Utah dominated through the first 75 years of the Utah-BYU football series. The Cougars didn’t get their first win until 1942.
Later BYU ruled for two decades, until the early 1990s when Utah managed three wins in a row, effectively changing the rivalry into a 50-50 proposition. The teams went 7-7 in the next 14 years.
Now Utah is on a 3-game win streak.
Which raises the question of exactly how much of Utah and BYU’s 117-year series matter? Is it the overall record, which Utah leads 56-34-4 (BYU records say Utah leads 53-31-4)? Or something more recent?
