6. Third-year head coach Kyle Whittingham has tied his season win record of eight. Whittingham, has produced a winning record every year, had 8-5 last season after going 7-5 in 2005.
7. Utah leads the all-time series with BYU 52-32-4 (including a 3-3 record when BYU was known as BY Academy). Utah has won four of the last five, and the last two games in Provo.
