(Trent Nelson | The Salt Lake Tribune) Utah's John White runs for a touchdown in the fourth quarter. BYU's Spencer Hadley gives chase. BYU vs. Utah, college football in Provo, Utah, Saturday, September 17, 2011.
This weekend on TV: Cougars, Utes, Aggies (and Trojans) take center stage

There's a little football game of some local interest on Saturday night - Utah at BYU (8:15 p.m., ESPN2). Here's hoping there's no two-hour weather delay in Provo this week.

It's been somewhat overshadowed by the BYU-Utah game, but don't overlook Utah State at USC (Saturday, 1:30 p.m., ABC/Ch. 4). It's a big game and a chance for great national exposure for the Aggies.
