Re: Where will our bowl game be?

Honestly I hope Boise and Memphis lose and Appalachian State gets the NY6 bowl. App State is a darn good team that is underrated. Got a veteran QB and RB and have 2 decent wins vs P5 schools in North and South Carolina. Their only loss was to a bowl eligible team by 3. Part of me is rooting for the...

Re: Rooting for the Utes to make CFP?

I wouldn't go so far as to say that I'm rooting for Utah to make the CFP, but I'd much rather see Utah (or any other conference champion) make it than a second SEC team. Granted, if Georgia beats LSU in the SEC CCG, both teams probably deserve a CFP spot, but still... Alabama is out of the running n...

Preseason quantitative rankings don't mean much. But it's interesting that Ken Pomeroy's rankings aren't very high on USU, either.
