“BYU-Utah is one of the great college rivalries in the country. There’s a lot of history and tradition between the two schools and I’m glad we were able to extend the series through 2022,” BYU director of athletics Tom Holmoe said in a statement.
“I’ve loved this rivalry as a player, coach and administrator, and look forward to the future games.”
In the most recent installment of the rivalry earlier this year, 20-19, after stopping BYU’s two-point conversion attempt with 18 seconds left on the clock.
