After BYU’s stunning 24-21 win upset over then-No. 6 Wisconsin that earned the Cougars a bit of national respect via a No. 25 national ranking in the Associated Press college football poll, a group of BYU and Utah fans came together for good.
Britain Covey called it a lack of identity; Kyle Whittingham said it’s a little more nuanced than that. But the result is the same: an anemic offense in back-to-back weeks and a potential upset opportunity over the 10th-ranked team wasted.

BYU's historic 24-21 win at Wisconsin was the largest upset in KSL Pick'em history. Just three percent of participants picked the Cougars, the lowest winning percentage since 2016, when only four percent picked Oregon to defeat Utah.

Saturday night set up perfectly for Utah with a sellout home crowd and a Washington team still trying to find itself. But Utah's offense continued to struggle to find it's own identity, the result a tough start to the Pac 12 season

Here are the games for Week 3: Utah State vs. Tennessee Tech (Thursday), BYU at No. 6 Wisconsin, No. 17 Boise State at No. 24 Oklahoma State, No. 4 Ohio State vs. No. 15 TCU, and Utah vs. No. 10 Washington.
It’s one of those games Utah would like to erase from its memory, but the thought remains like a bad taste in the mouth. And head coach Kyle Whittingham isn’t ready for any of his offensive staff to forget about it.
