    It's time for BYU to bench Heaps. He has had 1 or 2 acceptable games out of the many games he's started. They barely won last week. It should have been a blow out for Byu but they didn't convert time after time. I'd like to see James Lark see the field and see what he can do. He was amazing in high school and used basically the same offense. I think Byu should give him a shot instead of settling for sub par performances from the passing game

    It will be truly interesting to see how each team overcomes their problems they showed in the first game. Jake has to execute quicker and he has to stop staring down his receivers. I watched his head and he stared them down almost every time. The same thing happened last night with Arizona against OSU and the QB had trouble completing passes.

    I've been looking forward to this game for two years now. I'm going with a good friend who grew up in Texas, has many relatives who attended UT, and is not LDS but is still going to wear a BYU t-shirt.

    This game will be a struggle for the boys in blue, with a large hostile crowd and some of the best athletes money can buy. Last week the defense looked great, let's hope that the offense has been able to make the needed adjustments.

    I want to see BYU and Utah go into their game next week both 2-0. What a great national hoopla that will be.

    JJ DiLuigi will have a big day and the Cougars will squeak out another win. 24-23. Mark it down. Or don't. I don't really care what you do.

    By the way, Utes are gonna beat the Trojan men as well. 24-17. Mark that down too.

    Go out and Represent the 801 boys.

    I'm convinced that Texas is the best team on our schedule. But with a few lucky breaks this game could go the Cougs direction. I'm a believer in Bronco's D. I don't think Texas will get over 21 points. But the question is - will the Cougs offense execute like they did at the New Mexico Bowl or like they did in Oxford?

    I'm hoping there's more chemistry on the offensive side in Austin than there was in Oxford. Go Cougs!
