Overall nothing too impressive from any of the teams.

The best overall record by a team from Utah against the other Utah teams during this time period?


Enough said.

Anaheim, CA

Looks like BYU finished ahead of Utah in 2000, 2001, 2002, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2011, and 2012.

Utah finished ahead of BYU in 2003, 2004, and 2010.

BYU and Utah tied in 2005.

doesn't look like great consistency for any of the 3 teams...

Orem, UT

Huh, so scoreboard doesn't count, but whoever had the most offensive production does? Well, I must be missing something about this sport that I have been watching for ever so many years.

Salt Lake City, Utah

It's obvious that Utah's defense has carried the them. Except for 2004 when the Utes played a weak schedule, their offense hasn't been much to shout about, which explains why the Utes have struggled, and will continue to struggle in the PAC; the Utes simply don't have the horses to keep up with the big boys.

Baltimore, MD

Best offenses in the bunch:

BYU 2001, 2006, 2007, 2009
Utah 2004
USU 2012

Charlotte, NC

Leave it up to a BYU fan to claim a moral victory in 2005. Last I checked, 1 point is still a win.

"Huh, so scoreboard doesn't count..."

Who said anything about scoreboard not counting? The comparison is based strictly on offensive production.

In total yards per game, BYU lead Utah in 9 of 13 seasons, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2011 and 2012. Utah lead in 2003, 2004, 2005 and 2010.

And byu doesn't have the horses to keep with Utah.

So if we're a step down from the big boys.

You're at least 2 steps away!

It's interesting that in 2003 and 2010, when BYU had the worst seasons during the Crowton and Mendenhall eras, Utah's and BYU's offenses were similar in production, as was, coincidentally, Utah State's.

Logan, UT

midpacmajor...The Utes might not have the horses to keep up with the big boys but they usually always have enough horses to beat BYU...... 8 out of the last 11 years!!!

Offense don't win championship, defense does. If a defense can get the stops when they need to, they usually win the games.

And Alabama's defense has carried them.

What works for Alabama is good enough for me!

Sandy, UT


And remind of what the head-to-head record has been in that span. I forget.

Payson, UT

What would be interesting would be to take all opponents average defensive yards allowed per game and se how the teams'. Differentials stack up. Do the Utah schools put up more yards and points than their opponts allowed on average?

A good way to eliminate any SOS issues skewing the numbers. Obviously BYU and Utah played similar opponents until two seasons ago, but bowl games and non-cons also can skew these figures.

Overall, Utah state is looking good and is making some big improvements. Utah and BYU have been trading off who has better O or D.

Funny how in every way, including the annual records...

Utah is in decline.

Everyone knows it but u fans.

And they call BYU fans delusional.

Can't wait to poind the u this year.

Good luck Aggies,

Go Cougars!

Even with BYU's anemic offense last year, they still had better stats than utah.

Wow, so two BCS bowls does not make a dynasty.

Can't wait until until the 9/22 when the ute trolls are all too shell shocked to say anything.

BYU is better than Utah and Utah State. Got it? Good

Northern, UT

Another pointless article from the DesNews...although this one actually contained pointless statistics to go with it.

Ute seniors about to complete the career 4-0 SWEEP!

When was the last time a byu graduating class won 4 in a row?

Oh my how the times have changed haven't they?

byu is a WAC quality program and that is your future
