The wait is over. According to a BYU press release this morning, the BYU vs. Utah football game at LaVell Edwards Stadium on September 21, 2013 will be airing on ESPN2. The game is set for 8:15pm MDT.

After a big win over Texas on Saturday, BYU is looking forward to hosting Utah. One player in particular is BYU All American Linebacker, Kyle Van Noy. Van Noy has never beaten the Utes, having lost all three games to the rivals up on the hill.

So what does this game mean to Van Noy? Its the "Super Bowl" he said after his team upset No. 15 Texas on Saturday. BYU will look to take advantage of having two weeks to prepare for the Utes.

While every year is a big game between these two rival schools, because the two teams wont play again until 2016, the importance of this game is even bigger.
