      ASU always gives us fits, but I’m feeling better about this one (than the USC game) for the sole reason that we play them at home. No N’keal Harry, but watch out for Brandon Aiyuk. Benjamin is legit, and Daniels is more than a capable QB. Won’t be easy.

      I think we’ll beat them. Their defense is just mid-tier, and I think we should be able to frustrate Daniels. The wildcard, frankly, is Herm Edwards.

      I ran a 7 game simulation in Massey and this was the result:

      I especially like the second one.

        Please let it be the 56-7 outcome!

          56-7 would be very cathartic given last years result and all the other WTF losses against them.

        I apparently suck at embedding photos.  I tried.

        In my simulation the Utes won all 7 games, 5 by more than 20.  Biggest win was 56-7.

        I hate ASU…maybe more than any other Pac-12 team. They are smug like USC, and frankly give us more fits. And we hear about it a lot more when they win (or maybe that’s just because I have smugass family in Phoenix who are Sun Devil fans) So the idea we can beat them like a drum appeals greatly to me this year. I don’t want a close game. I want us to win by an OSU blowout margin.

        That being said…this isn’t OSU. We better have our A game on. We better forget last week and focused with intensity and hatred on the Sun Devils this Saturday. still I’ll embrace a 45-17 win for us as a distinct possibility.

      I like our chances with a seasoned senior QB as opposed to a true freshman coming into very hostile territory…

      That, and our D is playing insane right now.

      ASU’s OL is garbage. So too is their DL. I’m worried about the weird scheming ASU can do.

      I am not worried. Utes by 10+

      Eno Benjamin has had this game circled for a long time. Some stupid Ute fans started a Twitter war with him, basically saying Moss is better.

      If we can contain him, I like our chances.

        I’m not a twitter user, and this is a rhetorical question: WTF would Ute FANS be doing, interacting with, and potentially firing up, a significant Ute opponenent?  

        Come on folks – GET A LIFE!!!!!

      I’m not worried at all. Since the USC loss, Utah is playing at an extremely high level in all phases. Meanwhile ASU is just plodding along like a car stuck in third gear. On run of form, I’d say Utah wins by two scores.

      I feel good about ASU. It’s USC not losing enough conference games that I worry about.

        Agreed. Utah and USC have basically the same schedule to close out the year, both playing Colorado, AZ, ASU, UCLA, and Cal. The only major difference is that they play Oregon at home and we have Washington on the road. While I feel more confident about our changes against the Huskies than theirs against the Ducks, I can absolutely see a scenario where Utah ends up 10-2 and USC ends up 8-4…but they win the division due to the tiebreaker. 🙁

        We’ve got zero margin for error the rest of the year.

      This simulation has us winning by 10. 

      Interesting how it has us at 88 overall vs ASU at 95 but our power is 95 to their 91.
