After losing to BYU, Georgia Tech has won back-to-back road games at Maryland and at North Carolina, and the Yellow Jackets are now 2nd, behind only Miami, in the ACC Coastal Division. With Duke up next, at home, Georgia Tech will very likely be 6-5 when they play their season finale at Georgia.

Not a great team, but certainly MUCH better than the "bottom ACC team" you claimed them to be.

Also, it's interesting that you didn't mention the fact that Utah State is 8-2 and tied for tied for first in the WAC, nor, that the Aggies BEAT the Utes.

It's laughable that you completely ignored BYU's near win at #3-ranked Notre Dame.

Minimizing BYU's record does nothing to elevate the record of that train wreck on the hill, it just makes your critique of BYU look petty and disengenuous.

I like BYU independence. I like BYUtv. And I like Bronco. Go BYU!

I'm so tired of hearing how weak the schedule is. Get over it. Yes, it was a weak schedule. When you have lower tier PAC-12 teams (Utah, & Washington St.) and lower WAC teams on the schedule, bowl games are going to come. But Holme said the first two years would be boaring games. I want to hear someone complain about how weak 2013 is going to be. Someone on here tell me that 2013 (and going forward) will not be a BCS type schedule. Otherwise, zip the soggy lips and get over it.

Look at our schedule this season and last. Look at the teams we lost to. And look at next seasons schedule and beyond. How many games do you honestly think BYU can win?

It does not matter who we schedule. If we can't beat ranked teams and better competition, why did we leave the MWC in the first place other than for exposure?

No Conference Championships for U

We've been in the PAC 12 for two years now, and we still haven't beaten a single conference team with a winning record.

Look at our schedule this season and last. Look at the teams we lost to. And look at next season's schedule and beyond. How many games do you honestly think Utah can win if we can't even beat teams like Colorado and Utah State?

It does not matter who we schedule. If we can't beat ranked teams and better competition, why did we leave the MWC in the first place if all we're ever going to be is a conference bottom dweller?

Ufan Pac 12 Punching Bag.....and more names.
Easy to see how thin skinned a handful of BYU fans are. Especially when they find the need to create multiple avatars to mask their obsessive activities here.

How original of an upset Cougee to plagiarize!

Sorry dude; I have no idea who "PAC 12 Punching Bag" is other than a certain team that is currently 0-1 in the WAC.

Bring up the WAC look what Boise state did when they were in the Wac. BYU have not beat Utah in 3 years and next year Utah looks to have the better team once again.

I don't even know why I'm commenting. BYU did happen to lose to all the good teams that they played this year. So what. Then BYU beats all the teams that they should have beaten this year and some of you still roast them. What's the point? Some will roast BYU no matter what they do.

Utah beat byu and plays much better teams week in and week out. It is so hard for you to realize that, byu isn't even close. You get on here a dare have omments about the two different schools it just shows how out of touch with college football you are.

our offense is less than credible, all we want for Christmas it to be BOWL ELIGIBLE!"

No offense to UTA bus drivers.

Utah hasn't beaten a decent team, besides BYU, all season. And, no, U don't play better teams week in and week out, in fact, Utah hasn't played a team even close to the level of the #3-ranked team BYU barely lost to in South Bend this year.

Get over your misguided arrogance; the Utes haven't beaten a decent PAC 12 team since joining the conference. Losing to better teams week in and week out doesn't prove anything, but losing to teams like Colorado does prove that the Utes aren't even good enough to beat the teams they're supposed to beat.

What a sad sad game. So sorry to see BYUs November schedule. This season was a flop after Utah and Boise State. Nelson is a dud and running up stats against the likes of Idaho won't change that!

You're right, BYU will not win big games as long as we play subpar Quarterbacks. Now that the scheduling is more attractive, either Bronco will get his Bronco on or get his Bronco out. With a handful of exceptional Quarterbacks coming up the pipe, I like where BYU is heading. Hopefully the coaching will be there to supplement the talent. I don't see BYU having a year next year like Utah is having. I see BYU doing fairly well. National championship? No way, but not a a horrible year either.

If we Cougs can win out the season, we might just be awarded the 4A Tri-State High School Championship!

Go Cougars?

Actually, if the Cougars win out to finish 9-4, they have an outside shot of finishing in the Top 25 again.

Unlike your lowly Utes, who stand at the brink of bowl elimination and will have to win out just to finish above .500.

Yes, it has taken a while for the independent schedule to shape up. But next year looks really good:

08/31/13at Virginia Cavaliers
09/07/13Texas Longhorns
09/14/13TBA
09/21/13Boise State Broncos
09/28/13Utah Utes
10/04/13at Utah State Aggies
10/12/13Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets
10/19/13at Houston Cougars
10/26/13TBA
11/02/13TBA
11/09/13at Wisconsin Badgers
11/16/13TBA
11/23/13at Notre Dame Fighting Irish
11/30/13TBA
12/07/13at Hawaii Warriors

Now if BYU can just jettison those bad teams, Utah and Hawaii, off the schedule it will all be top tier....

BTW, Riley looked really good. But we all know Idaho's defense is non-existent. My Grandma could have done well....

"Unlike your lowly Utes, who stand at the brink of bowl elimination and will have to win out just to finish above .500."

MY lowly Utes? I am not a Ute fan. Why the paranoia? Does it help make you feel better about the Cougars to denigrate the Utes?

Strange.

I'll take the win and yes it was fun to watch the team play well but It is amazing how good Riley looked against lousy competition. Riley will continue to Shine the next two games...Until the bowl game. Mark My Words.

Idaho has barely won a Single game this year. Yee-Haw!
