    Cause thankfully, beating Utah is not everything. You have bragging rights for the next 3 years; I won't deny that. But I am still going to enjoy watching BYU, and I hope Utah wins out.

    54 - 10 don't get too cocky so you won the game, but easily could have lost it, the funny thing is the voters for the last few years have had BYU ranked higher than Utah, which has been the case this year as well. You can have the game I'd rather have the higher ranking at the end of the year.

    And Scott maybe Utah should start playing their starters on special teams as well since they've had already 2 players go 100+ yards for touchdowns against them. 1 was called back for questionable call or it would have cost your team a win. So stop with the stupid comments, BYU has had many more injuries than the Utes and still plug them in and do just fine, they look pretty deep to me. In fact how many lineman and linebackers does BYU play a game compared to Utah? If Whittingham goes out on defense their defense has a major drop off, that tells you their dept. So next time you might want to think before you speak.

    To BYU fans:
    Washington has lost 10 years in a row to Oregon. Now that sucks. And Utah has never beaten Washington in their history. So UW is clearly superior to Utah. But BYU has beaten UW several times in the last few years. Therefore BYU must be superior to Utah.

    Of course I will. Not having Utah on the schedule is a boon to BYU. While the games were entertaining, I would never risk attending one at RES for safety reasons. There are certain fans on both sides of the rivalry that have set examples of the lowest of the low that humanity has to offer. BYU fans throwing garbage on the officials is reason enough for BYU to never schedule the Utes again. I won't go into the myriad of behaviors that happen from the other fan base, though they have been similarly disappointing. Just cancel the remaining three contract games and I personally will be thrilled.

    Next year the teams won't face each other. Both teams will be far better for it. BYU has a legit shot at the playoffs and Utah at the PAC12 championship if each team continues its current trend. Playing each other early has kept both teams from reaching their potential these past two years. While BYU has lost the last several games, the physicality of the game likely cost Utah two to three wins in the PAC12.

    4 in a row and 9 of the last 12.

    Enjoy the next 3 years, I know I will.

    BYU special teams have been exciting. If there hadn't been holding calls on some of those returns BYU would have beat Utah.

    Sounds more like a weak recruiting group with zero bench talent, Bronco needs his starters to patch up the weak teams.
