Calling all predictions
I mentioned in this week’s Top 10 that I picked BYU to win by 2.5. With Ute QB Brian Johnson out, BYU seems to be the consensus pick. I’d be interested to know everyone else’s take on the game.
Also, in Modern Germany today one of the students arrived decked out in red Utah gear. Dr. Kerry asked him about it and I asked if perhaps he had lost a bet. He insisted that he was a “die hard” Ute fan and Dr. Kerry suggested that was probably how Utah would lose on Saturday. Good natured jabs aside, what is a BYU student doing wearing Utah gear? I can understand a BYU fan cheering for Utah against anyone else–but against your own school? Can you be that jaded about BYU football? Where is the loyalty?
Seattle-ites: Do they still play football at the University of Washington? Pullman? Is anyone paying attention to this game? Is anyone going to attend? Who will win? Utah papers have had innumerable articles about the BYU vs. U of U matchup. The three Seattle-area papers I read have had virtually nothing about the UW vs. WSU game. What gives? Predictions?
