While I agree that BYU and USU are (hopefully) bowl bound (it still has to be proven on the field of play) I wouldn't count the UTES out. Utah gets to play some of the toughest teams on their own turf, which gives the UTES a decided advantage, especially due to the altitude. I would love to see all three teams go bowling, but first, let's have fun this season, and WIN some (a lot of) games!


Predictions made before a game is even played are only distractions, they have very little meaning!

Most of the U's coaching staff are former BYU players! At least the head coach and defensive coordinator both are.


TJ, off the top of my head, Utah: Norm Chow (Hawaii), Mike McCoy (Chargers); BYU: Kyle Whittingham (Utah), Andy Reid (Chiefs), Steve Sarkesian (Washington).

The "other prognosticators" are right.

Awesome for all the teams... even that one vote. doh!

Don't be so sure about the USU prediction. They may have to fight a little more just to get back into the Potato Bowl.

Maybe we should play some games before we start planning a bowl game, huh?

4 of 17 is not "most".

I find it amusing how all of you BYU fans talk about how bad Utah's program is, yet the Utes have had the upper hand against you for past 20 years. (Utah 13 wins 7 losses) Utes are so awful, then what does that say about the credibility of your program? I think we'll see a turn around on the hill. I think the Utes will probably go 7-5 this year, with wins against both BYU and Utah St.. Go Utes!

I think I will trust the national media instead. Sorry buddy. One game does not a season make.
Utes will be 3-9 this year, possibly 4-8 if they are lucky.

Upsets happen; the true measure of success isn't determined by a single game each season, but by overall record and ranking, and that record speaks for itself.

Despite all of the bluster from the hill, all of those head-to-head wins versus BYU add up to a whole lot of nothing but one game bragging rights.
