Good win for the Cougars...they are showing progress each week. There is really potential for this team. Go cougs!

Another solid win - go Cougs!

Cottonwood Heights, UT

Great game. Gotta love my Cougars!

Congrats to the Utes on their big upset! I didn't think they could do it but they did.

It's been a fun night of football here in Utah.

Texans for BYU
Houston, TX

I was excited to see Hoffman get his first TD of the season. Hopefully he will have a few more.

Hill showed a complete game passing and running is much improved from earlier in the season.

KVN is awesome as usual. The defense can keep the Y in the game against anyone.

Good win... we're happy in Texas tonight and anxious to have the team in Houston next week. I will be in the stands cheering on our Cougars for another BYU win!

Nice win, congrats to the good, loyal Coug fans.

Salt Lake City, UT

Congratulations, to BYU!


I guess Texas wasn't as bad as everyone thought. For most Utah fans, losing to BYU makes a team "poor" by definition; it can't be simply that BYU played well against a good team. I'll resist the temptation to return the favor by calling Stanford self-evidently overrated--I'm willing to give them credit for playing a great game. I hope both teams do well from here on out.

Decent win

Not quite a win against top 5 undefeated national title contender.

But a win.

You guys will probably be ranked 40 after this win

Although zero impact on bowl game or conference title like ours.

Orem, UT

Nice solid win. Hill is getting it all together. Anae needs to let him run wild.

Nice win by Utah tonight as well.

I'm hoping they win 6 and we get a bowl game rematch!

Provo, UT

Good job Cougars! Good job Utes!

CO Ute

Nice win for the Y. In control the entire game. Say what you want about Bronco, he can certainly prepare a defense for an option team, especially with the strong group of LBs on this years squad.

Taylorsville, Utah

A good win at home for the cougs. Congratulations. I hope next year they'll wear jerseys with players name on the back, especially at a "Home Coming" game.

Salt Lake City, UT

Hahah, Christopher B, you really entertain me. The team you cheer for just beat the #5 ranked team, but your BYU obsession is so much an overpowering part of who you are that you can't help but go on the BYU article and belittle BYU's win. The team you cheer for had the biggest upset of the week (actually of the year so far). Congratulations.

As for the game that this article was about, I was of course pleased with BYU's win, but was a little irritated by the offense in the 2nd half. IF the defense hadn't stepped it up, it may have been a close game. Anae still is only a slightly above average (at best) OC so far this year. But I won't complain, because we won. Was pleased with Hill, thrilled with Hoff's amazing TD catch, and very very pleased and trilled with KVN as usual. And of course I loved Fua's pick six. Go Cougars!

West Point , UT

Thanks to the classy ute fans. BYU is looking better and better offensively every week. I'm looking forward to seeing how much improvement is made between now and end of season. Great night of CFB in the state...well except for Utah state.

Provo, UT

@ Chris B
Congrats to Utah with their win. First time ever they have beaten a top 10 team at home. Something that BYU have done before, so for us BYU fans we don't really care. But we all know you didn't have anything to do with it.

"...Not quite a win against top 5 undefeated national title contender...."

We know a little about big wins - we had the first one 25 years ago v. #1 ranked Miami. Been there, done that Johnny Come Lately.

Good, solid win.

Salt Lake City, UT

Offense looked bad in the second half. Anae got conservative with his up the middle throw away downs. Fist half play calling was amazing. If he would just keep it up for the entire game, fans would be happier. We'll take the win though.


Good win down south. REPRESENT!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Lincoln City, OR

Huge BYU fan here... I really enjoyed the first half but I got to tell you that the play calling in the second half was horrible... Anae went from Dr. Jekyl to Mr. Hyde in 15 short minutes...

We shouldn't be sitting on the ball in the 3rd quarter with an 11 point lead...

Also, I wasn't all that impressed with the Offensive line play tonight... Hill didn't get much pertection and they didn't open up too many holes for Williams or Brown.

Our Defense played well (until we went to the bench midway through the 4th quarter)... And Hoffman's catch for the TD was outstanding... A highlight film piece for sure...

Still, a 3 TD win over a big bad BCS team is a good one for the quiver... That and Texas' romp over the Sooners was also nice... It validate our Longhorn blow out a few weeks ago...
