    Considering byu has the worst passer rating QB in the entire nation, I'm as worried for this game as I was about the Weber game.

    And Weber's QB could actually throw the ball.

    Actually these two teams are in amazingly similar situaltions. Each have a solid win and an embarrasing loss. Each have serious questions on one side of the ball. Each is trying to prove that they are the team that beat the good team, not the ones that lost to the bad ones.

    BYU lost to a virginia team that proceeded to get poinded by Oregon the following week and Utah lost to a Oregon St, a team that lost to FCS Eastern Washington in Week 1.

    BYU Pounded a then 15th ranked Texas in Week 2, and Utah beat a good USU in Week 1.

    BYU Has a very good defense, but has questions on offense. In spite of their 679 yard output last week they have a QB who's only completed 33% of his passes. Utah's offense has scored 78 points and racked up 989 yards in its two FBS games. On the other side though. the Utes defense has given up 77 points and 978 yards.

    I can't wait for the game.

    As a Mormon and one who supports the no Sunday play rule, I have zero qualms about possibly playing past midnight. I don't think its the least bit hypocritical or wrong. In my personal life I have never rushed out to McDonalds at 12:01 AM Monday morning as a way to get around not shopping on Sunday. To me, I treat it as a Sunday until I wake up the next morning.

    I'm guessing many Mormon Ute fans have purchased things past midnight on Sunday morning and yet don't consider themselves sinners. Hypocrites?

    Will be a relatively easy win this Saturday.

    Bronco and crew have shown they get too emotional about this game and then when the game plan doesn't go exactly like the thought(which no game plan ever does) they self destruct.

    Van Noy, Hoffman, and others will never know what it feels like to beat their rivals.

    That must be very embarrassing.

    6. This is the most enjoyable one for me. I go back a long way - season tickets over 40 years)
    And this is the first time I can recall where both fan base (at least the more rabid ones) honestly believe their team will win. (To me most previously said it it's a runaway game one team is more likely to win with the other fan base hoping it will be a close game where they have a chance.) I know personally three stranger saw my clothing and said We are going to kill you this year. No mercy, No letting up, etc. My response, "I hope it's nothing like 54-10 - that would be a whipping not soon forgotten."
    7. BYU will never play on Sunday. Sounds good to some but we don't really mean it.
    8. The team with the most points at the end of the game Saturday night or Sunday morning.
