Utes will spend the holiday laboring

Happy Labor Day all,

While you are celebrating the end of summer with a cookout, the Utes will be laboring up on the hill this afternoon as they prepare for Utah State.

We'll have a practice report later.

I spent part of the holiday weekend in a football fest myself, catching a redeye after Thursday's game to Atlanta to celebrate my father's 65th birthday, see the Georgia-Buffalo game and then watch the Clemson-Auburn game.

After watching the Georgia-Buffalo game I think I know how many of you Utah fans felt after Thursday's win. It was nice to get the season underway, but I bet it left you wanting more, like a real game.

The Utes might just get that this Friday in Logan. The Aggies are going to be fired up to host the Utes and having Utah coach Kyle Whittingham going up against his former defensive coordinator in Gary Andersen is always fun.

So what do you think fans, is this going to be a real test for the Utes? Worried about this game at all?

Personally I believe the Utes are at a point where a team like the Aggies might hang around for a quarter, but Utah's depth and talent should make for a fairly comfortable win.

Course, you never know with rivalry games. An early turnover such as the Utes had against Northern Colorado could give the Aggies a lot of hope and put the Utes in a dangerous situation. The Bears couldn't use that turnover to spark an upset, but the Aggies would have a better shot at doing so.
