Football 'Holy War' Comes To Salt Lake

They will be playing football On The Hill Saturday, in Rice Eccles Stadium at the University of Utah. It is the annual holy war between the Utes and Brigham Young University - a game that has evolved into one of the premier rivalries in the United States.

The struggle is more intense this year because a lot is riding on the game, including the Mountain West Conference title and a potential invitation to a BCS bowl. San Diego Union-Tribune writer Brent Schrotenboer summed it up this way: "Never in the 10-year history of the Mountain West Conference has there been a game bigger than this." Read his column: One more win, Utes likely in BCS.

There will be crowds and traffic congestion and screaming fans. If you need to be in that part of Salt Lake City on Saturday then be ready for anything.

Kickoff is set for 4 pm.
