If Utah loses this one, it looks like no bowling for them again this year.

Can we watch this game or is it on that Pac 12 mess again?

Two of top three running backs out for USC

Two top tight ends out

All American marquis lee out.

No excuse to lose. And we won't.

However, the game could be competitive when the USC 2nd stringers are forced to start. CA still winning tho...

"Lets Go Utes, you did it against Standford please beat the Trojans!!!!!"

I'm with you, bro! Let's hope they do it! Too bad I can't get the game anywhere here but I'll be following the scores and updates on ESPN.

Let's see if the Utes can start winning conference games on the road. It needs to happen.

If the utes are not playing on TV for an away game, then who agreed to that tv contract? Bed bugs in the library, no tv for away games, ute basketball.....the Utes are a disaster.......you'd think the govt was running them!



USC is without 6 of their biggest offensive threats and you're still only predicting a 3 point win by the Utes?? What is that saying about your confidence in the U? Don't get me wrong I'm hoping for a Utah win, but I don't like our chances after last week's performance.

A wounded team not playing with a full deck, may be the medicine for an ailing ute team.

Salt Lake City, UT

Here's hoping for a good game. If the utes bring their A game, they stand a good chance. If not...

Mesa, AZ

Fight on!

@CincyRed13 and others

You do remember that Utah lost their 2nd best receiver in the first game of the season. We lost what Coach Wittingham considered the two best tight ends in the conference. We may have our starting quarterback playing at ?% of full ability. We lost what was considered a starting line-backer preseason. A player who would have been a starting linebacker was not eligible until a week or so again due to NCAA in action against Miami. So it is not like we are full strength against USC. Then there is the BYU fan saying don't dismiss Boise State due to their starting quarterback not playing because their second string was more effective avoiding BYU's rush than the starter would have been. So in summary: to many BYU's win was great and the lack of a starting quarterback was no factor. And if Utah does well it is because USC has lost several starters (and the 4 star replacements were responsible for a possible upset) That's about it -isn't it cougars?

So if the Utes do manage to upset the Trojans in the Coliseum, it won't mean much, since USC is missing almost all of its key players.

Thanks for clarifying that.
