Thanks for bringing up our NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP in football. I'm glad that still rings true with ute fans. Sometimes I forget what it was like in 1984 but the ute fans always like to bring it up to remind me that BYU was NATIONAL CHAMPIONS in football. Good times.

Dave Rose era (recent history)

BYU 230-76(75%), 6 going on 7 NCAAs, 9 straight 20+ win seasons, 4 conf champs, 12-4 vs Utah
Utah 136-146(48%), 1 NCAA, 6 losing seasons, 1 conf champ, 4-12 vs BYU

It's hilarious how, under the crimson bubble, nothing before 2004 counts in football and nothing after 2005 counts in basketball. 1984 and 1996 are ancient history in football. 1944 and 1998 are like yesterday in basketball.

I'll take, any day, a CONSENSUS National Championship won playing a full slate of real teams and recognized by EVERY major national organization of the day...

BYU's 1984 record versus major college teams - 13-0

over a dubious NCAA championship won playing the weakest field in NCAA tournament history after playing an entire slate of pickup games.

Utah's 1944 record versus major college teams - 4-1
