This may be a tough team for the utes to beat since the bottom feeder has a higher RPI than u. That grueling preseason home schedule may help a little bit. WSU 67 utes 63. CB can write it down.

4 in a row!

Good luck today

Go Utes!

It is really interesting that your are here talking smack about RPI, have you seen your beloved cougs conference opponents RPIs? Utes win by 16.

That's a bold claim. Sagarin has Utah ranked 58 and Washington St. 164. Plus Utah is pretty good in the JMHC

I expect an easy win for the Utes, at home.
Down Under, I expect a follow up to your prediction after the game. Go Utes.

RPI rankings at this stage are, more than anything else, merely a statement overall caliber of opponents, regardless of how good/bad said team in fact actually is.. In byu's case, they managed to barely beat Stanford/Texas during the season's first five game, yet Texas on neutral-court, before either of them got up to speed..And neither of them was ranked when byu played them, since they were not at that point in the season good enough to be ranked..Excepting perhaps usu, byu proved merely how utterly incapable they are to beat another decent team, til perhaps their recent come-from-behind home win against SMC....They've yet to beat any opponent good enough at the time to be ranked when they in fact actually played them.

Regarding currently ranked it changes nothing, whatsoever, regarding the fact they weren't good enough to deserve to be ranked by Game 5 of the season and continues byu's currently uninteruppted winless streak against "currently playing well enough at this point-of-matchup in order to be currently ranked" opponents!

A currently more accurate measure of their current overall prowess is BPI!

We'll roll the cougars, just like we did the small conference cougars we played earlier in the year.

Utah 70
WSU 50

Love these Pac 12 Utes and what coach K is doing!

Onward and upward to Pac 12 glory
