1. Utah @ BYU (Sept. 17). Yes, this game is in September. Yes, neither team is in the same conference anymore. Yes, Utah could still go to the Rose Bowl even if they lose this game. However, no one cares. The stadium will be as loud as it ever was in November. The fans will be at each other’s throats as much as ever before. This is still a huge rivalry and it always will be. Ute fans are already annoyed at all the Jake Heaps hype and Cougar fans are annoyed at the Ute fans newly found Pac-12 arrogance. Something’s got to give, even if it is in September.
