The Holy War


We've been quite impressed with Brigham Young the few times we've watched the Cougars play. The problem is, it's next to impossible to see Brigham Young or any Mountain West team because of the mtn., the network set up by the conference that nobody can see. But that's another story. Saturday was the Holy War between Brigham Young and Utah, and we've somehow found three YouTube clips of the final play — essentially a playground play — that won the game for the Cougars, 33-31. The top clip is from the mtn. telecast and shows John Beck's mad scramble and throw to an inexplicably open Jonny Harline. The bottom clip is shot from the box of a prominent Utah booster and shows the reaction as the play unfolds. The third clip, which you can access by clicking here, is KSL play-by-play man Greg Wrubel's call. It's definitely worth a listen.

And where does the champion of the Mountain West Conference play? The Las Vegas Bowl?!!!

For any old WWF fans, at 0:54 on the top clip, think a three octave higher Randy "Macho Man" Savage speaking...lol...okay, too much cough syrup here...

Even if you're not a BYU fan (and believe me, I'm not), that's still a great video. That's what college football is all about right there.
