Interesting dynamic at Terminal B in the Salt Lake City International Airport earlier today. A group of BYU fans sat on one side of the aisle, waiting to board a flight to Austin, Texas, for the game against the Longhorns. On the other side, about a dozen Ute fans have gathered, waiting for a flight to Los Angeles, where Utah meets USC on Saturday in the Coliseum. No fights were reported — just a few menacing stares. Maybe they are saving it for next week. What's the most famous game ever in the Utah-BYU rivalry? One candidate is the 2006 game in which John Beck found Jonny Harline alone in the end zone for the game-winning touchdown pass, and a 33-31 BYU win. A couple of BYU fans, Neal Brown of Tooele and Lance Brown of Lehi, have authored a children's book called "The Answered Prayer" that brings back that famous play. Lance Brown says Harline will conduct two book signings during rivalry week in Utah County. The first is Thursday, Sept. 15, at the Costco in Lehi from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. The second is on game day, Sept. 17, at the Costco in Orem from noon to 2 p.m.
