    Too high, easy money. Utah will be playing their backup QB. Last game of the season.

    Seems like a lot of points for a team with a backup QB and nothing to play for.

    Didn't Utah get stomped in Sat? What happened?

    Washington State beat Utah 49-37 at WSU. WSU's QB threw for like 500 yards. WSU returned two INT's for touchdowns.

    Seems high. A win here would go a long way for recruiting

    I agree about it seeming high.

    SLC has seemed like a hard place to play for some, but I have to wonder how many of their fans will show up and how excited they'll actually be for a meaningless bull**** 'rivalry' game played the day after Thanksgiving.

    I have a friend who's a BYU grad, and he talks a lot about how Ute fans really shut down when they don't feel like the games matter anymore.

    I do worry about the Ute d-line eating our o-line for lunch. Saturday night told us how far the o-line has really come this year (nowhere).

    A win here would be historic. It would be a stabilizing win. Head above water win. We're getting our ***** squared away win. Totally doable, but a real challange.

    I'm probably over dramatic, but still... Winning this kind of game on the road at the end of a long season against an opponent in your weight class is a big deal.

    Not sure you understand how good the USC DL is, or their D in general.

    The line seems high, only because I don't think the game will be that high scoring. Something like 21-10 Utah is my guess.

    We're on the road in a conference game. Line seems pretty accurate to me.

    It is hard to say which Utah team shows. The one who beat the tree, or the one that has been pretty pedestrian through P12 play. I will say I like what I see in Utah, their record isn't anything to write home about, but they have been competitive more often in away CU hasn't. Still with Wilson out, which sucks BTW, he was a fun player to watch, CU may be able to sneak in and grab that last W. I think it will be a closer game than the line dictates. Get a few breaks and CU may steal one.

    We have been competitive with two conference teams on the road, Utah and Washington State. This Utah team is not as good as the team they had in 2011 when we went there and upset them. I'm not saying we win but 17 points is a lot. They're on a 5 game skid right now and the only team they've beat by more than 7 was a Weber State.

    They're starting a walk on QB. I'd be surprised if they scored much more than 17 points.

    vs. a Mike Leech defense that is ranked #93 in pass defense efficiency which is four spots lower than 1-11 Cal

    I'm not yet ready to predict a Buffs win, but this team is starting to smell more like a MM coached team, and I think they could definitely take it to the Yoots in this game if the home team comes out flat.

    on 46 attempts for 45% completion with 2 picks against a defense that gave up 191 points in October.

    So you're saying that WSU, a team that happens to be coached by Mike Leech has a bad defense?
