      Just saw some bowl game projections for the Utes and there were three very intriguing matchups:

      Utah vs. Virginia in the Sun Bowl

      Utah vs, Tator Zoobs in the Vegas Bowl

      Utah vs. Utah State in the Cactus Bowl

      Hmm. Can’t stand the Tater Zoobs.

      Gotta win this weekend, or we’ll be staying home this bowl season.

        I think we can beat the Buffs but they will be be a tough get.

      Prefer the Aggies honestly.  Donko is the least appealing. Boise st wouldn’t be that bad I guess.

        Of those options I like Utah State too. At least we could confirm supremacy in the state. Although I don’t really have anything against the Aggies, so I’d hate to see them lose as badly as they would to Utah.

        From a national perspective, Virginia would be the better opponent. I’m sure Kyle would be unimpressed to be matched up against Donko again, however.

        Boise St? Meh.

          TV would prefer the Roscoe Vs Whillingham matchup. Just makes it easy to garner interest I think.

      I think we get to 6. But honestly Buffs will be fighting for a bowl game. This sat is critical.

      Just as soon not face Boise State.  For decades now (going back to 1980 when they kicked our ass 28-7 back when they were in the Big Sky) they just don’t seem to be a good matchup for us.

        Come on now. Scared of Boise? Time to get a streak of rolling them up so posters like you  on the other side start being scared of Utah. Don’t ever be scared of anyone. Ever. You only live once.

      I think Virgina would be interesting, wouldn’t everyone love to see Bronco’s bewildered scowl again? But El Paso isn’t the most appealing location for fans.

      I respect Utah State, and wouldn’t mind playing them, although the day after Christmas isn’t too appealing to fans.

      Boise State. Gross. But Vegas I think our fans after moaning about it for a week or two would show up.  Hopefully Kyle can finally fry some spuds.

      But, when you’re 6-6, or maybe 7-5, you go to the dance to whoever says yes.

        does donko still scowl? I thought leaving tds would have cured his affliction.

        I’d love playing our little brothers from Logan

      Boise isn’t even a state.

        Boise is a state of mind.

          How different is it from a New York State of Mind?

      If we can get to a bowl game, I will take it. That’s priority number one. 

      Outside of that, Virginia would be cool, even if it is Bronco. It would be a different conference and new look for us. 

      Utah State would be fine. I like the Aggies but would prefer a non in-state school. Been there, done that. If only there were 5 quarters, blah, blah, blah. 

      I used to hate the tater zoobs, but have backed off of them a bit. Still my last choice though.

        Especially since we already played them in a bowl game several years back.

      Where did you see the Cactus Bowl prediction? That’s a Big XII v. Pac-12 matchup? My prediction would be Utah v. Iowa State (Cactus) but Kansas State and Texas could fall into that bowl as well?

        I would love to play boise honestly. I believe that’s a game we would win and it would feel nice to get one over that lovely fanbase
