It was after week three that a cougar fan posted how Utah's SOS (strength of schedule) was "plummeting". After week 6 Utah's remaining schedule includes 4 teams in the top 25; 3 teams in the top 10; and 2 teams in the top 5. All teams on BYU's schedule do not appear in the top 25. I'm just supporting what any reasonable fan knows, Utah's schedule is much tougher than BYU's "toughest schedule ever".

@Who am I sir:

On a bye week, Sagarin jumped Utah from 42 to 32, while byU remained at 43 after their "big win". And, Utah's SOS is already higher.

Just sayin

Go Utes!!

Utah is by far the best program in the state and somewhere between the 4th and 6th best in the Pac 12.

We'll be ranked after this weekend.

And in the drivers seat for the Pac 12 title game against Oregon.

Bring it on.

Go Utes

@ Chris B - Salt Lake City, UT - "Utah is by far the best program in the state and somewhere between the 4th and 6th best in the Pac 12. We'll be ranked after this weekend."

Chris B, how are you going to do that after you lose to UCLA?

@Vegas Ute: By the end of the year, BYU's SOS will be higher than the Utes. (unless all their opponents take a nose dive)

Born in Provo, how is that? BYU's future schedule: ZERO (0) currently ranked teams, (if we're using the Sagarin rating system) average team rating of 64. Utah's future schedule: FOUR (4) currently ranked teams, average team rating of 45.

Utah has a tough road ahead. They are 3-1 now but will be lucky to achieve bowl eligibility. ASU will win the South and Oregon will win the North. Utah will likely finish just ahead of Colorado. Likely to finish 4-8, maybe 5-7 if they can beat WSU. It's great to talk about how tough your schedule is, but after multiple shellackings you are gonna wish that you had an easier road. Recruiting will suffer if Utah is shut out of the bowls again, which is really a likely scenario at this point.
