This will be a great rivalry going forward.It will determine the
second best team in the state.I also think byu/usu will be fighting
each other in recruiting for the kids who aren't given offers by Utah(see
head to head to head between the 3 schools more recruits have picked Utah EVERY
year since our Pac 12 invite)
Since both of these teams' quests for BCS bowls and since both of them lost
to their big brother Pac 12 University of Utah, this really will be the only
bragging rights either of them have.The loser will really not have
much of anything to brag about this year.And I think that will be
the boys from Provo.Its one thing to say your team goes fast and
hardIt's another thing to have the athletes that actually can
do itGo Aggies!

Kind of like the byu Middle tennesse game, no one outside of Provo, Logan in
this case, and some lds wards across the nation care anything about this game
as it has no BCS bowl implications whatsoever. And neither of these teams has
proven in many years they are nationally relevant(see top 10 finishes,
undefeated seasons)Meanwhile, in Salt Lake City there is a huge game
with national power UCLA to determine the Pac 12 South winner, with the winner
playing Oregon for the Rose Bowl. The nation will be very interested. And both
of these teams have proven in the last decade they are nationally relevant(see
top 10 finishes, undefeated seasons)Best of luck to Utah State and
Utah this week.
This is the one and only true rivalry in the state. Utah is no
longer a rival with these teams(although they see it that way)The
head to head records on the field the last decade prove it is very one sided
against both Utah state and byu.And power conference teams
aren't rivals with non power conference teams.You think San
Diego is a rival to USC and UCLA simply due to close proximity?Nope!byu/usu: the best(and only) rivalry in the state.Go aggies!
Here is recuriting ranking for NCAA football teams it is out of 122 teams.BYU 2010 #402011 #622012 #612013 #70USU 2010
#1082011 #772012 #1162013 #104So if BYU does not
win, it shows that the coaching staff should be fired. Since BYU players are
underperforming because of bad coaching.
I love how Chris pretends he doesn't care about USU and BYU.And
yet 5 of the first 6 comments are his. Figures.
Chris B,I am curious to know who Utah views as their rival if it
isn't BYU or USU? Colorado? That's a pitiful replacement! USC? They
sure as heck don't consider you a rival, or even part of the Pac 12. When I
went down to the USC/USU game in L.A. every time I said, "beat the
Utes", the response was, "who is that?" Keep dreaming if you think
the true Pac 10 considers Utah on anywhere near the same playing field. You can
alienate yourself and dispose of your traditional rivals all you want, but you
aren't going to pick up any new rivals any time soon. Enjoy perennial
losing seasons.Also, USU is the best team in the state and will
pummel BYU. This will be a good rivalry going forward. Best of luck to all 3
teams in the state after this Friday!
Aggies will win if they can keep BYU defense out of Chuckie's face. BYU
will win if Aggie defense stays in the locker room. Go Aggies!
Utah to the PAC 12, is New Mexico to the MWC.Having a cousin, and
two friends on the Aggie team, I'll just say-BYU 28Utah State 17
Chris B,Does Utah have a special case or room for that huge State of Utah
Championship trophy in that new building they just opened? And once again you
need to be the first to post on an article that has nothing to do with Utah and
shine a light on yourself!!! How many messages have you sent to UCLA fans this
week? Which LA paper is like the DN? What is the name of the UCLA student
newspaper? What are the names of the UCLA mascots? What are UCLA's primary
colors? Just wanted to know what you know about one of your new rivals!!! Good
luck Thurs.!!!UCLA 70Utah 14
Thanks ChrisB, your comments only show how relevant BYU and Utah State are to
Utah. If BYU and USU were irrelevant, then you wouldn't spend time on our
articles. Thanks for demonstrating that we are equally important!
So Chris B, who are Utah's rivals? I can't imagine a "big time
program" as you label Utah (as opposed to the fun little program in Logan)
would have no rivals...Name them. ?ASU? The Sun Devils look at the U as a
minor league team. I think you are left with the really big rivalry, Colorado?
BYU will win this game. They are not rivals and it hasn't been 100 years
since BYU last lost to the aggies.
