Found September 16, 2012 on Throw The Flag:
It’s the holy war between BYU and Utah came down to the 4th quarter kick. Of course in a rivalry game, anything can happen and it did. Utah rushed the field after a missed BYU kick and then the officials had to tell them that they had to re-kick the field goal in better field position after having it blocked. I know this sounds crazy but it really happened. So Brigham Young University had a closer kick to make with all the pressure on and not only did the kicker miss but he hit the goal post after the penalty. The Utah Utes actually stormed the field at the right time this time. A general rule for the fans is don’t ever storm the field. Bad things happen. There are cops. They take video. They are there to make sure you get in legal trouble. Stay in the stands and enjoy the victory.
