    Hindsight is 20-20. Thanks for the fun, Chris B. Don't go away, through. Lots of smak to talk and we'll miss you. See U in the Kraft Bowl.

    There is a better chance Utah wins 1000 to 0 than UCLA wins 45 to 17.

    Get ready to watch Utah take control of the Pac 12 south.

    Your bruins will be in the rear view mirror in just a few hours

    Go Utes!

    That's delusional thinking. I picked UCLA 45 Utah 17, after watching the weather report tonight, I am not sure either team will get to 30 points. I still like my Bruins to win this one. Good luck to your Utes, here is to a great game. But UCLA is not overrated. On a clean field I would stick with my 45 - 17 call.

    Just pretend every team you play is BYU and you'll win more than you would otherwise. Good luck, many of the Pac 12 teams look at you like you look at BYU and they play like it. When one believes they are superior and plays like it, performance improves. Utes historically got that down for at least one game a year, now for the other 11 games....

    Utah 37
    UCLA 13

    The Utes have owned UCLA in recent history. Utah is making the leap to the upper echelon of the Pac 12 this year. That, and UCLA is overrated. Pac 12 South Champs and Rose Bowl here we come!

    The offense looked great so far. If that continues tomorrow and if our defense starts playing like 2011 then Utah should win:

    Utah 38
    UCLA 30

    UCLA 45
    Utah 17

    But it doesn't end here, that's why we play the games. ChrisB, you have thrown up on everyone here for weeks about Utah's schedule, wins, predictions, etc. Yet, it has been the same post over and over and over again on every article. I am sensing some fear with this game for you. You can't give more than just a prediction. I gave mine too, and it means nothing until the scoreboard lights go out. I know you keep saying you will be there. Enjoy, I hope you have a great time. Have some hot chocolate for me. I will be sitting home, watching it on my TV. I will look for you on the TV. Does it matter if you are there or not. Oh and by the way, don't forget your black T-Shirt, Sweatshirt, and jacket. I heard they are expecting a black out. In fact, where a black sweatshirt with a UCLA shirt underneath. That way you can walk out respectfully if my Bruins pull off the win I think they will.

    First off - I admit Utah is the best football team in the state and you own BYU, so no need to come back with old tired BYU smack. Congratulations. You have undisputed (from me) claim to that. (Which is a sad commentary on football in the state given what's likely about to happen in Pac12 conference play)

    Having said that, Chrissy is hands down just the funniest commenter I've ever seen in any forum. Doesn't matter what likely reality says. She sticks with her dreams. I'll hand her that.

    COS, good comment. There must be some mistake. Surely Chrissy will explain.

    Today Lane Kiffin, tomorrow Kyle Whittingham???

    Interesting comment by Whittingham:

    “We have a bunch of high-quality, top-25-type teams coming through here on a regular basis, and so that's been the biggest reason for that,”

    After which the DNews lists the PAC12 teams that came to Utah in 2011 and 2012. None were top-25 teams.

    Whoever wins Thursday wins the PAC 12 south.

    Chris B is picking UCLA to win the South?

    Old ball coach:

    Darren Lucy says he didn't see Utah in Vegas this week.

    They are going home this week. Believe me, going to Provo is like going out of state, it's a whole time-warp thing.

    Looking forward to a huge conference foe tomorrow. On to bigger and better things!

    Go Utes! Onward and Upward!!

    Its just as I said. Which part don't you understand. Utah will win and the winner(Utah) of the game will win the Pac 12 south. Why are you confused?

    How much home field advantage can you expect from a high school stadium?

    Did the Utes have practice in Vegas this week? What's with "making themselves home again." Don't you have to leave the Utah in order to come home again?....

    Whoever wins Thursday wins the PAC 12 south.

    And I like our chances at home!

    Get it done utes!

    Win Thursday and win the PAC 12 south.

    And for those who say Utah won't win, you people also said Utah wouldn't beat usu and wouldn't beat byu

    And those turned out just as I said they would.

    Utah 27
    Ucla 24

    Winner WILL win the PAC 12 south and play Oregon in the prestigious PAC 12 title game

    And since Oregon is headed to the national title, even losing the PAC 12 title game would put Utah in the rose bowl.

    I love my PAC 12 membership.

    Rose bowl very much alive!
