It will be poetic justice when a spunky little Spartan team from the WAC with a good passing game outplays & defeats an over-sized, unimaginative running team from Independence & ESPN world. BYU used to be a spunky & imaginative little passing team from the WAC, just like SJSU.

I think BYU will lose this game tonight. However, I think they will beat New Mexico State next week. I also believe they will win games scheduled against Las Vegas in 2014 and 2015.

Nelson should go back to special teams and play Lark the rest of the season. Nelson has lowered the standard at BYU. its frustrating to watch the offence play the first half.

Wow! I knew BYU couldn't pass the ball ... but I thought they would have a little success running the ball. They're getting stuffed on 4th and 2, 3rd and 2 ... The SJSU coaches really prepared their players on both sides of the ball.

if lark was so good he would be starting. the fact that we are stuck with riley after so many poor performances means lark and munns probably dont cut it. if taysom hill doesn't get injured i think we win a few more of those close games, and riley would have been relegated to the bench.

if we were in the wac we would be 3rd or 4th place. that is pathetic. this season needs to end, riley needs to graduate, and we need some coaching changes.

Well, at least Utah lost to Arizona. Nice to have company, after what appears to be another train wreck game for BYU.

Idaho scored more points (13) against SJSU than BYU.

Doman/Nelson see ya! Not good enough. Watching BYU's offense is like getting a root canal.

The sad part is BYU has a good young RB and excellent WR's. Just can't block for the RB and get the ball to the WR's.

Game over! Five minutes left and lowly WAC school SJSU has it in the bag against BYU.

we stink tonight!


Is anyone else glad Riley graduates, the guy has lots of grit but man he is a horrible QB, put in Lark!!

Syracuse, ut

What an ugly game, offense looked terrible as usual, can we just play the bowl game and get this season over with?

What a shame the offense is really bad as usual..To bad Bronco can only coach defense. Glad Riley, and Doman is gone next yr.

Patience fans...only two more games and he'll be gone forever.

BYU could have won the game, should have won the game. The defense, after-shall we say-a shaky start-more than held their own. However, as has happened time and time again, boneheaded plays and turnovers led to the defeat. Unfortunately, all three turnovers are at the feet of one player.

Everett, WA

Almost a miracle! Oh well ... at least we were in the running to win the game. That is always Bronco's goal ... to have a chance to win in the end. Problem is ... he doesn't win many of those close games at the end.

Everett, WA

BYU did win the 2nd half 7 to 0. That must mean something.



Yep, byu should have won that game just like they should be 11-0 right now on there way to a national championship right?

Syracuse, ut

BYU better start playing better than this if we want to stay relevant as an independent, especially with the new bowl system starting in a couple of years. I know I am in the minority, but I strongly believe BYU needs to eventually get into a conference to stay relevant. What a frustrating season this has been.

Farmington, UT

Now that the game is over and BYU has officially lost again because the quarterback can't seem to take care of the ball, and the OC calls a run into the right side of the line that was stuffed every time they tried it, I hope AD Holmoe is tired enough of these shananigans to insist on some coaching changes. This year was bad because we had no field goal game to speak of, no play calling except what was very predictible, and way too many turnovers. Plus the O-line was missing in action. It's a miracle we actually had the opportunity to win at the end, although our true selves came shining through and we couldn't climb the mountain (despite the great on-side kick)......AGAIN!

This has beeen a frustrating few years. I hope the bowl game is decent....but that's asking an awful lot. It's truly hard to believe this team almost beat Notre Dame in South Bend.
