Cougars fans making the trip to Wisconsin... I am jealous!
Camp Randall is the coolest college stadium I have been to... enjoy it!

Some of the classiest fans you will meet... the band even plays your school fight song before the game. Go early and enjoy the grounds, lots to see, do, and eat.


Buttercup is at the top of the article, but Jump Around is a sidebar? Jump Around is very intimidating, no one in attendance will ever forget the experience! You can't feel the ground shaking in a youtube video or understand the noise so loud you can't hear the person next to you yelling. I've been told it can be heard and felt all over Madison.

Good luck Cougars, pull off the upset!

sorry but the Cougars this week have the edge since Wisconsin is higher rank then the team the Utah will be playing. Then again it depends on who wins their games.

Go Utah
Go Utah State


Couldn't be more proud of my Cougars.

A chance to play a team from the second best conference in the country.

All ESPN experts disagree with you about the second best conference. And on that note, did you know Utah has 2 top 10 teams on their schedule and 2 more top 25 teams? And this schedule will be consistent.

in byu's "hardest schedule ever" byu has exactly 1 top 25 team, and barely 1.


But its a good think you guys don't have a schedule like ours, guess how many bronco has against END of season top 10 teams in his entire time at byU?


Whittingham already has 2, with Stanford likely be a third.

You guys have a fun little regional program, with a "national following" to the extend there are Mormons across the country.

Enjoy being the second best program in the state, you've earned it over Utah STate!

@Chris B.

BYU is global as in planet Earth. Regional would be defined as a team that is only followed by a narrow local audience such as in Utah's circumstance. Sport fans in China don't know that Utah is now a part of the PAC12, but they do know about BYU football. The only time they even see Utah is when BYU has them scheduled. BYU has the advantage of being independent and having worldwide broadcasts of its sports.

Wisconsin is the biggest challenge BYU has faced this year. I do expect BYU will have a fair share of false start penalties. However, I expect that the Cougars will thrive overall taking down the Badgers by slowing the run down and by running around Wisconsin's sides instead of going straight. BYU has got to tire out Wisconsin's big guys by getting a lot of first downs in the first quarter.

Go Cougars!!


@Chris B.

My comment of Wisconsin being in the second best conference was actually for you, for I knew it would generate a reaction.

I truly know that the SEC is second best and that the PAC-12 is first. And you're absolutely right, it's a good thing BYU doesn't have a schedule like Utah because we would in fact be 0-8 right now.

But that doesn't take away the fact that I can still cheer for my Cougars no matter what. I don't know why you are even commenting on BYU articles in the first place. Before you even say it, I have commented on 3-4 Ute articles and that's it. But you have on just about every BYU article and your purpose is to put BYU fans down.

But it doesn't matter how superior Utah is over BYU I will still cheer them on no matter their schedule.

Chris B. I'm sure that you probably see Oregon's loss to Stanford as a sign from above that the utes are the best because they beat Stanford. But oh, wait, the utes still have to play Oregon. I can't wait for that one.

Move on Chris. The utes stink. They are irrelevant anywhere in the country or world, except Salt Lake county. They get up for certain games then lose to teams they are supposed to beat. The wheels almost always come off of their season early, and all the BYU haters such as yourself are relegated to sniping at BYU's heels and trying to denigrate the fact that, despite certain losses, BYU tends to rebound and have do well.

But you still have basketball to look forward to. Wait, no you don't.

Did you know that BYU is 3-2, while Utah is only 1-4 versus BCS teams?

Did you know that BYU is ranked 27th, while Utah is only ranked 45th in the BCS?

Did you know that putting lipstick on a pig doesn't fool anybody?

Obviously, not.

Stanford made Utah looked real good last night against Oregon! I'm hoping they won't make Stanford look bad when they play them. They have a huge opportunity to make a statement if they can duplicate what the Cardinals did last night. On the flip side, if they get blown away, I would feel bad for their fans, including all the BYU haters on their side!

Btw, great opening for the BYU Cougar basketball team tonight against Weber State! Those wildcats were pretty resilient!
