"Little brother is obviously scared of big brother; there's no other explanation for replacing Utah's biggest rival with a meaningless game against a team nobody on the hill even cares about"

BYU the big brother? That's funny! Since when do big brothers consistently lose to little brothers? 3 in row, 8 of 11, 54-34-4 indicates Utah's dominance and therefore makes them big brother. We're ditching our little brothers who still sit at the kids table to eat at the grown ups table now.

"Actions speak louder than words little brothers"

I agree! That's why Utah has dominated BYU in recent years. The Utes can walk the walk, while BYU only talks the talk. Utah's actions on the field against their little brothers speak for themselves.

"The Utes are the team running away from the Cougars"

Running away from the Cougars? That same Cougar team that lost to an ACC bottom dweller? If Utah was so scared to play BYU, then why did they schedule a home and home game with Michigan, and Fresno State who both are better teams than BYU?

"BYU the big brother?"


ONE National Championship to NONE
ONE Heisman Trophy to NONE
SIX National Hall of Fame players to NONE
FIFTEEN national individual awards to NONE
SEVENTEEN AP top 25 finishes to FIVE
TWENTY-THREE WAC/MWC championship to SIX

398-203-4(66%) to 314-257-4(55%) overall in the last 50 years
30-20 head-to-head in the last 50 years

BYU is clearly Utah's big brother when it comes to national accomplishments - it's not even debatable.

Utah is running away from the Cougars because the Utes know that they have a MUCH better chance of finishing 1-1 versus Michigan-Fresno State than they do versus Michigan-BYU; the proof is in the scheduling.

For all their talk, the Utes have no walk.

@ Uteanymous

What kind of big brother consistently loses to his little brother every year? Sounds like a weak, push-over big brother to me.

They're two ways to determine whose the big brother: 1) Which school was established first? Utah 1850, BYU 1875. So Utah is older! Older brother's are commonly known as big brothers. 2) Head to head competition: Utah owns BYU on the gridiron winning 3 in a row, 8 of 11, and 54-34-4 overall. Not even close! By that, Utah is the big brother because big brother's beat their little brothers.

What do those national accomplishments have to do with Utah owning BYU head to head on the field? In fact what does that have to do with anything?

With that, I invite you to come back to 2013 with the rest of world.
