Get ready for another late night rivalry game, BYU and Utah football fans.

Sports television giant ESPN announced Monday that the Sept. 21 rivalry game at LaVell Edwards Stadium in Provo will kick off at 8:15 p.m. MT and will be televised nationally by ESPN2.

Of course, last year's rivalry game — won 24-21 by Utah — had a late kickoff and did not end until 11:58 p.m. when a field goal attempt by BYU's Justin Sorensen struck the upright and bounced away.

BYU has a bye this week after downing Texas 40-21 last Saturday, while Utah is preparing to face Oregon State in its Pac-12 opener after demolishing Weber State 70-7 at Rice-Eccles Stadium.
