Most Underrated Rivalry in College Football?

No question about it, that rivalry would be BYU vs. Utah. This year's matchup will go down as one of the greatest rivalry games in college football history. If you missed it, you missed out. BYU won the game 33-31 on a touchdown pass from senior quarterback John Beck to senior tight end Jonny Harline with no time left on the clock. It was BYU's first win in five years and was the sixth in the last seven games between the two teams where the winner won by seven or less points. BYU moved to 10-2, having gone undefeated in the Mountain West Conference for the first time in five years as well. BYU still has one game to play in the Las Vegas Bowl, they will be playing the Oregon Ducks. The offensive coordinator for Oregon is former BYU head coach Gary Crowton. Crowton was at BYU from 2001-2004, this will be his first meeting against BYU since leaving. It should be an interesting and intense game.
