This is what they have to do - take care of business. The shutout is a nice touch.

Week 1:

A) The defense is outstanding.

B) The offense needs work (Wynn)

F) The kicking game is "abysmal".

Both Utah State and BYU looked good, they'll both be tougher then I had expected.

Would have been nice if we could actually see the game. Not at all happy with the tv deal. Feels like the mtn all over again even down to the conference telling us to call our satellite provider.

Totally pathetic.

BYU, Utah State, Utah---did any of them give up a touchdown?

41-0 against a no name opponent and Coach Whittingham is driving the feature back (White IV) in the 4th quarter. 25 carries is too many in a blowout. Whitt needs to save White IV or he will run him into the ground.

Coach Mac's Utes were blowing out Indiana when he ran Marty Johnson into an ACL tear in the 4th quarter. Johnson was never the same player, although he had a nice senior season with Urban Meyer.

Utah will lean heavily on White and they should give him the rock a lot, but save him when you can. Tonight was silly.

I just wish Whitt would recognize what the rest of the football world is doing by having two backs. white needs 20-25 carries tops each game. Last year he had two games over 40 carries and half his games were over 30 carries. That is insane. White held up great and is an iron man. Still history shows that when a RB comes back from a heavy carry season with oanother one, his production drops and injuries happen. It's called wear and tear.

Hey Utah! I used to make fun of Nebraska opening up their seasons against Ball State. I think now I'll have to change that to making fun of you opening up against University of Northern Colorado. I live in Northern Colorado and wouldn't pay money to watch them play football. Have they even won 5 games in the past decade?

Your game would have been more exciting if you played Skyline High School. I wonder how good you actually are? If your coach can't tell you what he learned in this game....how can the fans even feel good about it.

You said - "Both Utah State and BYU looked good, they'll both be tougher then I had expected."

Glad to see there are a few Ute fans who are realists.

Whenever any of my Ute fan friends or family members say the Utah State and BYU games will be cakewalks for the Utes, I politely reply with one single word.

"Colorado"

From a Cougar fan, well done Utes!

Defense was top notch, offense was strong. Great win to start the season.

Excited to see how you guys do as your schedule gradually gets tougher each week, starting next Saturday up in Logan.

This isn't your grandmother's Utah State team anymore.

Worf,

Looks like this season may be a good one for all state schools so far.

Correction to Amy. The Utes only allowed 35 yards rushing and 79 passing.

USU and BYU both looked strong.

After the Utes so-so performance against the worst AA team and after the Cougars absolute and clear dominance over WSU, I think some Utes are shaking in their cleats at the prospect of going up against the Blue.

Nelson and his Cougars are going to prove a point on the Hill this year and put little brother back into his place.

Was at the game last night. Not terribly impressed with the offense, but they certainly didn't get too creative offensively or defensively with UNC. Really a very basic approach. I would be surprised if they hadn't spent the last few days setting up the game plan for Utah State. I know Whitt says they don't overlook anyone, but it doesn't mean they didn't give some focus to USU.

Im excited about the future of Travis Wilson. Guy is a stud! Go Ute's... Glad to have the first game out of the way. I expect they'll be a little more exciting and crisp in week 2.

Go Utes

@Cosmo's Cousin,

Shaking in our "cleats"? Hardly. While the Y looked good against WSU, they are hardly a dominant team, either offensively or defensively. I remmeber how "dominant" the Y looked last year and how last year's Holy War turned out, don't you??? While I'm hopeful the offense can pull it together, the Y will have a MUCH harder time getting away with the kind of plays they did last night against the U's defense. With that said, can't wait to see my Utes play USU to get a better idea of the team's potential.

"After the Utes so-so performance against the worst AA team and after the Cougars absolute and clear dominance over WSU, I think some Utes are shaking in their cleats at the prospect of going up against the Blue".

Here's the thing. Utah can play defense, in fact Utah's defense is one of the best in the Pac-12 and WSU is one of the worst. Until BYU finally beats Utah, WE OWN U little brother!

"Nelson and his Cougars are going to prove a point on the Hill this year and put little brother back into his place".

And what's that point? I remember last year the Utah defense forced Nelson to fumble which resulted in 7 points.
