    Great win for the Utes! Just remember you have a big and first conference game to take care of before you get my Cougs!!! Good luck next week against the beavers, they will not roll over and play dead like the wildcats!!! See you on the 21st!!! After BYU's upset of a ranked team it should make the outcome less sure for the Utes especially since it is in Provo!!!

    Agree. This article was absolutely clueless. Just pass the ball 70 times a game. How do you think that plan will work in the PAC12? This was a real game, not a fantasy game.

    I would have thought it impossible to conclude the Ute's struggled when rushing the football since their totals, averages and every measurable showed tremendous efficiency.

    Kelvin York really didn't have much of an opportunity to prove himself. He rushed 4 times and broke 1 of the 4 for a 20something yd TD.

    And the "bad," Weber States game plan? What exactly was their game plan? What evidence did you see that told you they tried to outwit Utah? Or overpower physically? Do you think it was Weber's game plan to let Utah go up 56-0 before they chose to score a TD? Makes no sense. You could have touched on how stupid it is to run a hurry up and make your 3 and outs really quick...

    Very strange and seemingly un-proofread article. More poor coverage of the Utes by the DesNews.

    UteMiguel, spot on. Clueless article. I trust guys that have played and coached major football for 30+ years more than someone who says "Hey, this play worked, you should just do that every time!" Stop playing Madden on Easy and learn real football.

    You don't seem to understand that you have to commit to running the ball to keep the passing game open. If they just give up in the run and pass all the time, then pass opportunities will not be as open.

    "The hot afternoon at Rice Eccles Stadium wasn't even a contest. Utah proved once again to another in state team they are deserving of their PAC-12 affiliation."

    What a dumb opening paragraph. THEY PLAYED WEBER!!! Tell me the Utes are deserving after doing some PAC 12 damage, not beating a bogus squad from Weber.
