An article from The Salt Lake Tribune reporting on the inaugural game.

For much of its history, whenever the two teams played in Salt Lake City, it was held on Thanksgiving Day. However, this aspect of the rivalry ended in 1958. Since 1959, no meeting has been played on Thanksgiving Day; and more recently, the meeting has been held in September as one of the first games of the season for both teams. Utah and Utah State have not competed in the same conference since 1961, meaning each meeting since then has been a voluntary non-conference game.

In the 1970s, Utah and its fans turned their sights towards Brigham Young University as their biggest rival, and the Holy War became the main rivalry in the state of Utah.[2]

Following the Utes' 2015 win, no further meetings have been scheduled, and it is unclear when the rivalry will resume.[3]

It is the oldest contest in the Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) of NCAA Division I college football, between two public universities, in the same state, that have a game named "University of _ vs. _ State University."

Game resultsEdit

Until 1957, the Aggies were known as the Utah State Agricultural College, or Utah A.C.
