      BYU makes USA Today’s week 13 “Misery Index”.


      BYU: The so-called “Holy War” series has only grown more bitter since Utah and BYU went their separate ways in 2010. Or, more to the point, since Utah got promoted to the Pac-12 and BYU went off into independence purgatory, adding a layer of jealousy to the contempt. Because of its more high-profile schedule, Utah doesn’t really need to play BYU anymore, but the Cougars need this game desperately — and they keep finding ways to lose it in crushing fashion.

      Between 2012 and 2017, Utah won five straight meetings over BYU by a combined 24 points. But nothing will compare to Saturday, when BYU had a 27-7 lead late in the third quarter before giving up touchdowns on four straight series to hand the Utes a 35-27 win. BYU’s offense completely collapsed in the fourth quarter, running 19 plays for 44 yards, which will register as another major blow to the psyche of a fan base that has absorbed a lot of disappointment over the last decade in this rivalry.

      I don’t see how everyday isn’t miserable for them.
