    "Luckily we have the rest of our season to look forward to. Your season ended when you beat BYU (as it always does)."

    I looked it up. u has lost every game after playing BYU the last 4 years and many of those were absolute blowouts. Hilarious! They live for BYU. Totally and utterly pathetic. I'm glad they like us so much and live and breathe everything we do.

    Nope. Not sad here. I've moved on. Luckily we have the rest of our season to look forward to. Your season ended when you beat BYU (as it always does).

    Chris's alter ego Jenny

    Despite Utah's recent head-to-head success, the Utes still lag considerably behind the Cougars in the most significant measuring stick - national rankings:

    AP Top 25 Finishes Lifetime
    BYU 17
    Utah 5

    AP Top 25 Finishes During the Bronco/Kyle era
    Bronco 4
    Kyle 2

    At Utah's lifetime rate of approximately one AP Top 25 finish every 13 years (since 1936), it'll take the Utes another 80 years just to get to double digits, something BYU accomplished in 1991, over 20 years ago.

    For all your talk, U have no walk.

    BYU is 23 of 25.

    Funny, in 2010 the score was 31-16, but BYU scoring at the very end. This time it's 31-14 with usu scoring at the end. usu took out BYU's QB last year and BYU returned the favor. This is why you never gloat about some amazing win or circumstances...it always comes back to bite you.

    USU was a one and done team last year, as I've been saying all along. I've also said that as soon as Chuckie is gone or gets hurt, there goes the team. usu got dominated tonight. Next week won't be pretty either.

    Chuckie is a stud. Bummed he is hurt and likely done for the season. MCL/LCL is the word, and those are season ending injuries.

    "Today, all utes are aggies" Guess that makes you all losers tonight, and ute fans double losers this week.

    "Don't worry USU. You are the better team, even though Van Noy got the pick 6" Getting killed by 17 with a mercy TD at the end?

    "send them back to Provo hanging their heads!" How did that turn out?

    Guys, quit reading CB's material. It makes you look ridiculous!

    "Wow a lot of pathetic and insecure Pac 12 fans on here tonight." Yep, conference weekend belongs to BYU. Perfect way to start conference!

    As much as I hate it we did not beat Utah and thus cannot claim the State. How I hope Utah places 6th in the Pac 12 and gets a Bowl bid in San Francisco.

    As for the Aggies - I wish you a great season and hope the wins come in large numbers from here on out.

    1. BYU 3-12 against Utah
    2. BYU 0-4 agaist Utah in last 4 years
    ************

    Why go back just 12 years? Answer: It is the only way to support the narrative you are trying to frame.

    Why not go back to all games between BYU and Utah since 1970 (the beginning of the common era of NCAA football)? Answer: Because BYU still has more wins than U. So cherry pick those stats all you want.

    Can't wait to talk basketball.

    BYU was beating USU BEFORE Keeton went down; score might have been a little closer with him, but the net result, just like last year, would have been the same.

    Utah State's future without Keeton does not look good.

    I hope he's okay and goes on to win the MWC.

    Extremely sad to see Keeton go down. Best of luck to the Aggies the rest of the way.

    Great job by BYU tonight. Good to see Hill throwing the ball downfield. Matthews was the man. Bills on defense it coming on strong.

    Things are coming together.

    I have to agree with bluecoug89... this is a very disappointing weekend for the utes who became aggies tonight. Two losses in one weekend - ouch!

  • DEW Cougars Sandy, UT

    1. Look like Aggies will be 0-2 instate rival.
    2. "U" now 0-2 in PAC12
    3. BYU, Independent 3-2, look like heading the right direction.
    4. Can't see the game but not a good sign to see Chuckee go down, hope he will be fine to continue with mwc.

    @ Pipes

    The score was 30-26. What's your point? What was the score when Utah came to your place to play? You can have your moral victory or whatever you want to call it since you can't beat Utah on the field.

  • Jenny83 Logan, UT
    Oct. 4, 2013 9:12 p.m.

    Utah State probably won't win 1 or 2 more games this year without Chuckie....

    Nevada Coug.. watch the replay again.. his hand slides past the helmet - the head doesn't turn or twist. There was no face mask. I watched the same replay. The refs got it right.

    I love the silence of the BYU haters as the Cougs trample over the aggies.

    Sorry you have to watch a BYU team completely dominate the Aggies! Great game by Hill and Matthews! Great job by the BYU D.

    Going to be nice to go bowling in the post season.

    Ute fans, do you remember what that was like?

  • morganh Orem, Utah
    Oct. 4, 2013 8:37 p.m.

    So Utah State is the better team? KVN a pick 6, tackle for a loss and a batted ball on a 4th and 5. Taysom Hill 3 TD's to Mitch Mathews. Result: B.Y.U. leads 31 to 7 late in the 3rd. Sounds to me like B.Y.U is the better team right now. Chrisb must be so disgusted right now.

  • Pac 12 Pride Salt Lake, UT
    Oct. 4, 2013 8:36 p.m.

    This officiating crew is terrible. There have been 3 pass intereferences not called and several personal fouls that should have been called against byu. Stop with the late hits already byu.

    To all BYU haters: Hope you are enjoying the BYU victory as much as you enjoyed the 6 picks last night by the Utah qb and yet another conference lose. I guess one fumble b y the BYU qb is much worse than the turnovers by Utah. LOL

  • moderateinmagna MAGNA, UT
    Oct. 4, 2013 8:14 p.m.

    Well Ute trolls guess what Hill just threw his TD pass of the nite ,BYU now lead 24-7 so is USU the better team with or without Chuckie i think not.

  • kitsutsuki South Jordan, Utah

    Could be - I am listening to, not watching the game. However, there is no question that the quarterback at the Y over the past few years has been a problem. I just hope they can get it corrected.

  • NevadaCoug Overton, NV
    Oct. 4, 2013 7:49 p.m.

    Re: kitsutsuki

    The O-line is a big part of the problem. They are providing little to no protection for Hill tonight. They are even going max-protect and guys are still getting to Hill. Can't find an open receiver if you don't have time.

  • kitsutsuki South Jordan, Utah
    Oct. 4, 2013 7:43 p.m.

    I am soooo frustrated with the quarterback play - over the last SIX years or more. Between Heaps, Riley and now Hill, the q-back position has kept these BYU teams from being really, really good. There has got to be a quarterback on this team that can THROW THE BALL.

    Now that I have vented, good job BYU. Defense, as usual, is solid and the offensive, albeit spotty at best, has at least put up 10 points.

    Go Cougars!
