Just a few BYU sports-related odds and ends today as we hope for the rain to stop so the third and final Utah-BYU baseball game of the season can be played tonight in Provo.
* Former BYU running back Harvey Unga is getting another chance to make the Chicago Bears, the team that picked him in the seventh round of the 2010 NFL Supplemental Draft. Unga has twice left the Bears for personal reasons, but was reinstated to the active roster and will participate in the club's offseason program.
* Lone Peak High junior Nick Emery, who has committed to play basketball for BYU, is a Maxpreps Junior All-American (fourth team).
* BYU athletic director Tom Holmoe spoke optimistically Friday about the continuation of the BYU-Utah football series after 2012 (we don't call it the H-- War at The Tribune), but hints continue to spill out of Utah that the Utes might not be able to make it work. Here's a look at the rivalry from an outside perspective.
