What’s rivalry week without some good-natured poking fun? We gained inspiration from this video, made by a Duke student to troll some North Carolina students and ran with it — “UNC fans say the darndest things.” As it turns out, Ute fans do too!
Jess and Mary, with help from new Cougs on Cougs contributors Carson and Ryan, headed up to enemy territory to see what they know (or, rather, what they don’t) about Utah football.
With Carson as the frontman, we asked Utah students (all of them self-proclaimed fans) around campus an array of questions about Utah football that weren’t actually about Utah football at all, and successfully pulled the wool over several of our new friends’ eyes.
Which Warner brother is their favorite? Do they think Jamaal Williams will pass the all-time rushing record? Should Utah rejoin the Mountain West Conference? What about the campus-wide respect for greats Ty Detmer and Steve Young?
Watch the video for some laugh-out-loud funny responses to those questions and a few more.
Don’t worry, no Utes were harmed in the making of this video. Mountain West champs 2017!
You can catch the much-anticipated game Sat. Sept. 10 at 5:30 p.m. MDT on FOX.
Happy rivalry week. #BeatUtah!
