UW had a good blueprint. Better special teams play and that's a win for them. Utah is capable of playing them that tough if the defense shows up like it did last week. Hoping for another fantastic game, great finish, and a Utah W this time!

My only thought on this is that utah is extremely lucky they don't play Washington this year. It appears they get some sort of schedule break every year in the pac12 and even so keep posting losing records. I'm not sure they will ever have a winning pac12 record.

What a surprise; another PAC 12 game ends with a controversial call.

Was the ball touching the ground really "indisputable" enough to overturn the completed pass call on the field?

The Utes are in big trouble this week. Not only is Stanford a much better team, PAC 12 officiating obviously favors the Cardinal.

Seriously? The past two years you told Utah fans how fortunate we were not having to play Stanford and Oregon. Now The Utes play #2 Oregon and #5 Stanford instead of Cal and Washington and you say we are "extremely lucky" with this years scheduling?

Utah "haters" never cease to amaze me!

LOL

Yes, extremely lucky they don't have to play washington instead of washington st, although I don't think washington st is any sort of sure win for utah this year. It appears that each year utah has gotten a break and not had to play at least one, and actually the first two seasons 2, of the best teams in the conference.

Your inability to comprehend that utah is getting another scheduling break by not having to play washington doesn't change the fact that utah is getting another scheduling break by not having to play washington. They got to play two teams they actually have a chance of beating, osu which they lost anyway, and wsu which they may lose to as well, instead of one team which they would have had zero chance of beating in washington, and another team that is about a toss up in cal.

You know just because I am the one that posts it doesn't mean it is simply hate or incorrect. utah "fans", like yourself, who appear to have no ability to see truth when it slaps them in the face, are what keeps me amused around here. LOL!

Just because you post it doesn't mean you are correct, either.

No it doesn't, but in this case I am. How not having to play a top 25 team is not a scheduling break is something I'm waiting to have explained to me, especially when that team is a team utah has NEVER beaten.

I understand that things are tough right now for utah "fans", utah has been extremely poor in conference since joining the pac12 and utah "fans" had been proclaiming immediate rose bowls and instead they've been uncompetitive. That's a tough pill to swallow. I also understand having guys like me come on here and not just remind you about it but also get some digs in over it is a tough pill to swallow. But that is what you guys asked for with your deluded proclamations of immediate grandeur and arrogance. Deal with it.

In a conference with 5/12 teams in the top 25, most teams won't play all of them every season. Utah has arguably the toughest schedule in the conference this year, and because they play literally ALL but one of the very good teams, you call that a lucky break? It's obvious that you're more concerned with getting your digs in than being rational in any argument.

Keep in mind PAC groupies:you will also be playing against the officials for the rest of the season, possibly with the exception of the CU game. Good luck!

"It's obvious that you're more concerned with getting your digs in..."

Maybe, so what. The fact is that it is a break, no way to spin it otherwise. Would you prefer to play uw instead of wsu?

Over time the balance of power will shift back and forth between the pac north and the pac south, right now the power is in the pac north and that has given utah the advantage of not having to play all the very best teams in the pac all 3 years they have been in the league. The first two years they didn't have to play stanford and oregon, an obvious schedule advantage, this year they don't have to play washington which might be the 3rd best team in the pac12 and that is an obvious advantage. At some point the 3 best teams will be in the south and then utah will not get any breaks, but for now they are getting breaks, as you pointed out that is how it works when you don't play every team every year.
