Bronco will be facing Chris Peterson for the 2nd time this season. Fun matchup.

Salt Lake City, UT

With a lame duck coach and not a solid practice plan leading up to the game.....I take the Cougs!

Should be an interesting game with Chris Peterson calling the shots. Go Cougars!!

Now charlie Peterson can loose to byu two times this year.

Surfers Paradise, AU

Tuiasosopo will be coaching UW. The huskies will run all over our D with Sankey. Lots of time off between now and the game. Hope Hill can stay sharp during that time. Poor offensive strategy has kept this team from winning games against ND and Wisc. Come on Anae, lets have some fun.

Ogden, UT

Uh....the article states that Marques Tuiasosopo will be the interim coach for Washington during the bowl game and not Chris Peterson.

Please read the article first before commenting

Way to go Cougs! You just as we'll go win one against the mighty PAC 12, then you can shut certain BYU haters up. Seriously , the Cougs have to win this one if they have any hope of a top 10 ranking next year.

Re stumper

Please be realistic.

This year many fans clamored that BYU is a Top 15 school and we proved we couldnt beat a 19 th ranked Wisconsin or 24 ranked ND. They were bigger and more dominant. Heck we lost to the team up North that went 2-7 in thier league. Say what you want, but between the lines they beat us. Again.

So many Cougar fans are delusional and put too huge of expectations on the young men that play at BYU.

The Top 10 teams are very very good. We are a long ways from a Top 10 team. Let's try and get inside the top 25 first. Just saying

Ogden, UT

Best of luck to the Cougars. They'll need it. Chris Petersen + Bishop Sankey + Keith Price = 21 point favorites. They'll get a little taste of what Utah has to go through week after week. Time to take the medicine Cougars.

You're kidding right? Please tell me that was just a joke. I hope that was just a joke. Wake up 1984 was a long time ago.

I'm certain Washington is less than excited about this bowl or opponent.

Centerville, UT

@Horrible Stumper

Top 10? That ain't happening anytime soon.


Yeah, I bet Washington would rather sit at home for two years than go to this bowl game. Get real.

Phoenix, AZ

Ute fans commenting on BYU's bowl game is equivalent to BYU fans commenting on a Ute article when Utah loses.

I would guess that most BYU fans couldn't care less what Washington thinks. But I'm pretty sure most Cougar fans appreciate 'Ur couch perspective and interest on these matters. LOL


"This year many fans clamored that BYU is a Top 15 school.."

No they didn't, an absolute delusional fabrication on your part. Please find me one comment that supports this.

I do believe IF BYU had beaten Virginia, Utah, Wisconsin and ND they could have been ranked around 15 or so but NO ONE ever stated or clamored "that BYU IS a Top 15 school".

The only delusion going on is you making stuff up.

Try harder.

Lindon, UT

The excuses from SLC will start immediately. "The coaching change caused Washington to lose" "BYU only won the game is because Sark quit". "Washington didn't have time to prepare". This will happen for sure. Utah fans will cry when BYU beats PAC 12 power Washington.

Ok, an explanation. I have read several comments where BYU wants to be a top 10 team. The Cougs strength of schedule next year will not get it done even if they were to go undefeated next year. Next years preseason ranking will be determined by how they finish this year. If their goal is to be in the top 10 next year they will have to spank Washington in the bowl game. Do I believe they can do it? No...but I do think they can lay the ground work for the next season. The Utes have the strength of schedule to end up in the top 10 if they were to go undefeated, but based on their season this year we know that ain't happening for several years to come. if we can use Fresno and Northern Illinois as examples, the Aggies would have to go undefeated and beat everyone by 2-3 touchdowns to get a sniff of the top 10. Just say in' the Cougs are making progress, the Utes not so much.

Layton, UT

PG #1 FAN,

I'm confident that excuses will not be necessary.


I can't believe BYU fans are still talking about a top ten ranking.Based on the latest ranking, BYU lost to every top 25 opponent they played this year. They are going into next year with a lot of holes to fill on both sides of the ball due to graduation and a schedule that was more difficult than this year. A taste of reality would go a long way into building BYU's credibility.

"I'm certain Washington is less than excited about this bowl or opponent."

I guess that says it all about the stature of the Huskies compared to the Utes; we all know that the Utes would be ecstatic to be playing in any bowl.

Lindon, UT

@Blue Coug:

Read the article, which states Peterson will take over coaching duties after the bowl game. Am interim coach will coach WA for the bowl game.

Roy, UT

All I want for Christmas is....world peace, and all I want for this bowl game is....to fight hunger...oh, and one more thing, would like to start out 2014 with BYU having beaten Washington in the Bowl game, by a sizable margin,like say, 50-7! That's all I want. Santa are you getting this?
