History of the rivalry: The top 15 BYU vs. Utah football games
Scoreboard: Nov. 22, 1980 — BYU 56 Utah 6 »3 of 15 «
Before there was Johnny Manziel, there was Jim McMahon.
McMahon led BYU to an embarrassing rout of the Utes as BYU rolled its way to its first bowl victory in the 1980 Holiday Bowl. A few Utah fans tried to heckle McMahon after yet another touchdown.
All McMahon did in response was point at the scoreboard.
The Cougars thrashed the Utes 56-6. That game stands as the biggest margin of victory for either team.
