Win Thursday = Pac 12 South title

That's been my opinion since before the season began

And for those who say Utah wont win, you are the people who said Utah wouldn't beat usu and wouldn't byu.

And those turned out just great!

Go Utes!

Onward and Upward

Things I've said since the preseason:

1. Utah would beat usu(done)
2. Utah would beat byu(Done)
3. Utah would go 8-4(well on our way)
4. the Utah/UCLA winner would win the Pac 12 South

And at home, I like our chances.

Utah 27
UCLA 24

Mark it Down

It's going to be a cold stormy night - perfect scenario for Utah.

I'm calling it now:

UCLA 3 turnovers
Utah 1 turnover

Utah 27
UCLA 24

And Utah will be ranked in the top 25!

Where are all the ute trolls? Oh, that's right, they are al over on the BYU articles commenting on that team that they have "moved on" from. Have fun getting your buns handed to you tomorrow! No Rose Bowl or Bowling again this year. Maybe you need one of those life alert things....."we've fallen and we can't get up!" It' down there in the basement, isn't it!

Eddie..How does it feel to know that your lowly little Cougs can't beat the Utes!

@Eddie:

Go Utes!

BYU would win the PAC 12. That is why we weren't invited.

I like the Bruins in this one. They have a defense like BYU and an offense that can score in about 50 different ways. Turnovers could be a huge key in this one. I think the Utes need to get at least 4 to win this one. The Utes are a long ways from contending for the crown. They may win the South in the Pac 12 but the overall title is out of the question at least for the foreseeable future. No offense to the Utah fans, it's just an opinion.

As a fan of football, I'm just hoping for a good game. Let's hope both teams bring their A game!

Utah 3 turnovers
UCLA 1 turnover

UCLA 45
Utah 17

Utah's season will be over with nothing but the annual pillow fight in the Rockies to look forward to.

Utah 28
UCLA 24

Sorry BYU fans you will have to wait another week and pull for Utahs next opponent. Something you will do all season since all authorities know BYU can't beat Utah

We will win ucla by 43 points. We are in a bcs conference.

UCLA 48
Utah 13

Rose Bowl bound? PAC-12 South bound? The only thing more pathetic than the entire state of Utah is anyone thinking that Utah is anything but 11th or 12th place this year. If Colorado wasn't on their schedule, I'd predict a defeated PAC-12 schedule this year for Utah.

I ama huge UCLA fan, have been since I ever watched football when I was a kid. I like UCLA of course in this game. I have picked a score of UCLA 45 Utah 17, but man this weather is starting to scare me. I still like my Bruins but dang why could this game not be played in good weather.

GO BRUINS!

@TheSportsAuthority

Utah 20
BYU 13

BYU lost it's Super Bowl, with nothing but pillow fights across America for the next 3 years to look forward to.

Good luck!

As far as Utah, Vegas likes UCLA by 5 points. It will be close game I think if Utah wins the TO margin then Utah 38 UCLA 30.

Go UTES!

You ironically picked the same score as TheSportsAuthority who is a known die hard BYU homer who jumps to any bandwagon that plays Utah. Why? Because his team has no chance to "beat" so he jumps from team to team that might.

@Uteology

If you have been here this week on all the UCLA Utah articles, you know I picked that score all week. I did not pick the same as anyone else. I picked my score. I have pitched my UCLA faithfulness on this site for years. And I can't see myself as a BYU homer since I also picked Utah to win the game against Utah.

Good luck to your Utes, here's to a good game.

GO BRUINS!

I hope Utah can show up to the game. However I think UCLA pulls this one out unless our corners can get a couple of turnovers. UCLA is much more of a rounded team than Utah is.

Go Utes!!

Mildred may I remind you that your beloved cougars have already lost to the only PAC12 team on their schedule. That's four in a row and three more years to go. LOL!

Utah lost by 7 last year at UCLA. The spread is 6 points. Those are realistic numbers. A 28 point prediction carries about as much weight as a Chris B prediction. Utah has played UCLA very tough over the last 3 meetings, I don't see that changing tonight. When you post outlandish predictions the knowledgable fan is going to call you out on it.

GO UTES
