BYU/Utah Football Rivalry Week

One of the most fierce college rivalries in the country will come to a head Saturday when football players from Brigham Young University and the University of Utah clash in Provo.

BYU is riding high, 6-4 overall and 5-2 in the Mountain West Conference, and has played very well in its last few games. Utah started the season strong but has since stumbled. The Utes lost their starting quarterback and a key receiver to injuries last week in a loss to New Mexico. They are 5-5 overall and 3-4 in the MWC.

But records and projections don’t mean much in this rivalry. The game it always an emotional dogfight. It will be played Saturday, Nov 19, 1 pm (MST), and will be televised on ESPN+Plus. The game can be seen locally on KJZZ-TV Channel 14.

Here’s some of the media hype previewing the game:
