My alma mater for both undergraduate and law school degrees is the University of Utah. I share season tickets with a fellow alum and we've been following the Utes this football season with increasing fervor and anxiety. They've come within a hair breadth of losing against tough teams on three separate occasions but managed to pull out victories each time. This afternoon they took their shiny 11-0 record into the last regular season game against arch-rival BYU. The Cougars had only lost one game themselves. Fortunately, we were playing at home. I just got back (the stadium is less than a mile from where I live) after a raucous celebration following the team's 48-24 victory. It was a lot of fun to watch them play so well. Preserving the perfect season, winning the Mountain West Conference championship and crushing the Y made for a great evening!
