    Herriman vs Bingham scrimmage was scoreless for over an hour with Herriman moving the ball better early. Herriman had three picks and a fumble recovery and didn't turn it over. The last few minutes Bingham broke a run but went backwards most the scrimmage. Binghams defense is better than there offense for sure. Herriman has a much stronger and deeper offensive line.and an incredible D line who shut out West Jordan. Not sure how many first downs West Jordan got but it couldn't have been more than 3. Should be a great game with Bingham and I wouldn't expect a ton of offense in that game. Both teams will have to open up there offense with passes because running will be tough sledding.

    Im not sure what you consider a tie, but Bingham scored 2 touchdowns and herriman didn't even get close to scoring. They only got 1 first down that I can remember and it was on a pass. I thought Herriman was supposed to have the best line in the state this year. Looked like they have a lot of work to do. Bingham seemed to control the line of scrimmage. Don't get me wrong that is going to be a great game week 2, but that scrimmage was no tie.

    adwight - I agree 100% with your assessment. Herriman did scrimmage Bingham 2 weeks ago and the result was a tie. Of course it doesn't mean a whole bunch...but that will be an exciting game to watch.

    Herriman will have a top 3 offensive line this year and it may be the best in Utah...only time will tell. My hope is that Herriman will have the strength and skill on the offensive line to enable them to run and pass on any team.

    Bingham will be an awesome barometer for how the rest of the season will go.

    Herriman is going to be a great team but they will need to be able to throw to win it all. Bingham is too well coached and tough to simply think you can line up and run straight at them. They will be herrimans toughest test. If they can be more balanced they have a shot to win it all.

    This should be an awesome year for the Mustangs. Aug 28 at Bingham, Sep 12 vs Lone Peak, Sep 19 at Jordan, Oct 3 vs American Fork and Oct 24 at Pleasant Grove will be the five highlight games that will determine the season and the post season direction.

    Look for Herriman to win Region 4 outright this year and finally make it to Rice-Eccles with wins over West and Alta in the playoffs.

    Still have to play the games...at West Jordan will be an interesting away opener as the Jaguars have improved. A home game against Hunter and an away game against rival Riverton will provide some incredibly exciting games for the Mustangs.

    Herriman has 8 starters returning from one of the best offenses last year. Herriman has 5 starters returning on defense but has upgraded a few positions from last year.

    Herriman should be in the mix for a state title this year. Herriman will be favored in every game it plays this except for Bingham. Only 2 teams played better than Herriman against Bingham last year...Valor Christian and Brighton. Look for Herriman to play rough and tough in every game...including Bingham.

    Region Championships - 2, not one. They Co-champs in 2012 and in 2013. This is not the first time Felt has missed that fact.
