Washington struggled with Cal.

"Utah has fared well at NFL stadiums"

Unfortunately, the Utes haven't fared well against the opponent they're playing

- 0-7 lifetime versus the Huskies
- winless on the road this season
- winless this century on the road against PAC 12 teams with winning records

Enough said.

Huskies 31
Utes 14

"Utah has fared well at NFL stadiums"

Grasping at straws again Dirk?

Who cares about Utah's NFL stadium record, when the majority of those games were played against San Diego State?

Why didn't bring up Utah's record against the Huskies instead?

" winless this century on the road against PAC 12 teams with winning records "
I sure hope Utah wins Saturday so BYU fans can't bring up that obscure fact. When is the last time BYU beat a BCS conference team, with a winning record, on the road? It's been a while. I certainly wouldn't brag about something that my teams hasn't accomplished either.


Utah has not beat a Pac team with a winning record since they joined the league - at home or on the road.
And thanks Chris B for the insightful analysis. By the way UW beat OSU - Utah didn't.

Coach Whit commented "I really hadn't thought of that" because this obscure fact has absolutely nothing to do with the game this Saturday. Interesting stat by doesn't mean a thing. Limiting turnovers, penalties, dropped passes, and QB sacks will determine the game in Seattle.

No matter where they are playing, the Utes need to keep improving and cut down on the turnovers.

A few weeks ago I didn't think the Utes had a chance to win this game but it seems like Utah has found some offense and Washington hasn't looked as good as they had earlier in the season. It will still be a huge test for Utah and they will have to play a very clean game to get a win. I think the offensive line play will be a huge key to this game. They need to protect Travis and give enough time to make some throws while opening some holes for the run game. Still not sure If York is going to play or not but I'm guessing he won't since they haven't mentioned him.

Hopefully the Utes can pull out a road win it would be nice to break that losing streak against Washington.

Go Utes!



You say "Why didn't bring up Utah's record against the Huskies instead?


Why is a BYU fan like yourself so interested in how Utah is doing? I would think you would be more interested in your own record against your rivals, which includes losing three straight, 4 out of 5, 8 out of 11, and being on the losing side of 56-34-4 overall.

Also, as Spokane Ute pointed out, when was the last time BYU beat any BCS team with a winning record?


Salt Lake City, Utah


Why are you so afraid to address the real issuse here - Utah's pathetic record against good conference opponents (winless so far against PAC 12 teams with winning records), and more specifically, Utah's winless road record?

If you weren't so busy deflecting, you'd see that BYU's record versus anybody is totally irrelevant to this discussion, except for this little gem:

Lifetime Records versus Washington
BYU 4-4
Utah 0-7

You do realize, don't you, that the Utes have a better record against the YMCA (1-6), than they have against the Huskies?

Didn't think so.

Deflect away!

I have one response to that comment, and this goes for every BYU fan out there. 56-34-4. Until that changes, you'll always be second best.

Salt Lake City, UT


I have several responses to your meaningless 56-34-4.

Give me one single Utah accomplishment on a national scale prior to 1962.

I'll give you dozens of BYU accomplishments since.

BYU 29-21 over Utah during the last half century.

National Championships
Utah 0

Heisman Trophies
Utah 0

Top 25 Finishes
BYU 18
Utah 7

National Individual Award Winners
BYU 15
Utah 0

National College Football Hall of Fame Inductees
Utah 0

On a national scale, which is the only scale that really matters, Utah is a VERY DISTANT second best...

and always will be.

Using your logic, BYU is worse than Georgia Tech. Do you agree with that?

West Jordan, UT


Very funny, but with all of your accomplishments, the one between Utah and BYU that matters is would be the record on the field. Take whatever trophy you want, we still have the edge, and will for a long time. So, I think we know who is still second best. GO UTES!

Just wondering, how many BCS bowl games BYU has been in?
