Just to let you guys know. Seven Peak pass is for this game for free and I wonder how many Cougar Fans going to be there rooting for Beavers or no one. I'll be there.

Hopefully the Utes bounce back strong. Vegas says Utah by 7.5

Go Utes!!

Playing in the PAC means you have to be resilient. Like Loveridge pointed out, last year the team got a little discouraged after coughing up some losses, but there's just no room for that.

Delon Wright needs to be more assertive, offensively. His nature is to let the game come to him, and obviously he plays really well that way, but he also needs to step up and make some late-clock tough shots, which he's capable of doing. He has a great pivot move when penetrating that lets him pirouette away from the defender and attack the rim. He just needs to develop a back-down fade away jumper he can go to, while looking for cutters or open shooters.

After playing the 2nd best PAC team basically to a draw, Utah knows the early schedule's results weren't a fluke and they can play at this level.

The state's best team will be on display, yet again....Go Utes!

Pocatello, ID

I don't want to call this one a must win, but it is close, starting 0-2 at home would really be getting off on the wrong foot.

Time to bounce back get this win, then turn to Washington. Those teams are definitely beatable, but Utah has to prove that they can win on the road.

Let me guess, the Beavers are a juggernaut Pac team even though they lost to Coppin state and Akron LOL
