Holy War

There’s already some bad blood brewing well before the Utah Utes take on the BYU Cougars Saturday night. Utes fans vandalized the Cougars’ statue front of LaVell Edwards Stadium overnight, tagging it in Utah colors.

This game kicks off at 10:15 p.m. ET and represents the 92nd iteration of the Holy War between these two rivals. Needless to say, the home team might have a bit of an extra chip on its shoulder for this one. Especially since Utah has won the last six years running.
