I think we all agree that for Utah to have any prayer at a bowl berth, they need a win Saturday. No ifs, ands, or buts about it.
I guess easier said than done ... but it's not like they're playing an incredibly tough foe. Washington State is on the verge of a losing season and, outside a stunning turn of fortune, won't be making a bowl game for the ninth straight time.
Oddly, the last time these two teams met, Washington State was one loss away from their bowl dreams ending. They're 2-6 this year. Once again, the Utes can crush the Cougars' bowl dreams.
Will they? Is it sad that I kind of take some delight in that? Small victories, I guess.
