

This is getting fun!

South Jordan, Utah

The best part of this whole thing is, particularly if USU can hold on, that one very "vocal" PAC11 + u fan will surely come down with a severe case of laryngitis! It will be great to have him slither away into the shadows, just like he does every year when the Utes lose.

Keep it up Aggies!

Saint George, UT

The Mighty Mountain West is beating the pac 12. I thought the utes were going to crush the Aggies? I guess the Utes aren't what we thought. Go Utah State!

Salt Lake City, UT

Utah State was a top 25 team last year and has a very capable quarterback. Anyone who thought Utah State wouldn't be a tough opponent for Utah was delusional.

Chris B
Salt Lake City, UT

Utes win!

I was right.

Aggies were wrong


South Jordan, Utah

Good game USU. Doesn't bode well for Utah however. As good as USU is (and I give them all the credit in the world), I suspect USC, UCLA, Oregon and others are going to be another level of competition.

Idaho Falls, ID

Absolutely horrible officiating. Are these clowns from the conference of chumps!

Sitka, AK

Where did all the Utah haters go?
