SOUTH JORDAN — Lendio, a small-business loan company, has a tradition during BYU/Utah rivalry week. Each year, fans from both sides try to prank the fans from the other side.

Last year, Brock Blake, a BYU fan and CEO of Lendio, brought in real grass and created a mini replica of the BYU field only to have the Utah fans come in later that night and spray paint over the BYU logo and fence live goats on the mini field.

This year the Utah fans arranged for the Utah marching band, mascot and cheerleaders to come march through the office playing the Utah fight song.

One year, Blake's office was painted completely red. In retaliation, he covered a Ute fan's car in BYU logos.
