The 3 game stretch of Midd Tenn State, UNLV, and Savannah St will be brutal.
Making it through that stretch without a loss sureley will clinch a spot in the playoff.

I vote that UoU, who is currently nationally irrelevant, becomes locally irrelevant as it dodges dangerous BYU and USU games to battle with rivals such as Idaho State.

William Wallace

Do you mean the dangerous BYU Cougars who can't seem to ever beat the U. Honestly, where are your comments coming from. Say something "relevant" please.
Go Utes!!

Re: pleblian

Just wait until the P5 schools vote to only exclusively play each other. Savannah State will become BYU's new rival then.

Provo, UT


Utah is dodging BYU and USU so they can play the #1 SOS in the country which includes Michigan and Fresno who beat USU a few months ago.

BYU's SOS will come in at about #80 Mr. P

Utah has already proved their ownership of BYU and USU over the past dozen years.

Utah will go 7-5 and go to a great bowl game

byu and usu will continue to be irrelevant as the P5 continue to gain more autonomy and move towards our own division.

Go Utes!

West Point , UT

BYU 11-1
USU 9-3

Those are the only two that need to be mentioned as they are the only two who will be bowling and nationally ranked (relevant) at the end of the year (also interesting they aren't dodging each other either...only one team does that in this state). Other teams will shine their SOS trophy, sing carols, bake cookies, and look for another offensive coordinator who will be the spittin image of Chip Kelly in August and waiting in the unemployment line by December. But hey, at least he'll have his good buddy KW to talk to...lines always go faster when you're with friends.

Utah has the most to gain.

byu has nothing to gain, therefore they have nothing to lose.

Magna, UT

Sour, sour grapes my friends. You wouldn't understand what its like in the big boy leagues. Utes playing the only relevant game in town these days.

Salt Lake City, UT

Such jealousy from the byu fanatics desperately trying to seem relevant in futile fashion. I love it. A word of wisdom: don't throw stones if you live in a glass house. After getting owned 4 years in a row, losing 9 out of 12, including defeats such as 54-10 in Rice Eccles South, 48-24, and 52-21, and slipping out of any shimmer of a spotlight with a pathetic and snooze-fest schedule, don't hate on someone bigger and better than you. The more byu fans try to pull Utah down, the farther byu sinks into irrelevant oblivion.

"Sour, sour grapes my friends. You wouldn't understand what its like in the big boy leagues. Utes playing the only relevant game in town these days."

How exactly does being out of the PAC12 race midway through conference play and inviting the next executioner to town make Utah's games relevant? 2-7 teams are only relevant in the sugar plum fairy dreams of their fans.

Whatever helps you sleep at night. Let's talk at the end of the season when BYU is nationally ranked and you're trying to find grandma's old gingerbread recipe.

Syracuse, UT

So tell me uncle Rico, who exactly is the U's rival? And do they know they are?

Washington, UT

Uncle Rico better be wrong because Utah will only win 2 games a year then

@swizzle and U other utes bragging about SOS: one of the several hilarious events that will unfold in the next few years (and what is really happening now) is where U guys are forced to live in the past; something U guys accuse BYU fans of doing.

As the years flow like a river, and the utes are still at the bottom of the PAC, begging the state of Utah for more money to pay the few good players to sign on, U will all be still bragging about about what U accomplished in 2004, 2008, and those times U were able to barely squeeze out a victory in the game that really mattered the most to KW and company. Not much was accomplished before, or after.

And I'll be sitting back reading as many as I can, and LOL.

It's hilarious reading the comments from the coug fans who try to spin the fact that ending up in the top 25 polls simply by playing no one, actually matters. Memo to coug fans, finishing in the top 25 means absolutely nothing if you get there by playing nobody. You know you're irrelevant when you could go undefeated and still end up out of the top 10 in the country. There's a real possibility that BYU could experience that exact scenario with an undefeated season this year. That said, they'll still lose at least 2 or 3 games and won't finish in the top 25 anyway. Count on it.

"You know you're irrelevant when you could go undefeated and still end up out of the top 10 in the country."

The last time BYU went undefeated they were #1 in the country. That sounds relevant to me.

Louisville, KY

@ Riverton Cougar

"The last time BYU went undefeated they were #1 in the country. That sounds relevant to me."

Ha! That will never happen again. It is a guarantee that if BYU somehow does run the table this year, they will not be ranked in the top 10 final poll.

On the other hand, if Utah runs the table this year, it's a guarantee that we will be ranked #1 in the final poll. That is obviously a long shot (Dumb and Dumber type of long shot) but hey "So you're saying there's a chance!".

Football is in the air, I can smell it!!

@Riverton Cougar:
Because something that happened in 1984 is still relevant in 2014... All this talk about national relevance is fun and I enjoy all the trash-talking, but I'm not sure any team from Utah is going to be really relevant in 2014. USU has the best shot, since they're in a conference and if they're the highest-ranked G5 team they can get into a big-time bowl. Not the playoff, though, because of the somewhat weak schedule. BYU has a much weaker schedule and is independent, so they could have a 10-win season and nobody outside of Utah will care, and Utah has a while to go before they're level with everyone else in the PAC 12. My prediction: BYU and USU have 10+ wins, Utah goes 6-6 and finally gets a bowl game, USU ends up ranked higher than BYU but just outside the top 15 (they were ranked #16 after 11 wins with a much weaker schedule in 2012, so it could happen) and the media and the fans of BYU and Utah continue in their condescending ways and treat USU like they're still the doormat they were years and years ago.

BYU and Utah State will make the Utah proud.
Utah will continue to be the doormat of the PAC 12
