    “UW literally needed a miracle to beat Utah in a game in which the Huskies lead at the half, were tied after 3, and outscored Utah 10-7 in the 4th?

    Whose fault was it that Utah's offense could only produce a measly 22 yards in their final 2 possessions with the game on the line?”

    UW scored 10 points in the final 00:58 to beat us by merely 3 points on a final play FG—That’s the very definition of “miracle”, period.

    Go Utes!

    “Washington has beaten U by a combined 10 points in the last 2 seasons.
    Utah has only beaten BYU by a combined 7 points in the last 2 seasons.

    We’ve held the lead against UW & have held it late in the game against them.....byu-p has held the lead against us for precisely zero seconds.

    Don’t kid yourself. That game wasn’t even remotely as close as the final margin would otherwise indicate.

    Per typical, byu-p never led for even a single second. We annihilated byu-p statistically. It was 16-0 midway through & then 19-6 w/merely 3 minutes remaining.

    Odds of them driving 91 yds to victory in the final 1+ min were astronomical &, sure enough, they managed just 6 yds in 4 downs.

    We then, per typical, took a knee to conclude the game & did so directly in front of byu-p’s endzone.

    Thank goodness for all of our UNFORCED mental errors via penalties, otherwise we blow byu-p out, period.

    “Yet, you're claiming that Utah's talent is on par with Washington's talent,
    while BYU's talent pales in comparison to Utah's talent?”

    We’re much closer to UW’s then byu-p is to ours.....See byu-p’s #94 ranked recruiting class as evidence, as they’re engaged in their annual 2 star recruiting bonanza.

    UW literally needed a miracle to beat Utah in a game in which Washington lead virtually the entire game and the Utes could only muster a measly 29 yards on 9 plays with the game on the line?

    LOL!

    "UW LITERALLY needing miracles to barely beat us the last 2 years?"

    Celebrating margin of defeat?

    LOL at the utter hypocrisy of Utah fans.

    “Stars matter and Washington has more and a better team! Washington has better recruiting classes and a better coaching staff!“

    If the disparity between us/UW is such, then how do you explain our double-digit W @ UW 3 years ago & UW LITERALLY needing miracles to barely beat us the last 2 years?

    “!”

    Go Utes!

    Stars matter and Washington has more and a better team! Washington has better recruiting classes and a better coaching staff! Good luck against NIU this weekend it will be a much tougher challenge than WSU was for the Utes!

    The Utes were better statistically.
    But the team still has the same mission...getting better in about 2 weeks before
    playing Washington.

    Go Utes!
