This to me seems like a big reason the Utes deserve the spot if they are able to beat Oregon. In their last meeting with an SEC team in the Sugar Bowl 09, the Utes plastered Alabama and deserved a piece of that NC, which later was awarded if I’m not mistaken.
OU and Georgia have great brands but Utah is the again underdog that the country will love to see get their chance after the injustice of the BCS screwed them in the past.
The Utes are the new Ohio State of the West and from California to Florida we are the team people will watch far more than OU or Georgia. Go Utes take care of Oregon and get what’s deserved.
