Can't wait!

Go Utes!

East Salt Lake City, Utah

Travis Wilson's passing percentage before the injury: 62% ... Utah 4-2
After the injury: 32% ... Utah 1-5

Let's hope he's healthy all season and takes his game to next level.

Idaho State 35
Utah 17

Don't write it down

So starts the tough schedule.

edmond, OK

Not sure I understand the excitement about having a returning quarterback with
a horrible record!??? The Ute's brought in Kendal Thompson from one of the
top programs in the country to give the Ute's a new look and turn things around.
It sounds to this okie that as long as Wilson is at the helm, Ute's can expect more
of the same :(

In today's college football a QB in this offense needs the ability to extend a play
With their feet..... Wilson CANNOT do that.... Ute fans better hope Thompson takes
the helm SOONER than later! 👍

South Jordan, UT

I am reminded of. 66-0 game against this team while I was still in college. This team gave up in at halftime. Would rather beat BYU for a fifth straight time than play the Bengals.

Salt Lake City, UT

Should be a nice tune up game for the utes. Here's hoping Idaho makes a good show of it!
Go College Football!

What a great day; College football is upon us! Tonights game will be a glorified scrimage; but it's the only one Utah will have.

Go Utes!

if utah can pull this off it will be a big win for the program.

Central, UT


It must be really difficult for you that the number 2 QB at Oklahoma is the number 2 QB at Utah. Get over it.

Arlington, VA


Idaho State 35
Utah 17

Don't be silly, Utah will keep it closer than that.

The Utes book end their schedule with two of the worst teams in college football.

But at least they'll have plenty of time for R&R during bowl season.

Let's go beat up a weak team from and Po-dunk Idaho and call ourselves great. We're big boys now.

Anybody know how i can watch the game on TV? I have directv?(like most people do)

Does Buffalo Wild wings broadcast it?

We'll save most of our NASCAR plays for when we play big teams, but should be fun to watch the guys run all over lowly ISU.

Utah 55

Utah WILL go 7-5 and go to the best bowl of anyone in Utah.

Your "NASCAR" offense will spend most of the season in the pits undergoing repairs.

Still waiting for your list of 7 teams that you claim the Utes will beat in 2014.

Your silence is deafening.

Kearns, UT

Idaho state can throw the ball around a little bit.. but still no match! Utah doesn't score more than 50 points

Spokane Ute

SEC Rules stated

"Let's go beat up a weak team from and Po-dunk Idaho and call ourselves great. We're big boys now."
That's absolutely commical considering that SEC team will play Furman, Presbyterian, Nicholls State, Lamar and UT Martin in non-conference games this year.

Too funny!

I'm admittedly an unabashedly biased Cougar, but more than anything I'm glad to hear Wilson's health is to the point where he can play again. I never like seeing a kid from any school end a career on an issue like what threatened him last year. This might be old news for all of you, but outside of football season, I really don't pay attention to what's going on. Wish him the best of luck and for maybe the first time ever, I agree with a Ute coach in that I'm so excited for the season to start I can barely see straight.

Lindon, UT

I'm excited to have the football season get started but I'm hard pressed to count this game as a real start. The Utes should blow out ISU but we won't know much more about the team than we do now. Weber St. was the same way last year. Good luck Utes. Hope you can get to a bowl this year.

I am impressed with all the comments from all around the country, but don't understand why they are trashing the Utes. Its true that ISU won't be much competition for the Utes. Still a win is a win. I predict Utah 32, ISU 14. Go UTES!
