The Utes hadn't beaten the Cougars in seven years and weren't expected to win this one, especially after falling behind 16-0 at halftime. But they clawed back in the second half and on fourth-and-15 with just three minutes left, Randy Gomez hit Frank Henry with a 19-yard touchdown pass to give the Utes the win over the Jim McMahon-led Cougars.

Those are in a pretty good order. I think that last game should be in here. That was pretty intense, especially given BYU's and Utah's directions at the beginning of the season and how BYU shutout Utah for 3 quarters.

Salt Lake City, UT

You missed the McMahon "Scoreboard Game"...it was classic!

Red Leader
Bountiful, UT

I forgot the 2008 game was that close through three quarters. I remember it being close at the half...

As for #1, as a Ute fan I'd like to see that moved somewhere else and put one of the 34-31 games at #1. I can still feel the gutting pain I originally felt when watching that game, pain which lasted for days, and I have to change the channel.

What about the 2010 game? Last year as conference rivals, etc. Burton's block of the field goal! What a game!
