    Remember how last year even Kyle said the pac12 title game was out of the question after four straight losses? Crazy things then happened and we were right there

    Two losses is two fewer than how we were last year. Asu has a brutal schedule. If USC stumbles we are right back in this.

    I am loyal and have not lost faith in Kyle or the team. I see a string of four out of five wins next, just like last year.

    Enjoy this trip because this is as close as you will ever get to the Rose Bowl Game.

    Glad to see you're recovered from the USC beat down and ready for another. Can't wait to see your mark it down prediction on the Utah - UCLA game in the Rose Bowl.

    "Two losses is two fewer than how we were last year..."

    I hate to burst your delusional bubble, but the Utes still have plenty of chances left to exceed last season's conference loss total. An 0-4 conference start this season will all but eliminate the Utes from any possibility of a bowl.

    They'll play in he Rose Bowl......it will be in October, say on the 13th this year.

    BYU did that and Steve Young was the QB; BYU won. We'll see if Utah can, after last year's Colorado game in SLC.

    Boo on BYU bitter fans. Worry about your own team.

    I too am excited for this week @UCLA. I have not given up at all in having a good year. Playing good opponents is sweet. I don't miss playing Wyoming, New Mexico, UNLV, CSU, and even Air Force with their chop blocks.

    Talk smack BYU fans and enjoy playing the patsies in November. Why worry about Utah's schedule when you have losses to recover from against Oregon State, Notre Dame, and GT?

    Just like Utah fans talk smack on BYU forms. At Utah State we took out the Utes. USU is on the rise, but if Utah could not win that game, sorry, UCLA and any other respectable PAC 12 team is going to work Utah.

    This is a pivotal game if Utah wants to go bowling. I think they will show up and play well. UCLA has been up and down all year.

    @Jazzledazzle

    You beat Utah, barely, at home, for the fist time in like 15 years and now you're all Puffy. After putting up a 3 spot on BYU, I would hardley beat on my chest, or talk down to the Utes!

    Uh...you've been on here bragging about utah's 3 point win over BYU and you want to talk down to a guy whose team beat yours.

    LOL!

    I suggest we keep our eye on the prize fellow BYU fans.
    Idaho, Weber St. New Mexico St, San Jose St. And BYU -Idaho intramural scrimmaging is the closest we will ever get to a perfect season again.

    Eye on the prize.

    The Oregon St. game will be interesting. Both starting QBs are out.

    We have yet to ever beat Colorado, or Cal, or most of the other dregs of the PAC 12.

    Don't remember "bragging" about Utah's win over BYU; even though I certainly mention it when BYU fans, like your self, brag about how BYU is better than Utah. Coming from the biggest troll on Utah threads; I take your comments for what there are, just drivel. LOL!

    Awwe, poor & bitter BYU fan.
    Can't even come up with your own comments so you have to copy someone else. How original and Provo of you!

    Isn't is interesting that there are always so many comments from BYU TROLLS on Utah articles. Could it be envy? Is BYU still smarting from the PAC 12 snub?

    I was at that game. You do know how log ago that was, don't you? It was almost three generations of football players ago. ha! Way to stay relevant.

    Only time the Utes are going to being playing in the Rose Bowl is during the regular season.

    "Only time the Utes are going to being playing in the Rose Bowl is during the regular season"

    As opposed to sitting behind a computer screen and only dreaming about it?

    As always, no matter how you trolls try to hide it your envy comes through.

    It's not my fault that you cheer for a mid-tier pac-10.2 team.

    Nobody is blaming you for being a fan of BYU. A team that lost again this season to what you call a "mid-tier pac-10.2 team."

    Sorry to burst your arrogant bubble, but with games at Notre Dame, Nebraska, Wisconsin, Georgia Tech, and West Virginia (in Washington DC) on the horizon, there's absolutely no reason for BYU fans to be in the least bit "envious" of the Utes playing in the Rose Bowl, something BYU has already done on many occasions.

    Yes USU beat Utah. Every dog has their day. As for the Utah losing to UCLA theory based on the USU game. Please! Utah's offensive line has come a long way since then. Utah allowed one sack from USC, and Hays didn't take shots after the release either.

    USU fumbled 5 times, Utah forcing three, and each bounce went USU's way. Yes you won at home in overtime on an offensive pass interference call after getting outscored 20-7 in regulation after being up 13-0. Utah played a horrible game, and you got a win for the first time in 15 years.

    Spokane Ute was right. You are getting puffy. Then Duckhunter comes in with a jazzle dazzle defense. Really guys? USU worked over Utah eh? Okay, if that's the best you can do. This from Duckhunter, who's Cougars have been worked over 8 of the last 11 years head to head against Utah. I could back off the worked over comment if ya'll can do the same. Bounces and close calls happen.

    Worked over, Utah blew out BYU in 2004, 2008, and 2011. BYU last did that in 1996.

    Solomon Levi I would not get warm fuzzies about the teams on schedule in years to come.
    They can change and back out at any time. Notre Dame for one. Ohio St. dumped its mid major plans and just signed TCU.
    I would not be surprised to see one or more of those schools you mentioned reduce or back out all together from their agreements with BYU. Those schools will work on improving their OOC games to improve strength of schedule. I doubt they are interested in our legacy of scheduling bottom feeder WAC teams all the time. That does not help them at all.

    Proud Ute I would not get warm fuzzies about our odds of being competitive in years to come.
    The teams we play out recruit us constantly. USC for one, their worst player would be our best player. We even lost to Colorado.
    I would not be surprised to see one or more of those schools beat us every year for as long as we are in the PAC12. Those schools will have to work on improving their OOC games to improve strength of schedule because playing us will always drag theirs down. I doubt they are interested in our legacy of never winning any conference championships in any sport. That does not help them at all.

    @ Soloman Levi

    BYU has only played in the Rose Bowl 5 times, going 1-4 in those games.
