Show Notes:

College Football

Should teams be given an automatic bye-week either before or after playing a Thursday game?  Does having such a short turnaround put the players at risk?  Is it an unfair advantage for the opponent?  We tackle this issue and some up with some surprising answers.

Holy War 2012 – BYU Cougars at Utah Utes

Wow.  There’s no other word to describe what went down at Rice Eccles Stadium on Saturday night.  In what was one of the most bizarre finished this rivalry – and possibly all of college football – has ever seen the Utah Utes hung on by the smallest of threads to get the victory over the arch rival BYU Cougars.

We break down every possible facet of this game and recap the positives and negatives that both teams took away from this game.  Is Riley Nelson hurt?  Should Brandon Doman get Michael Alisa more involved?  Can Jon Hays continue his surprisingly solid play?  Should Travis Wilson even step on the field the rest of the season?

BYU Cougars

The Cougars have no time to rest as they prepare to take on the Boise State Broncos in Boise, Idaho.  How does their experience in Rice Eccles only a few short days before prepare them to enter another hostile environment?  How much of an advantage do the Broncos have with BYU having a limited amount of time to get ready?

The Big East rumors are heating up again.  Should BYU fans hope for their team to get an invitation?

Utah Utes

With the grueling game against their arch rivals behind them, the Utah Utes now face the task of heading to Tempe, Arizona to take on the Arizona State Sun Devils.  What did the Utes learn from the Holy War that could help them going into this match up?  Can Utah’s offensive line get pressure on a young quarterback?

Utah State Aggies

Utah State lost a heart breaker to Wisconsin last week.  Fortunately for the Aggies they have a good shot at redemption as they travel to Fort Collins to take on Colorado State.  How likely are the Aggies to win out the rest of the season?  Besides BYU, can any team they face even give them a challenge or will the ghosts of last season come back to bite them?
