(Chris Detrick | The Salt Lake Tribune) Brigham Young Cougars quarterback Riley Nelson (13) runs away from Utah Utes defensive tackle Star Lotulelei (92) during the first half of against BYU at Rice-Eccles Stadium Saturday September 15, 2012.
Utah-BYU game ranked one of the best of 2012

The Utah-BYU rivalry might not be as big as it once was in the eyes' of some Utah fans now that the Utes are in the Pac-12, but the 2012 game was one to remember, with Utah taking a 24-21 win after a missed field goal attempt by BYU.

The Cougars had a chance at the 36-yard game-tying field goal when Utah fans rushed the field too soon following a missed field goal attempt by the Cougars, resulting in an unsportsmanlike penalty.

The wild finish made the game one of ESPN's top games of 2012, coming in at No. 24 out of a list of Top 25 games.

You can check out the list on the website. The order of the Top 5 games will be decided through a fan poll.

ESPNU will televise all the games starting on July 17.
