Utah 40, Wyoming 7

I know, I know. I'm getting these short reviews up later and later each week. I'll keep this one short. Once again Utah's defense and special teams stole the show. Utah's offense still struggled and was even outgained by Wyoming. The difference in the game is that Utah forced turnovers (and capitalized off them) while not turning the ball over themselves. The coaches are blaming the wind for the offensive struggles but I continue to believe that there are some deeper problems.

Incredibly, Utah received a first place vote in the Harris Interactive Poll (used for 1/3 of the BCS formula). They are #3 in time of possession and are just outside the top 10 in red zone offense. This week Utah meets CSU at home. I don't expect Utah to have any problems putting the Rams away early.

The only way I can reconcile that first place vote is that some dumb voter got UT and Utah mixed up. It just doesn't make any sense.

I concur that Utah must have gotten more love because of a mixup with UT, or else someone who has a Harris vote is a REALLY big Utah homer. (I would definitely say that someone made a mistake if BYU got that first place vote instead of the U.)

I would fully expect Utah to dispatch CSU with relative ease. However, I keep expecting Utah to have a let down game as they traditionally do under Coach Whittingham. We'll see what happens.

Who have you been watching play? Utah has not come and just put a decent opponent away this season. They got to make it close. I know they can do it, but will they? In either case I expect them to win the game. I just hope it's not another heart attack finish.

It sounds like they control there own destiny. Hopefully they can win all there games!
