Too easy!

Utah about to do what no other team in Utah could do: beat our rival

After watching the PAC 12 go 10-0 against the WAC 2.0 and WAC- like byu, shows how big of a gap there is even between the 10th best PAC 12 team Utah and the best WAC teams(byu, usu, and Boise)

A small fish in a big pond is still bigger than a big fish in a WAC little pond

The only program with a national future in Utah,

Is UTAH

Go utes

Maybe in will end 7 - 0. Turnovers are costly.

This team has shown a ton of promise. As close as we were in several key games, games that weren't close our first couple years with the big boys proves we aren't that far off from competing for PAC 12 titles. And whittingham is the man for the job. He has taken us to national glory before. And he will do so again.

Wow! Look at the that throw game! Quarterback controversy next spring?

Lifelong Ute, don't read too much into it. 1-7 (looking like 2-7 now) this year shows we still have a ways to go in the conference. Every win is a good sign, though. Every year will be a new adventure, as will every game.

Utah prevailing in the Pulte Homes Cellar Dweller Bowl.

With a victory here the Utes will finish out of the cellar in their three year reign in the PAC-10.2.

Congratulations to all the loyal Ute fans who have stuck it out. And to coach Whittingham

Another Saturday watching Utah play in the Big Leagues and checking to see how byu is doing vs the minor leagues. Go Utes.

Man, if we would have played like this all year, we would be playing for the National Championship! We are clearly the best team in the Nation!

Anyone else perfectly happy we are in the PAC 12, even if its 3 years of catching up? These teams from the PAC 12 would win the mountain west conference:
Utah
USC
Ucla
Arizona
Arizona state
Washington
Washington state
Oregon
Oregon state
Stanford

Recruiting has been improving compared to our mountain west recruiting. In fact, the last couple years we have averaged #6 recruiting in the PAC 12. Within 1-2 more years when those guys are upper classmen we will be at least an average PAC 12 team. And that's something to be very very proud of.

Onward and upward

@Chris B:

If CU is our big rival, do you post comments in the Denver Post about the CU rivalry?

If CU is our big rivalry, why can't I name a single player?

If CU is our big rival, why do USU and BYU matter to you at all?

Does anyone in the PAC-12 consider us a big rival?

Down here in OC, no one cares one Whitt about the U. We're not yet even in the conversation. Next year, we'll be rated just above CU in the pre-season polling. We've done nothing this year to enhance our reputation and, if stars matter in recruiting, we have no one creating any excitement among the PAC-12 for the future. A kid both the U and BYU recruited recommitted from Alabama in favor of USC - not the U. We're cashing our PAC-12 checks in relative anonymity.

Admit it: BYU is still our biggest rival and USU is a bigger rival for us than CU.

I wish it were different, but wishing won't make it so.

Dres over 1,000 yards on the season with that one. First Ute since D. Reed I think. Now only 6 yards away from single season record of 100 yard games. Congrats.

Scary moment there. Would hate to have to burn a redshirt for 10 minutes of a game. Would hate even worse to see a serious injury to a guy that's worked as hard as Schulz has.

2013 Ute Seniors SWEEP byU 4-0
Ogden, UT

Pretty clear we would win this game. Colorado isn't bad enough to lose 54-10 or anything, but we are clearly a step above them.

Go utes

Gotta admit that was a pretty perfect play call with the fake bubble screen on 4th down, even if McGill did play it horribly.. Shouldn't matter here, though, as the Buffs failed on the onsides attempt.

Beatiful Saturday for a rivalry win!

Go ahead and celebrate, Trev. You deserve it. Ended the game this year just as he started it last year.

Utah holds on to end the season on a high note, and the W helps Whittingham make his case for NOT getting laid off. Should be interesting to see what happens in the off-season. Thanks for another year, Utes.

Now the utes can rest up for their bowl game...um maybe next year?
