Those who cherish the BYU-Utah football rivalry can breathe a sigh of relief as it appears the two rivals are committed to continue the series.
Pending the approval from the Pac-12, Utah and BYU will play in 2017 and 2018, Utah athletic director Chris Hill said via a youtube announcement on Tuesday.
The teams won't play each other in 2014 and 2015 when the Utes are scheduled to play Michigan.
Hill has expressed concern in the past about over-scheduling the Utes now that they are in the Pac-12, but obviously Tuesday's announcement is proof Hill has a genuine interest in maintaining the series.
So what do you think Utah fans? Excited to see the series will continue? And another question, would you rather see the Utes schedule another big-name team like Michigan instead of BYU in 2017 or 2018? It's doubtful Utah fans will ever have both since Hill doesn't want to make the non-conference schedule too difficult.
