....aka The Holy War
It's a great rivalry. I look forward to it every year.
Despite the fact that I hold a bachelors degree from the University of Utah and am proud to do so, when it comes to football, I bleed blue. (Family tradition. Try as I might, I can't switch loyalties...it's just too ingrained in me.)
This year we were invited to watch the game with some friends down the street. A BBQ first and then some serious football.
We were split pretty evenly between Ute red and Cougar blue which made it all the more fun. Those representing the red cheering section ended up with much more to cheer about than the blue, unfortunately, so I was very glad to be watching the game amongst friends rather than by myself where, I'm sure, I would've been much more depressed.
Fumble, fumble, fumble, fumble, interception and oh, did I mention fumble?
Final score: Utah 54 BYU 10.
(My poor little Cougars...how emotionally devastated they must have been.)
