It happens every year, and 2019 is not exception.
Utah's pick-6 of BYU's Zach Wilson with 10:17 left in the second quarter gave the Utes the lead, 9-3. The Cougars responded moving the ball inside the Utes' 20-yard line, but a botched snap on third down forced BYU for kick its second field goal.
The Utes took the opening drive of the third quarter down the field for a Jaylon Dixon touchdown.
A face-mask penalty on BYU gave the Utes a first down on 3rd-and-27. But the Utes missed the ensuing field goal later in the drive.
After a BYU fumble, the Utes scored another touchdown to widen its lead.
A second pick-6 by the Utes sent the Cougar faithful to the exits.
Ty'Son Williams scored his first touchdown at BYU before rain and lightning delayed the conclusion of the game.
Utah won, 30-12.

What is it with espn and their fascination with BYU QBs’ mothers?— Rayray (@ryansray) August 30, 2019
I can’t believe BYU ever went away from this shade of blue.— Andy Staples (@Andy_Staples) August 30, 2019
If bushman had got upfield, and got the easy first down, there’s no 3rd and 1 to turn into a 3rd and 6, then 3rd and 16. It’s all about the little things. It’s not easy, your instinct tells you you can get more by going sideways but it’s seldom the case.— Jonny Harline (@JonnyH13) August 30, 2019
Ghanwoloku throws Huntley back on attempted scramble for fourth down. Crowd into it now— Brandon Gurney (@BrandonCGurney) August 30, 2019
OMG. What a hit! And that’s how you can change the momentum of the game. Let’s go O!— David Nixon (@D_Nixon) August 30, 2019

If you go to BYU and your goal isn’t make out with a football player than ya got to check yo self 🤓— Bai (@ayeebaibai1) August 30, 2019
Death. Taxes. Utah getting Pick 6's in rivalry games against BYU.— Mitch Harper (@Mitch_Harper) August 30, 2019
I don’t want BYU or Utah to win I want UVU to storm the field and announce their inagural football team composed entirely of retired NFL players and the Harlem Globetrotters— Eliza (@elizardd) August 29, 2019
BYU now has been in Utah territory in three of its four drives. Just need more points. The Cougars have hurt themselves when in scoring position with the drop and the bad snap. Got to clean those up.— Jared Lloyd (@JaredrLloyd) August 30, 2019
Why give the ball away from your playmaker in the red zone 😔— Joshua Kim (@2pt_5lbtrout) August 30, 2019
BYU playing censored rap songs during the Holy War is like when my super Mormon high school classmates grinded at the dances.— Pokey-Mon (@MsUniKitty) August 30, 2019
The BYU Cougarettes are perennial dance national champs yet the dance cam on the crowd at BYU games is an affront to the art.— Teeps (@SportsGuyRyan) August 30, 2019
What is BYU doing? Their leading rusher and "starting RB" is Williams but Katoa getting 1&10 carries ... and going 5 wide and throwing short of sticks on 3&2— Brett Hein (@bhein3) August 30, 2019

One thing that helps you win these sorts of games is having better players— Matt Brown (@MattSBN) August 30, 2019

Yeesh. BYU will never win this game if they can't stop falling over themselves. Another win coming for the Utes, congrats everyone wearing red.— Brett Hein (@bhein3) August 30, 2019

LETTING UTAH WEAR ALL RED (starting in 2011) GIVES THEM PICK-SIX SUPER POWERS PROVE ME WRONG.— David Huckvale (@DaveHuck) August 30, 2019
It was only a matter of time. You could feel it in your gut at the start of the 2nd half. Like, when are the wheels actually going to fall off? Not surprised at all.— Robby Huckvale (@robby_huckvale) August 30, 2019
At the end of the day whether one group of 20-year-old kids out executes another really doesn’t have any bearing on my life. But it doesn’t always feel that way ha ha.— Jonny Harline (@JonnyH13) August 30, 2019
I have NO patience for this. I’ve waited a decade and that’s long enough. @BYUfootball every leader before you knew that this football team was a missionary opportunity.
