Those fans that follow both of these programs are very aware of the different outcomes for both programs last year. BYU finished of the year with a win over Oregon in the Las Vegas Bowl. The Cougars finished with an 11-2 record and were crowned Mountain West Conference champions. Utah had a up and down season, but a successful one. The Ute's, who finished 8-5, finished of there season with a win in the Armed Forces Bowl over a very good Tulsa team. Both teams had great seasons, BYU dominated offensively and the Ute's defense was top notch.
I pose the question with both teams losing key players, who will have a better year in 2007? Will BYU repeat as conference champs or will the Utah return to glory as they did in the days of Smith and Myer?
