Welcome back BYU football

Well it looks like the BYU football team has finally made an appearance in the ninth game of the year. For the first time this year the offense, defense, and special teams all did their jobs. BYU went up 38-0 against lowly UNLV by halftime. It was 55-0 until the last minute when the BYU defensive backups gave up a TD. Final score: BYU 55 UNLV 7.

Sure, it was just hapless UNLV but this was by far the best the BYU offense has looked all year. The defense pretty much shut UNLV down as well.

BYU has a history getting better as the year progresses under Bronco. There is no better example of that than this 2010 team. This bodes well for BYU’s chances of winning at least six games and going to a bowl. And it bodes even better for years to come with the BYU underclassmen getting the hang of things.


  1. … and the Utes are looking extremely beatable …

  2. What, the 40-0 hole Utah was in makes you think they are beatable Mike?

    (Love me a little schadenfreude.)

  3. LSU beats Alabama. Nebraska barely beats Iowa State. Bust the BCS man

  4. Well, nothing like playing the Southern Nevada School for the Blind, female division, to make yourselves look good!

  6. The Ref at the goal line for Utah’s TD had “Charity” written on the back of his jersey.

  7. Haha I’m glad you BYU folks turned your post on your game into a Utah post. It must be refreshing to finally have the courage to start talking trash (which coincidentally occurs on a day when Utah finally lost) – courageous indeed.

    Mondo, just like the refs who waved their flags off and forgot they had flags during the BYU-Wyoming game.

    On behalf of the ute fans I’m glad our first loss has given you something BYU coudlnt.

  8. :0

    Come on Riley, Utah is still favored by 40, it isn’t so much talking trash as it is talking possible hope.

  9. Comments made about Utah here are being sent to Kyle Whittingham for display on the Ute Football team bulletin board. And the team thanks you for the extra motivation. They were having trouble getting excited for the BYU game this year.

  10. Hehe. So that was the problem on Saturday? Utah was lacking in bulletin board quotes to motivate the team. Well in that case I’m glad NCT could be of some assistance.

  11. Not everyone can pull off wearing t-shirts with the YW’s motto Geoff, we’ll take what we can get.
