    I would say give the Defense an A, while special teams a B. The missed PAT and FG were embarrassing.

    The "A" grade the Utes deserve was withheld by the polls, but is inevitable.

    Norm went to the tight end 3 of 4 plays in a row late in the first half without BYU adjusting, leading to a touchdown. HOF vs overrated coordinator.

    Hey Andy, I love your show down here in southern utah sports radio 1210! although you are a little BYU biased. I can't wait to hear your analysis of last nights game on Monday. GO UTES!

    I agree. Where is Duckhunter, Tom in Califormia and Big Soccer tonight?

    Way to "man up" Sammy G.

    I attended the game tonight, and while it was brutal for Cougar fans to watch, I wanted to congratulate the Ute nation for a great win. I wish we could have honored the rivalry by being more competitive. Best of luck in the PAC 12. You earned your invitation to that league. Make the state proud. This Cougar, though wounded, will cheer your team's success this season. I have a new respect for the program. Stay classy SLC.

    Congrats to the Utes for looking like the team that really wanted this one.

    Can't expect to win when you spot your opponent 3 TDs---for free, even.

    What a laugher. Hope the Utes do as well in their upcoming Pac-12 games. At least one team might make this state proud.

    Funny thing, some of the really dumb plays in this game were happening all day in other college games. Kind of like this game was a synopsis of the college game day. Heh.

    Play calling on offense was amazing. The right call nearly every time. Had reggie dunn not slipped on the slant-and-go, the margin could have been even bigger. I was a little shocked at how much ground we gave up when byu rushed the ball in the first half. Good thing their coaches are committed to the pass even when their running game is obviously better.

    Nice to have that little byu bump in the road in our rearview mirror. That team seemed bent on causing some serious injury to the ute players with all their cheap shots.

    Glad to be a ute!

    Thanks team!

    Good luck to the cougars

    I just wonder if Bronco is convinced this year that the better team won..... (that was the worst comment for bulletin board material Bronco could have made in regards to losing 17-16 last year, not smart)

    I can't believe the speed Utah has, those special teams players fly down the field, so fun to watch. I think the problems in Provo are due to hiring an offensive coordinator who has never been an offensive coordinator and having a head coach who would rather be the defensive coordinator. Apo is a talented player.

    Thanks to the Provo fans who are decent enough to come on the message boards and say "congrats", I always try to do that when it goes the other way.

    I don't ever want to hear that Jake Heaps is a better qb than Jordan Wynn. Not even close.

    I'm pretty sure Apo and Hoffman would agree too.

    Where do I sign up to be a Ute fan? Just kidding but still congrats on the win.

    I guess the offensive line depth and the poor quarterback and the young running backs did ok tonight.
