BYU football: The 10 best wins of the LaVell Edwards era

3 of 10

No. 8: BYU vs Utah – 2000

Rivalry games should bring out the best in players and coaches, and that’s certainly true for LaVell Edwards and the Holy War. Edwards was 22-7 against the Utes in his career, but things weren’t looking good for Edwards and the Cougars in 2000. BYU football was up 26-10 on the Utes after the third quarter, but Utah came back to score 17 points in the fourth. It looked like Edwards’ final game would be a sour one. But Brandon Doman hit Jonathan Pittman on a 4th-and-13 for 34 yards. On the next play the two connected on a 36-yard pass. Doman scored on the ground from four yards out and the Cougar defense held, sending Edwards out on top.
