The Deseret Morning News sports staff ranks the top 10 games in the rivalry:

1. BYU 33, UTAH 31 (Nov. 25, 2006) — The last team with the ball wins this back-and-forth contest. Actually, Jonny Harline is the last player with the ball after catching John Beck's heave across the field with no time on the clock. The final play caps a 75-yard scoring drive that answers Brent Casteel's TD catch and run that gives Utah a 31-27 lead.

2. UTAH 34, BYU 31 (Nov. 20, 1993) — Utah's first win in Provo in 21 years comes on the leg of an erratic kicker in Chris Yergensen, who kicks a 55-yarder to give the Utes the victory. Jamal Anderson's 146 rushing yards and Utah's five interceptions help put the Utes in position to win the game, and Yergensen comes through.

3. UTAH 34, BYU 31 (Nov. 19, 1994) — Two nationally ranked teams play through six lead changes, and Utah ends up as the last team standing after Mike McCoy's TD pass to Charlie Brown that was set up by a 67-yard kickoff return by Cal Beck. Utah gets its second consecutive win over the Cougars for the first time since 1970-71.

4. UTAH 41, BYU 34 (Nov. 19, 2005) — The underdog Utes, playing with backup QB Brett Ratliff, storm ahead 24-3 at halftime. After the Cougars dominate the second half and send the game into overtime, Ratliff hits Travis LaTendresse with a scoring strike and Utah's "circus" defense forces a Beck incompletion in the end zone on fourth down.

5. BYU 34, UTAH 27 (Nov. 24, 2000) — LaVell Edwards' last game nearly ends with a spectacular fourth-quarter meltdown by the Cougars. But after giving up a 16-point fourth quarter lead, Brandon Doman puts together a game-winning drive that is kept alive by a 39-yard Doman-to-Jonathan Pitman pass on fourth-and-13.

6. BYU 26, UTAH 24 (Nov. 21, 1998) — A nine-point Cougar lead nearly comes to a complete collapse before the goalpost steps in. Daniel Jones' 95-yard kickoff return for a TD and the Utes' subsequent defensive stand set the stage for Ryan Kaneshiro, who sends a 32-yard game-winning field-goal attempt off the right upright.

7. UTAH 57, BYU 28 (Nov. 19, 1988) — Utah ends a decade of frustration against the Cougars with a shockingly easy victory. Eddie Johnson scores four touchdowns and has 203 all-purpose yards, and the Utes benefit from eight Cougar turnovers.

8. BYU 24, UTAH 21 (Nov. 17, 2001) — For three quarters, Utah shuts down the nationally ranked Cougars. But Doman leads BYU on two late scoring drives for a come-from-behind victory, with the go-ahead score coming on an option play where Luke Staley races down the sideline.

9. UTAH 52, BYU 21 (Nov. 20, 2004) — While the result is lopsided, the stakes for Utah were huge. The Utes blow open a close game in the second half, which includes highlight-reel plays like Steve Savoy's long run down the sideline, Bo Nagahi's fumble recovery for a TD and defensive lineman Steve Fifita's touchdown run. The win makes Utah the first-ever team from a non-BCS conference to earn a BCS bowl bid.

10. UTAH 3, BYU 0 (Nov. 22, 2003) — One of the worst seasons in modern BYU history ends with the Utes celebrating an outright conference championship on a snowy LaVell Edwards Stadium field. The only points scored come on a 41-yard field goal by Bryan Borreson as Utah ends BYU's 361-game scoring streak.
