I weary of this BYU-Utah rivalry on many levels. Remember that the University of Utah was in Utah before BYU. Illustrious alums were James E. Talmage, Henry Eyring, a noted scientist, and many others.

I know technically BYU is rated very high as a Utah school, but realistically, few Utahns can get in as undergrads. It is mainly a school for out-of-state members of the church.

Enough of this comparison already!

It is a great comparison, because both schools make each other so much better. I love BYU because it made my favorite school, Utah, better. In football and everything else.
