After a season of ups and downs we were exciting going into the BYU - U of U game. A month ago we thought we didn't stand a chance in this game. This morning we were optimistic that we could at least give them a good game. We were right. Both the defenses were out in force. The offense had a had time getting first downs and yards. At the half it was BYU 6 Utah 0. We were feeling pretty good but knew we still had another half to go.
At the very end of the third quarter Utah made it on the board for the first time. BYU was at 13. Quickly in the four quarter Utah scored a touchdown. We were only up by three. Then a field goal by us. We were stressing. It seems they always are in the rivalery game. About four minutes left in the game and some blown plays and blown calls Utah makes another touchdown and takes the lead for the first time in the game. BYU gets down field and there are four seconds left. Mitch Payne, the great senior kicker, gets ready and .. a Utah defensiveman got through and jumped on the ball. We lost in in the end by one point after having the lead. It was very very sad. We were so close just a few missed plays here and there kept them from victory. Next year they well meet again September, now that they aren't in the same conference. We will be ready then to find the win once again. Be prepared.... :)
