Crappy late games. You have to credit the ESPN2 appearance to Utah's winning ways and BYU's beatdown of Texas, otherwise this would have hit ESPNU


What game is on ESPN? Betcha it wont be better than this game. Mad about the late start, but what can you do?

At least Utah finally gets to play on national TV. I guess when you are a national brand like BYU you get to play each week. ESPN decided that since Utah is not a national brand they would put it on late night. If BYU would have been playing someone more interesting they would have made it prime time.

I hate to say it but downunder is right. Utah is not a national brand even being in the PAC. I'll say it, I am worried for Sept. 21st.

But seriously folks!

ESPN is punishing BYU for playing Utah. Nobody wants to see Utah play so they put it on late night. I can't wait to get back to playing national name brands and get back to ESPN primetime.

Can't wait to beat the utes. In the words of Kyle Van Awesome, "It's goinna to be a blood bath". The Cougs are hungry and the utes are on the menu. Rise Up, Go BLUE!!

I would rather take the late start then be on ESPNU. Just hope we don't have another rain delay or goes into overtime. This will be a fun game, I agree it will most likely be a very close game. Go BYU.


Should be a fun game. I don't really understand the TV exposure smack as both teams are routinely nationally televised, but unto each his own I suppose. Should be a good game, BYU has an extra week to prepare for Utah and Utah is already looking much much better then last year in pretty much every position. First Utah has got to take care of the Beavers so good luck in practice this week and on Saturday Utes.
Go Utes!!!

Go Cougs! Should be a good game.

Real Blue... Travis Wilson is #8 ranked player in pass efficiency and can also run... Hill is ranked 122 and can only run. Good luck with the big game but Utah takes this one!

Remember last year vs. Utah when Van Noy decleated that Utah lineman on the kick-return?
Can't wait for this game. Texas done, Utah.. your next!

I'd like to call on all BYU fans to follow the old coaching cliche and take this season one game at a time. The Cougars this year are probably better than they showed against Virginia but are not as good as they looked against Texas. Concentrating on beating Utah is a good thing. It's a big game and it's also the next game. Just because we stomped Texas, doesn't mean we will do the same to Utah or any other team. We now have reason to be hopeful, even optimistic but let's not make ourselves look silly by getting ahead of ourselves. There's still a lot of work to be done and it's nice to have the extra week to prepare. It should certainly help Jamaal's back. Now, BEAT those UTES and Go Coug's!!

Lindon, UT

Hope BYU crushes the U into the 2 year break! Go Cougars!

This will be the SECDOND time in the last 15 years Utah has gone 4-0 against byU.

Do you know how far back you have to go to find the last 2 times byu beat Utah 4 times in a row?


Very far.

Very very far.


Lindon, UT

Ute fans talk about how great their QB is after the Weber State game. Don't forget that even Riley Nelson looked decent against the Wildcats last year.

KVN/Hoff want 0-4 against UTAH
Ogden, UT

Why did KVN and Hoffman return for their senior seasons?

They wanted to know what it feels like to beat their rivals.

Too bad they STILL won't know!

Be honest byu fans:

How embarrassing will it be to lose to your rivals FOUR years in a row?


I love being better than everyone else in the state!

Get ready for beat down part 4!! Hilarious that it's just another game for the Utes but Van Noy's super bowl!! Sorry little bro but you will finish your career 0-4 vs. big brother.

We are so humbled and grateful that BYU has allowed Utah the opportunity to play in the same building and be seen by the millions and millions of followers. I'm surprised the NCAA even allows us to play you. Your superiority should at least be recognized by only matching up with national championship hopefuls or NFL teams weekly, right?

Hahaha. If BYU was truly a national brand and loved by so many, it wouldn't matter who they played. They would all be primetime games on ESPN. Keep thinking you're extra special. It always makes for a good laugh.
