    Whittingham will successfully pull of a fake punt fake field goal and Utah will win 32 to 27, making this win the best win in the state of Utah for any team in 20 years.

    I have faith.

    Let's do this Utes!

    Onward and Upward

    Kudos to my Utes! You guys have been treating us to some seriously entertaining football this year! Keep up the great work, keep fighting! You guys have all the big-play ability to contend with any opponent you face. Keep those big plays coming!

    Go Utes!

    3 50+ yard plays vs FBS teams. This would only be possible by a power conference team. Sincerely, Chris B.

    Utah's play calling has been outstanding. If they execute a little better they could beat anyone on their schedule.
    Not a big Ute fan but they are a good team, and next year they could be really exciting.

    Counting only games versus FBS teams, Utah's scoring average drops to 31.25, less than 4 points more than BYU at 27.4.

    btw,

    BYU has 3 50+ yard plays versus FBS teams, plus a 44 yard play.

    Snack PAC,

    A 4 point per game is quite significant. As usual Utah is better

    Big plays and... soul crushing losses and more to come.

    "3 50+ yard plays vs FBS teams."

    Where did you come up with that number, Nate?
    Vs. USU: Travis Wilson pass complete to Anthony Denham for 51 yards to the UthSt 2 for a 1ST down.
    Travis Wilson pass complete to Dres Anderson for 56 yards to the UthSt 22 for a 1ST down.
    At BYU: James Poole rush for 65 yards to the BYU 25 for a 1ST down.
    Travis Wilson pass complete to Dres Anderson for 74 yards to the BYU 1 for a 1ST down.
    Vs. UCLA: Travis Wilson pass complete to Dres Anderson for 54 yards for a TOUCHDOWN.

    Snack PAC: "BYU has 3 50+ yard plays versus FBS teams, plus a 44 yard play."

    Utah also has a 49 yard play. The difference? In a metric of "50+ yard plays," we don't try to pass off "almost 50+ yard plays."

    "A 4 point per game is quite significant."

    After five games? Don't kid yourself.

    SnackPac,

    With 4 more points you could have beat Virginia.

    You know, the Virginia team that lost 59-10 to a go fast go hard Oregon offense.

    The Virginia team that has 1 and only 1 Division I win this year - you guys.

    LOL!

    Is four in a row significant?

    I'll take four wins over four stars over four points over four rating services.

    The best thing about being four in a row, is the opportunity to go 5 in a row!

    See ya all in 2016 RES

    We need more cougar fans to comment on an other Utah article. It's great when they argue insignificant numbers or opinions.

    4 in a row,
    0-4 to start in your new conference the first two years and 0-2 to start this year and tonight going to 0-3!!! Ouch!!! I could be wrong but I don't think BYU has ever started 0-4 in any conference they have been in!!!

    Go BYU beat GT
    Go Stanford beat Utah!!!

    Reno, yes, BYU definitely has started 0-4 at least 4 times in their history. They've also never played in a conference as competitive as the PAC-12. And you're wrong again on 0-3. "Ouch!!!"

    Add one more 50+ yard play to the list with Dres' TD reception today!
