PROVO, UtahΒ – In the first BYU/Utah Tech meeting on the gridiron, BYU pulled away in the second half from the Trailblazers. BYU defeated Utah Tech, 52-26.

Here’s a breakdown of how the game played out via social media.

Pregame Notes

  • First-ever meeting
  • Both teams will face off again in 2026
  • The weather forecast calls for a lot of sun. Bad news? The high will only be 34 degrees today. So bundle up if you’re coming to LaVell Edwards Stadium.
  • Two BYU football staffers (Justin Anderson & Patrick Hickman) and one Utah Tech assistant (Shane Hunter) will wear blue and orange Virginia gear to honor the UVa shooting victims. All three men worked for the Virginia football program under Bronco Mendenhall.
  • Utah Tech has a lot of connections to BYU football. Head coach Paul Peterson was a graduate assistant for BYU in 2006 and is the younger brother to former BYU QB Charlie Peterson.
  • Utah Tech plays in the Western Athletic Conference (WAC). Despite not playing in that league since 1998, BYU still holds the record for most league championships (19).
  • BYU honored former basketball coach Dave Rose as the “Y Lighter” for the game. Rose coached at both BYU and Dixie State when during his basketball coaching career.
