I like all of these predictions, except Colorado losing to Hawaii. However, it
has is a good possibility of happening. The Oregon vs LSU game is
probably the most important game of the week. I would have predicted Utah to win
42-3, keeping MSU out of the end zone but giving up a FG.
Prognostications, trolling, and fanaticisms aside, its time to get it on! Go Cougars - Go Aggies - Go Utes!!!College football rules in
my book . . .
Bring on the season!!
Wrong HarmonMontana St Wins14-10utes offense fails to do
anything all game and when your defense is gonna be on the field all game they
will get tired and give up 2 scores to the Bobcats.
That's why they play 'em----so we can see who really is the better team on any
given day. Enough of predictions already---let's play some football!
The Utes will not shut out MSU. I think the Utes win in an uncomfortably close
10 point victory. Just Win Baby!Go Utes!
0 points for Montana State is a slap in the face to that program. That's rude.
Just because Utah's offense during camp has been abysmal and their defense
appears to step up means MSU won't score at all? This team will be better than
last year, and they dominated Washington State until the 4th. MSU has one of
the best QBs out there. You don't get named the conference co-MVP for nothing.
MSU also held their division national champ to 7 points. I normally like Dick's
picks, but that score prediction is offensive.
@Strikeryou referring to Utah's offense in camp as
"abysmal" just shows that you have not followed them at all. Love it
when you guys show your hand. Its ok, we love you anyway.
Striker,All you say is true, but let's look a little closer. What
conference does Montana State play in? The Big Sky. I don't believe the Utes
have ever come close to losing to a Big Sky opponent. So being the conference
co-MVP needs to be qualified just a bit. Next, dominating the worst team in the
PAC 10 last year is hardly something to brag about under these circumstances.
The Utes are picked by virtually every expert to finish way ahead of WSU in the
PAC 12 South. In addition to that, the Ute always have a tough defense and this
year is no exception. This could be one of our best denfensive units ever. I
don't see our lineman or linebackers having trouble containing their QB and
their receivers are not going to outrun our DB's. There's a chance they could
score on us, but there's an equal chance we could shut them out. I think the
shutout prediction is bold, but not offensive.
Dick...explain how Ole Miss is going to score 24 points. They have a rookie QB
and freshmen WRs. They do have a big, talented O-Line (some say it is the best
in the nation) but they are going against a very good, very strong, very quick,
and deep BYU defense. That depth, and the inability of Ole Miss to throw the
ball, will keep them in the 10-14 pts neighborhood.BYU 27 Ole
BYU is going to be playing a faster more athletic team in Ole Miss so execution
is critical and then being able to get some turn overs from an inexperienced QB.
If the Y gets 2 turn overs and converts them into touch downs I see the Y
winning by 14. If Ole Miss causes turnovers I see BYU losing by 10.
I don't see the Utes shutting out Montana State. I see Utah trying to run up
the score in the first half to provide their backups ample playing time. Wynn
needs to be kept healthy, and Hays and Shreve need to get on the field. Neither
backup QBs will likely produce much scoring, but would rather likely to turn the
ball over a few times, thus providing for some additional scoring opportunities
for the Bobcats. No big deal. Margin of victory is irrelevant.
I don't profess to know much, but I know one thing for sure...IT'S
Disagree with 2 predictions ...USC will beat Minnesota much worse -
35-3Utah will not cover the 28 pt spread - 24-10
Striker......You don't know your history do you?Utah lost to a John
L. Smith led Idaho Vandal team in SLC, and Idaho was a member of the Big Sky
Is WSU is the pac south? Finishing ahead of WSU is not a big deal. Finishing
below, USC, AZ, ASU in the south is a big deal. Having a very easy schedule and
avoiding the Standford and Oregon for the next two years is the best thing that
happened for the u.The pac was trying to justify the addition of
Colo and Utah over others. Should they finish bad, what will that mean.
Utah 45Montana 10I see a 10-2 and a very respectable #2-3
finish in the Pac 12.
Wishful thinking chris bDon't worry though, with a relatively easy
finish to the season, you will become bowl eligible after the final regular
Unless Heaps struggles more than I think he will , I see BYU putting up more
than 24pts. I will also be surprised if BYU's defense doesn't hold Ole Miss to
17 pts or less. Turnovers and big plays could change that but if the Y plays
solid, I see more of a BYU 34 / OMiss 13. We'll see, first games are always a
little nerve racking and filled with uncertainty.Utah should cruise if for
no toher reason than their defense. Utah 28, MS 10. It could be worse,
depending on Wynn and how he plays.
I have Utah winning tonight 31-7 and I have BYU winning on Saturday 27-13.
Yes, BYU is going to be playing a 'faster' 'more athletic' SEC team . . . that
lost to an FCS team last year. Give me a bleeding break! People who think BYU
can't hang with Ole Miss's are delusional.
Utah should dominate tonight, the big test is next week.BYU is more
likely to struggle:A) Heaps still has to prove that he can lead his
team to 17+ points on the road against a team with 4+ wins (Ol' Miss finished
4-8 and is expected to have similar record this year).B) Speed kills
and Ol' Miss has plenty while BYU's DBs don't.BYU 31Ol' Miss
28BYU wins with a last second 65 yard field goal.
Chris: 10-2 and 2-3 Which is it?
Chris B said that they would go 10-2 and end up as the #2-3 seed from the Pac-12
south. Which I agree is reasonable, hopefully they go at least 10-2. If Jordan
Wynn can keep his shoulder healthy and play like he did at times last year I see
the 10-2 record happening. If his shoulder doesn't hold up and he plays this
whole year like he finished up last season I don't think they do better than
7-5. Their defense can only hold them in a game for so long.I think that
BYU is better than what a lot of people are saying, it's just my opinion but I
do think that they will have at least a 10 win season.My predictions for
the games are:Utah 45Montana State 13The points
that Montana State scores will be because Utah already has a huge lead and has a
lot of second stringers in.BYU 28Ole Miss 17Jake
Heaps is a talented QB and I see his being able to throw against Ole Miss's
DB's. BYU's defense will be quicker than most people think.GO UTES!!
hohum,Sorry about inadvertantly tacking the word South onto PAC 12
in my post. I simply meant to say PAC 12. Also, show me the PAC 12 poll that
has the Utes finishing behind AZ. I haven't seen one. In fact, many experts
are openly speculating the Utes might beat AZ State, because of the season
ending injuries they've had to key players. Also, I haven't seen next year's
cross division schedule for the PAC 12 yet so I don't know that we avoid Oregon
and Stanford next season. I believe that is only this season and by all expert
accounts was just lucky for the us. Nothing intentional on the part of the

To my wife I said this morning, "Dear, do you have any last words to say
before the football season begins?"She did.Then I
said, "Would you like to see a movie before the season begins?"She did. We're going to see "The Debt" in 10 minutes. Home in
time for football.
Giving the Aggies 10 points against Auburn is a little hopeful isn't it? No way
is USU going to score 10 points saterday. That game will be fun to watch.
It'll be fun to see USU lose and lose badly while SUU hopefully takes our first
win of the season.
"Utah 34, Montana State 0: Look for Utah's defense to dominate this game,
force turnovers and set up a young offense for some scoreboard. Not a pressure
game for Norm Chow, is it?"Um, well, Utah put up 27 total
points, including a whopping 3 total 2nd half points. And the steller ute
defense allowed Montana State to score 10 points. Go Big Sky!
