11/17/10: The Holy War
By Doug Fabrizio
Salt Lake City, Utah – It was 1895 when then Brigham Young Academy and the University of Utah met for their first sporting event. It was a baseball game, and by the end there was no score, but there was a bench-clearing brawl between the players. Loyalties run deep in the state and the Utah-BYU divide splits neighbors and families alike. Next week the two teams take to the gridiron and Wednesday were talking about the history and the nature of the rivalry. Whether you bleed red or blue, we hope you'll join us.
