Utah running back Joe Williams (28) breaks a tackle by BYU defensive back Kai Nacua during the first half of the Las Vegas Bowl NCAA college football game Saturday, Dec. 19, 2015, in Las Vegas.

Since 2010, the BYU-Utah football rivalry has come up all Utes.

Could that change in 2016?

On Thursday, Knox Bardeen of CBS Atlanta listed the rivalry as one most likely to change course from recent dominant trends.

Bardeen cites the playmaking ability of Taysom Hill and the overall strength of the Cougar offense as arguments for BYU ending its five-game losing streak against Utah.

The rivalry is also mentioned as one of college footballs "great" and "classic" rivalries.

The other two matchups that Bardeen believes could reverse course are Ohio State-Michigan and Florida-Georgia.

Jeremy Guthrie slams PED use following Marlon Byrd's suspension

Major League Baseball dealt Cleveland Indians outfielder Marlon Byrd a 162-game suspension for a second failed test for illegal performance-enhancing drugs.

Former BYU pitcher Jeremy Guthrie was among players who took to Twitter to express disappointment in Byrd and other PED users.

Guthrie's strong reaction was met with criticism from some followers, and ended with a clarification from the current minor league pitcher.

The best rivalry in college sports?

When the question of best college rivalry is posed, some immediate contenders come to mind: Ohio State-Michigan, Alabama-Auburn, Duke-North Carolina, and of local interest, of course, BYU-Utah.

But a video posted to Facebook suggests one that isn't as obvious.

USA Sevens Rugby's preview of the college sevens rugby championship gives the nod to BYU-California as rugby's greatest rivalry, and one of the best in college athletics.

While the Cougars won't compete in the sevens championship due to Sunday play, California players and coaches discuss their rivalry with BYU in the video.

One player for the Golden Bears said, "You hate them on the field. You can't stand them. But you talk to them after the game and it's like, 'That guy's a real cool guy, and it's all good.'"
