HOLY WAR



With Utah and BYU entering different conferences next year 
UTAH going to the
and BYU going INDEPENDENT
this was the last year they played each other. :(

So sad that it's come to and end!  It doesn't matter if you're a Y fan or a U fan, I think we can all agree that we're going to miss the excitement and the hype of the rivalry.  There are some die-hard UTAH fans (me) and some die-hard BYU fans (my family) and the week of the Holy War has always been a crazy with all the smack talking going on, but the TRUE FANS (both Utes and Cougars) always stick up for their team no matter what. It's so much fun, and it does sometimes get out of hand.  hahaha  But it's healthy competition and it's sad to see it end!  :(

I don't mean to brag or anything BUT, I'm so glad my 
WON THE GAME!!  THE FINAL GAME OF THE RIVALRY!!!!
Whoo-hooo......

With a final score of 17-16

It was an awesome game, BYU sure did give it to us, there's no denying that!!
They gave us a run for our money, their QB Heaps, is amazing! 
There were some bogus calls that were made, but what it came down to was the last 4 seconds of the game.  Heaps had them lined up perfectly for the field goal.  BUT Utah blocked the kick, and that was the game winner!  And we'll take it!

I wish both teams the best in their new conferences!

I will forever be a UTAH UTAH UTAH UTES fan!!

Love the matching Utes' gear. It was a fun rivalry. I don't really care for either team, I just like the hype of it all. It's hard for me to choose because they're both from Utah! Either way good game!

I'm pretty sure they will still play each other, it just might be at the beginning of the year instead of the last game of the year from now on. Anyway, love the matchy-matchy! And how cute is Lautala's outfit!? (And yes, I am actually on your blog and not reading it in my email! lol!) Go Utes!
