    Our rested superior pitching will prove the difference in making it a clean sweep.

    Didn't think this one would ever swing Utah's way; first run scored on a missed call at the plate, Utah's first run was from a ball that hit the top of the outfield wall and came back in play. But some really clutch hitting in the bottom of the 7th got it done. Bravo.

    Went to the game. BYU stranded way too many base runners. When this happens you let the other team hang around and increase your chances of getting burned in the end.

    Isn't that typical of a Cougar fan? If the Ute's are ahead after 7 innings, the game should continue. Nice!

    @Dew Cougar - NCAA softball only plays 7 innings.

    @DEW Cougars

    Are you serious? Or do you not watch a lot of softball/baseball?

    I thought the game should have continue after Utah took the lead in the 7th frame. That is stupid rule for this tournament.

    And once again, Utah wins and byu loses.

    In nearly all sports, its becoming almost automatic.

    I love my Pac 12 membership and the superiority that comes with it over mid majors!

    This should be a fun game.

    Go Utes!

    It's possible that BYU and Utah could play three times.

    If the loser of today's game beats the winner of the Miss. St./Fordham game, and then wins the rematch, BYU and Utah would play a third game to determine the regional champion.

    Of course, today's winner will be in the driver's seat, needing to win only one more game to advance to the Super Regional.

    Go Cougars!

    Agreed. A fun bracket. I would like to see my Cougs play an easier team, but two good teams going at it will be an exciting 'watch'. Actually, they could play three games because the loser of this one will have to beat the other twice to satisfy double-elimination. That, of course, depends on both teams reaching the final two on the bracket. Who knows, perhaps one of the other two teams might strike a blow. Best of success. Go Cougs!

    What a bracket the committee created. Arch rivals together where they could play twice and one getting revenge on the other to take it all and advance. It's a fun two days for both teams.
