    @ PAC man

    Utah hasn't played Houston since 1978... Believe it or not but things, including the game of football, have dramatically changed since that time.

    Utah has never beaten Houston (0-4).

    btw, what happened to that amazing depth at quarterback that Kyle was bragging about last spring; didn't he claim that the Utes had TWO upper-echelon PAC 12 quarterbacks, plus some amazing talent backing them up???

    Regardless of how the ASU game turns out, Utah better be ready when they show up in Eugene the week following. The Ducks were embarrassed on national TV last night, and will be looking to put the beat-down on somebody to get that taste out of their mouth. Who better than the team who beat the team who beat them? This Oregon game, better than any other game on their schedule this year, will show what the Utes are made of.

    So utah is hoping asu plays their worst game of the year so that utah can barely beat them while playing the best they can possibly play? Good luck with that.


    Isn't that how you beat Houston? They missed two field goals in a 46-47 game.

    This is the same guy who wants a rematch with Utah because Utah is playing horriable with an injured QB. Priceless!

    Utah needs to play like we did against BYU and Stanford: win the turnover margin! If we do that then we will be in a good postion to win the game. If we have turnovers like we did aginst OSU, UCLA, @Arizona, and @USC then we'll get exposed.

    I am not confident after the last two games, but I'm hoping Wilson has truly healed and it's not just spin comming from Kyle. I'll be at the game, so we'll find out tomorrow.

    You're forgetting the other side of the equation. Utes have to have a Stanford type game, and ASU is going to have to have a "we're over looking this team" mentality like Stanford did. ASU isn't. We didn't against Washington State, we're not going to here!

    All the comments I've read about why Utah will lose tomorrow sound similar to the comments prior to the Utah/Stanford game. Arizona State is no Stanford and it's a home game so Utah can and should win this game assuming that Travis Wilson really is 100% or close to it. Go Utah!

    Looks to me like Stanford's loss to Utah is looking worse and worse!!! Kind of like BYU's two losses!!!

    Stanford just showed that they are a top 5 Program.
    After the Utah game I didn't hear anybody from Stanford making excuses, only compliments for Utah.
    Wilson is back, healthy.
    Gives me Hope.
    Go Utes!
    And Go Stanford.

    Whittingham has THREE wins against END of season top 10 teams(Stanford will be top 10 I'm assuming after their huge win over Oregon)

    Stanford 2013
    Alabama 2008
    TCU 2008

    Guess how many wins against end of season top 10 teams the coach down south has?

    Not one!

    And yes, I'll take a coach who can win huge games and then loses to bad teams sometimes(like you guys did to a Virginia team who only has one division 1 win - you) any day.

    Byu fans think that finishing 25th and 25th in consecutive years is better than finishing #1 and #60 in consecutive years because the first team has 2 top 25 wins.

    LOL. Since all they can ever get is a top 25 ranking(no undefeated season, no BCS glory)

    And just remember, Navy was good at football 30 years ago. No one cares. If they did, they'd be inviting byU and Navy to BCS conferences.

    ASU is too big - too strong - too fast for the utes.

    What makes you so sure stanford will finish in the top 10? They will more than likely lose to oregon... If oregon goes to the bcs championship game, a likely occurance, then stanford will default into the rose bowl where they will probably get unceremoniously pummeled by a superior ohio state team. That is at least 3 losses right there and no chance of being in the top 10. I'll give you this (Chris B.), you aren't afraid to make foolish comments and predictions, or maybe you truly believe them which makes it even sadder. LOL!

    I thought stanford was better than it is, but the loss to utah definately exposed them.

    utah should win because they are in the same conference as UCLA Stanford Oregon...
    ASU is going down, they aren't in a power conference like utah is... oh wait.

    Stanford 14 to 0 Oregon, 11 minutes left in 2nd... that means utah is the best!

    Mildred and Ernest were funny. Now there are too many of them on both sides and all of them lose the humor.

    I don't think ASU is too much more overall talented than Utah, but they are a little more consistent and better at closing games. ASU is favored, and should be, but Utah is definitely capable of beating them.

    Funny to read analysis of a game from someone who admittedly didn't watch it.

    Stanford isn't even a good of a team they will probably lose to Oregon which will prove how bad they is. We wood beat them easily if Utah did, because we usually beat utah, but they got lucky this year. Plus the refs help them.
