How can the Hoffman case present 'another miraculous redemption story like Hadley' and have Hoffman show up for the next game when you have Hadley out for at least five games, and precedents like Harvey Unga missing his entire senior year! And Brandon Davies missing the entire rest of a best-ever year! And Kyle Van Noy having to sit out his entire Freshman year! Whats the purpose of your post? BYU doesn't gloss over violations of the school honor code and team rules, let alone any possible NCAA violations (there are none here) or outright brushes with the law. Unlike most schools, including the one you support.

I think Utah State will probably win but it will depend on whether or not Hill can move the team via the pass, if he can & then you combine what he can do with his feet, then BYU should win . So many poster want to say my team or this team is better than that team based on one game and how good a team is can't be determined on one game. Utah beat BYU fair and square but which team is really the best can't be known yet. Let's see how they are playing and how some of their key players are performing in 4 to 6 weeks, How good the utes can be depends a lot on how Wilson develops and continues to improve, they could beat UCLA if Wilson has a great game, the same is true about BYU, how well Hill can pass, will determine how good BYU can be, BYU can beat any team on their schedule if Hill can move the team via the pass, if not BYU will lose 3 or 4 more. Utah State is solid , experienced and probably underrated.

I think USU is a good game but all you Y haters are making USU look like Oregon. Who have they beat that's has a winning record? AFA (1-4, got killed by Wyo), Weber State (everyone beats), (SJSU -1-3). So, USU hasn't beat anyone with a defense as good as BYU and KVN3.
USU is on par with the Ewets, and should have wont that game. The Y should have beat the Ewets too. So what if they beat 3 crappy teams and lost to 2 mediocre teams. Bottom line, it will be a good game and I expect BYU's defense will keep the Y close. If the offense shows up, the Y wins.

I thought someone would get a laugh out of my post. Of course, it won't happen. Once teams have played a game, I do not think there is one case where the same two teams were matched up again in a bowl game. I guess there is always a first, but I don't see it happening in this case. The PAC 12 would not want a possibility of one of their teams losing in the same year to a team they had already beat.

About 6 years ago, BYU played UCLA three times in 13 months, including a bowl game. It can happen, although it is not a regular occurence.

You are correct - I forgot about that. I believe one of those games was BYU 48 UCLA 0. And didn't BYU win 2 out of the 3 games?

BYU fan here. But USU is gonna win. Better QB, more targets. Unless the Y's defense takes over, but USU is pretty good.
