Awkward video: Utah coach compliments Shannon Spake on her leather pants
The rivalry between Utah and BYU is called ‘The Holy War’ — and for good reason.
The two schools are exceptionally bitter foes. Familial ties weave in and out of both institutions throughout the state. If one is a resident in the state of Utah, more often than not, the allegiance is to one of these two programs.
Utah won this hotly-contested game by a score of 20-19 — when the Utes foiled BYU’s two-point conversion attempt with less than a minute remaining.
As the contest ended, the crowd at Rice-Eccles Stadium in Salt Lake City erupted. Thousands of fans ran onto the field in a joyous manner to celebrate the victory.

It’s pretty hysterical.
