PROVO, UtahΒ – BYU football ended its long nine-game, 12-year losing streak against rival Utah on Saturday night with a 26-17 victory. The win put the 2021 edition of the BYU football program at 2-0 on the year and was another validation that last year’s success wasn’t a flash in the pan.

BYU is now building a program under the direction of sixth-year head coach Kalani Sitake.
