    Chris B, claims the utes have an NFL calber defense.

    Utes 35
    Arizona 0

    Utah isn't very good and hasn't beaten anyone good this year so I expect them to lose.

    Utah Fan,

    I sometimes wonder the same thing. After graduating from high school I went to Snow College, who historically has a great NJCAA football team (especially for offense). I remember the time of possession being heavily in favor of Snow's opponent most of the time, but realized that that was because Snow's offense often scored so quickly that they took so little time off the clock. Their defense wasn't as good, but was good enough to keep them from scoring enough to win (often Snow won by a lot).

    Anyway, it is unknown how well Utah's defense will fare against Arizona's offense. If they can't contain Arizona's offense, Utah will be in big trouble. However, Utah has only lost to USC at home this year, and unless I'm mistaken Arizona hasn't won on the road.

    I wonder if Arizona's defense statistics are poor because they score so often, thus giving the ball to the opposing team more often.

    Anyway, I will be at the game with my daughter cheering on the Utes. Go Utes!

    It's do or die for the Utes. I think they will win this, especially playing at home. It would be nice to win the last 2 and go to a bowl. A lot of pluses to going to a bowl; extra practices and one more game most noteably. I would never have imagined being 4-6 at this point. Utah State, Oregon State and UCLA were all very win-able games.

    GO UTES >------>
