    Congrats utologist, you can feel better about the little red engine that could now. I'd substitute that 2nd half tonight in my fantasy with the 2nd half against BYU again too.

    Let me ask just one more time to end the year ... how in the world did BYU ever lose to this ute team ???? Oh , I think I finally know the answer .. they choked just like the Utes did tonight ....

    -------

    No, the difference Utah had 5 TOs in the 2nd half, BYU 1.

    You were thoroughly beaten by a better team.

    The Utes learned tonight not to mess with big time football ... just keep playing in your group of 5 conference and you should be fine ...

    Oh. My. Goodness. Some humble pie for the Uties! Top PAC 12 team dominated by Northwestern. WOW!!!

    The future looks bright at QB for the Utes !!

    9 drives in the 2nd half, 6 TOs (including 1 on downs).

    Shelley 7 TOs in the last 2 games.

    I think it's safe to say, Huntley will be the starter next season.

    I guess, like BYU fans, we can now celebrate a loss to a Top 25 bowl team.

    Wow! I sure didn’t see that coming! That was a fantastic second half! Nice job Northwestern! Wasn’t Utah favored by 13.5? Big 10 owned the pac-11.5 tonight!

    What happened to the Utes???? I quit watching at halftime to run kids around and now I'm home to this? I really thought we'd have trouble with NW but I was encouraged after the 1st half. Oh how we've fallen... I'm sure the Alamo Bowl is happy with their choice now :(

    This is like the BYU game in reverse... Like BYU, the Utes need to show up to the whole game. Surprised that Coach Whit allowed this meltdown to happen.

    This game is the year's most disappointing bowl game for all the local teams.

    At 20-10, 5 and goal instead of 27-10 Utah ends up choking the game away 31-20.

    In 3rd, Utah had 5 drives, 4 TOs resulted in 28 points for Northwestern.

    Hmm . . . Looks like another team from Utah is learning about blowing a 20 point lead.

    Utah is overrated; the Utes were lucky Grimes took his foot off the gas in the 2nd half.

    Now that Utah defense looks the same defense that gave up 20-0.

    28 points in the 3rd

    Utah choked!

    You’re obviously confused, as usual.

    Utah didn’t beat anybody 35-7.

    -----

    Where did I say Utah beat BYU 35-7.

    Take your time, read what I said a few more times. You will figure it out.

    @1991

    That sure doesn't look like an Akron defense.

    That looks like the defense that took your team to the woodshed 35-7.

    Northwestern is playing like a team that lost to the Akron Zips at home.
