Now about the game:

It was definitely a battle... Too many dropped balls though... The call on Murphy was correct... The refs actually did a very good job tonight, I was impressed. The kept the game under control even though there were players in each others faces... Props to both teams... Awesome game. Proud of my Ags.

I have no problem with Utah being the second best team in the state.

They just have to prove it on the field.

Not looking too good as it stands right now.

Right now they have a losing record against the WAC, while BYU has a winning record against the PAC.

Utah needs to run and hide from the better in-state programs.

Mark that down, babe.

Utah is probably the 6th best team in the state, and the 4th best in Colorado...

Dr. Hill is desperately trying to schedule a home-and-home with Savannah State to replace Utah State and BYU.

To My Beloved Utes. It's gotta hurt. Maybe its a good idea you don't schedule Utah State and BYU every year. To My Beloved Aggies, Great win! It was well-deserved. Lots of Love! Lots of Love!

Once again a Chris B. prediction guarantees a USU win! Keep up the good work Chrissy!


Utah is probably better off without Wynn though. That stat line shows that they were obviously better off tonight without him...

The news gets around a little slowly in Logan. Seems the USU players had not heard about Utah going to the PAC. No one told them that Utah has a really tough defensive line...maybe the best in the PAC. Of course the top QB prospect in Utah never got the word on this either so he is going elsewhere. I guess this is because Utah does not have its own TV network and must depend on the PAC to get the word out. Congratulations to USU. When you come to Provo in a few weeks you will have a chance to learn some things you might have been missing.

Wynn wasn't knocked out, he was benched! At least if I understand the game right.... But, again, I didn't see the AWESOME happen!

First Colorado and now the chanting begins...

Aggies own the U-utes, Aggies own the U-utes...

Another 7-5 season at best, maybe a Hunger Game Bowl.

Seriously, the officials?

Ute fans should be happy with Hayes and Wilson in. Once Wynn got hurt, they actually started moving the ball. Wynn's arm strength makes Riley look more like Elway, which is pretty sad. I am more worried now about BYU losing with Wynn out. Hayes and Wilson are better than he was. Still feeling pretty good about next week though. EAT CROW all Ute fans. Losing to USU sucks doesn't it.

Are we going to see a bunch of new posters with names like 27-20? Fans that base their whole existence on winning one game?

Also are we now finally going to be removing some of the embarrassing Pac 12 logos that are littering SLC?

Props to Utah State. Still, they are not better than Utah. BYU looks like they are better though. Utah rolled with Wynn and he's unfortunately not the same player he was his freshman year. It's too bad for Wynn, but him holding a starting spot on the team has set Utah back for the last two years. Reps were needed elsewhere.

Without the blocked punt TD, the offensive pass interference on Murphy in overtime, and three USU fumbles being recovered on their own blunders, Utah probably wins. The game takes shape from these things but excuses are hypotheticals. But if 54-10 was a fluke, an overtime loss where nothing goes your way is noteworthy. Don't forget USU holding Utah time and time again (few calls). That was especially true on Keaton's scramble to the one yard line in overtime, followed by Murphy getting the call against him on Utah's TD called back.

Key play of the game, 9 and 1/2 minutes to go in the game (tied at 13), Williams makes a 33 yard run with Kruger getting held. Sets up first and goal. Rowe pulled a hamstring and Kruger got ejected.

Ahhhh.....that showdown in the RES against the Trojans just took a hit! Hey Utes....watch out next week, or you will get smacked again!

Go Trojans!

This game is going to be talked about for a long time, starting tonight. Get used to it Utes, you really set yourselves up for this wave of abuse. A new OC's inexperience, the wrong QB, 'undisciplined' players (yeah, loved that ejection call), and so forth.

Wow Utes, nothing 'stellar' exhibited tonight against a real football team, as many cautioned, myself included. I'm all ears for the excuses.

I just love how this sets up the next few BYU games quite well. I believe BYU has a good chance of sweeping the both of you, but if not that's ok, anything can happen on any given night in rivalry football.

Sorry about Wynn but is anyone surprised here? Sorry kid, your O line, as predicted, didn't show up. Time to reevaluate what's important in your life, the "fans" are now going to abandon you.

A very enjoyable game to watch and finally the Aggies play one through to the end.

Congrats to the winning team, my daughter's alma mater and a Kleenex to the losing 'bitter and disappointed' fans! LOL

gdog -

Were you watching the same game I was? Utah's defense was in a slant... There was nobody close until they finally caught up at the one... All that can be said was that it was that Keeton was a great playmaker in the game and this play... The refs did a great job even though I felt they missed some late hits and unsportsmanlike conduct of the U. Everyone sees things... For example Utah State fumble at the beginning of the 2nd half... From my view there wasn't obvious evidence that he dropped the ball before hitting the ground... That's why Im not the ref... Aggies just outplayed Utah in a very sloppy game.

oh wait... hunger bowl game isn't where BYU is going.... I would welcome the chance to go 2-0 against the Utes in one season! and that is simply the truth! Never happened before.... It could this year and there is no doubt! Utes don't need firing up to get ready for the Cougars.... They are that way naturally... Just wonder if they will come in oh so cocky as their drone fans all because of 54-10 that they suffer another 70-31 walloping! This time in SLC... That would be oh so sweet!

BYU fans, you're jumping the gun a week early. Try beating us first, remember the last time at RES Wynn played just 5 minutes of good football and we still won.

Aggies deserved the win, they are the better team and they played like it. Great game plan by Anderson to run the option against our defense. Excellent win USU!!

Woo hoo!
