Ready for Saturday's big Utah-BYU game?

Salt Lake Tribune sports columnists Gordon Monson and Kurt Kragthorpe are. They spent Friday afternoon's Trib Talk live video chat breaking down the game — the last between the rivals until 2016 — and talking about what makes the rivalry so unique.

Asked to pick a winner, Monson took BYU, figuring that the Cougars will be a little more motivated after three straight losses to the Utes. Kragthorpe chose Utah, reasoning that there's no reason to doubt the Utes' recent dominance until the Cougars actually beat them.
