Sizing up the Battle of the Brothers
The Battle of the Brothers - one of the most played rivalries in college football history - will kick off for the 109th time Thursday night when Utah hosts rival Utah State. Utah has dominated the series overall and over the last decade, winning the last 11 games to run the series record to 76-28-4 in favor of the Utes. This season, there is a new dynamic involved as former Utah defensive coordinator Gary Andersen is now the head coach of the Aggies. Make no mistake, though, the Utes want to beat their former coach. "Man, I'm not even going to look at him," Utah linebacker Stevenson Sylvester said about Andersen being on the opposing sideline. "I'll look at him after the game. It will be strange seeing him in blue. I wish him bad luck on Thursday but after that, nothing but the best."
