Irvine, CA

Overall grade for Utah: A

Overall grade for BYU: B-
(would have been C if not for that free TD
when the refs did not call the pass interference)

Salt Lake, UT

Utes need to work on Punt blocking. Been a big issue the last 2 games.

Since our run game is struggling, how about setting up the run game by throwing some quick hitters for 6-7 yards on first down.

Also, how about some mis-direction running plays

An 'F' for Utah's fans for storming the field twice before the game was over. You could have cost your team the game. If not for BYU's inept field goal game, this one would have been in overtime. And who knows what would have happened then?



"IF" is not a word in athletics, we'll take an F 24-21 that's what happened.

BYU has two or maybe three quarterbacks on the roster that are far better than Riley. Why is Riley playing?

BYU offensive coordinator an FFFFFFF. Worst coordinator in college football.

Does anyone know how BYU can receive a C- for offense, a B+ for defense, a B+ for special teams and end up with a C- overall?

Shouldn't the overall grade be about a B- ?

The report card for Utah actually made sense: C+, A-, B+ for a B overall.

Of course, I've been out of school for quite a few years.

East Salt Lake City, Utah

Utah's offense B-:
No running game but no turnovers as well.

Defense B+:
Shut out BYU for 3 quarters, 24-7 lead with total of 171 yards
Then allowed 14 points and 141 yards in the 4th

Special Teams D:
4th and 12 at UTAH 20, Sean Sellwood (punter) rush for a loss of 6 yards to the Utah 14 with 5:11 left in the game. That was as good as a turnover, it setup BYU's third TD.

Salt Lake City, UT

Game Start Time: D
A crazy finish that didn't make the highlight reels because it was too late.
By the time the rivalry game was over, ESPN was previewing NFL games.

Salt Lake City, UT

If that would've happened midday it might've reach Stanford Bandian proportions:
"No folks, you aren't watching replay, they actually rushed the field three times," followed by Whit's "We should be 4-1, because we won this game three times." That makes BYU 2-3.
