In my opinion, a nice way to end the decades-long yearly rivalry before a 2 year hiatus.

Frankly BYU ought to use these colors ALL the time. Much more unique than the darker blue, and then we won't have to listen to Utah State fans claiming we stole their colors (which we did, frankly...)

Ute seniors complete perfect 4-0 sweep over our former rivals.

Why'd the deseret news go all the way back to 2009 to get a picture in talking about the rivalry?

Oh wait,...



As a Utah fan,

I don't understand why BYU doesn't wear the Royal blue the majority of their games, they look so much better. Why they ever changed their colors is way beyond me. The only thing I can think of is that you get to sell a bunch of new gear.

Good luck Cougars,
Go Utes!

@ Chris B.

You really need to find a new hobby, my friend.

I guess we need to do SOMETHING different to break the curse. I'm sick of losing to the lowly utesies so I don't care if BYU wears orange, brown, or purple...just win and stop giving gift baskets full of glazed turnovers!

I remember that picture well. "tackling, you're not doing it right". classic.

I'm still waiting for them to go back to the dark blue jerseys with the white number field shaped like a bib. It made it look like they were ready to head over for a lobster dinner after playing the game.

Chris B. goes into an apoplectic rage on Sept. 21st! His face will turn an odd shade of.... you guessed it! Royal Blue!

Mark it down!

Simple answer, that's the last time BYU wore the Royal Blue in a game against Utah, and we all know how that one turned out.

Be afraid, be very afraid!

Chris...because that's the last time they wore the throw backs. That's what the article is about. *roll eyes

Bountiful, UT

Now that is BYU blue. Not quite sure why BYU ever changed to Aggie blue.

Orem, UT

As soon as the royal blue jerseys appeared in the BYU bookstore a week or so ago, this was a no-brainer.

Glad to see BYU breaking out the royal blue to remind the Utes what big time football is really all about - national championships, Heisman trophies, national hall of fame players.

I hope BYU has stocked plenty of jerseys, because they're going to be very popular.

btw, single-game tickets tickets for Texas, Utah, and Boise State went on sale this morning via a special promotion - $100 for sideline, $90 for end zone.

I'd love the game to be played on the field. The coaches and Chris B don't ever seem to get it right. Go Cougars. Please don't disappoint. Play hard every down. You have the talent and the numbers. Now let's play the game!

I like in the photo seeing one ute #18 tackling another ute #12. lol.

Hopefully it won't come down to this, but if the last play of the game is 4th and long with 3 seconds on the clock BYU is sure to pull out a victory. Something about 4th and long, and utah's inability to stand up.


This is news? I guess when you've been owned by your rivalry both in recent times and overall, you have to do something to divert the attention away from the game itself.

Go Utes!!

Farmington, UT

No, we didn't steal anyone's colors. NO ONE OWNS any color. USU doesn't own it, they didn't pay for it, it isn't copyrighted, etc. Gosh, use a peck of common sense.

Any school can have any color they choose, anytime they want. I'm sick of hearing we stole the darker shade of blue. Did we steal the air we breathe when we play in Logan, too? Get over it (there's really nothing to get over)!!

Love the pic; George waltzing into the endzone, while Utah players demonstrate how NOT to tackle.

September 21st is going to be a lot of fun, except for christy and her friends.

Go Cougars!

Ummm, just maybe because that was the last time BYU wore royal blue against Utah, which is the subject of the article?
