WATCH: Utah stuffs BYU 2-point conversion to win Holy War

The Holy War — the rivalry between Utah and BYU — came down to one gusty play-call Saturday evening. After the Cougars scored a touchdown to make it a one-point game, BYU decided to go for the win in Salt Lake City. Utah was having none of the Cougars’ possible two-point conversion. As a team on the road with a chance to win, it’s hard to blame BYU for being aggressive...

High expectations for Utah pass game after years of futility

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) The Utah receiving corps has been a laughingstock in recent years and Tim Patrick is sick of it. The unit - and the passing game in general - has struggled to progress since the program joined the Pac-12 in 2011. Utah's pass offense has ranked dead last in the conference three times in five seasons and was No. 11 in 2015. The high point was a No. 9 ranking...
