Thoughts on the upcoming 30th anniversary of 57-28.

There are a lot of similarities between 2018 BYU vs. Utah and 1988 BYU vs. Utah, if the teams are reversed.

In 1988 BYU had a 9 game win streak against Utah. The previous season Utah had come within one score of beating BYU despite fielding its worst team of the decade.

Similar situation for 2018, Utah has a 7 game (8 year) win streak. Last year BYU was within one score of ending that streak despite fielding its worst team of the decade.

1988 Utes started Scott Mitchell who grew up a BYU fan in Utah County. 2018 Cougs will start this Wilson kid who grew up a Utah fan in the Salt Lake Valley.

I'm sure I'll think of more once I get a minute, this is good for now.

utefansince79 icon NEW: That 1987 team gave BYU all they could handle (in Provo too). Final score was 21-18, one of the closer games in Provo during the decades where they simply owned us. (nm)

o NEW: Thankfully, Wilson is definitely no Scott Mitchell. Nor does BYU have an Eddie Johnson. (nm)
