Ok, so I'm not really going to be doing this every week but I feel like I have nothing better to do at this moment.
Methodology: Head to Head is what counts first. In the even of a 1:1:1 split between the 3 division 1 schools, margin of victory might count but that's mostly if their is a blowout. Overall record doesn't really count for much due to the SOS disparities but it could factor in if the margin is long enough. I'll try not to troll to much!
1. University of Utah (1-0,1-0 in state)
QB Travis Wilson had the highest Passer Rating in the state and the most Yards/Attempt. Defense was only so-so in the opener and the Offense had to many 3 and outs. But they showed mental toughness and occasional big play ability in the opener. The run game was suspect, but when they had to run to eat up clock, they got it done, and gave Utah State only 20 seconds to score a TD. Special teams was solid except for the return game, but that could be attributed to first game jitters. The difference in the game could be attributed to the depth that Utah was been gaining due to those Pac-12 stickers some of us have been putting on our cars, and have subsequently been receiving ridicule for.
2. Utah State
QB Chuckie Keaton might be the best athlete that steps onto the field in any of State's games (USC's Lee is the most likely exception). He is almost unstoppable, and Utah State's first teamers are as good as anybodies in the state. The Utah State D line is also very solid, and the blitz brings a lot of pressure to opposing QB's. If Utah State and Utah played 100 times, State would probably win at least 40 of them, fact.
What in the world was that? I guess game 2 vs. Texas will show us if that was just due to rain, or if Anea will be fired only to be rehired and heralded as BYU's football savior in a couple of seasons. QB Taysom Hill only completed about 30% of his passes, maybe that was just because of jitters, the 2 hour delay or rain. The Defense was solid yet again and we'll just have to see about this team.
