"Holy War?" Utah opened up some shock and awe on BYU on Saturday.
Utah used seven BYU turnovers, including six fumbles -- six! -- to decimate the Cougars 54-10 in a rivaly series that is almost always close.
Just not this time.
The Utes showed no ill effects from their dispiriting loss at USC the week before.
A 14-10 halftime lead transformed to a blowout with 40 unanswered points.
The Utes running game has been struggling, but it got on track in the second half against the Cougars. John White rushed for 174 yards on 22 carries with three TDs.
Utah outrushed BYU 241 yards to 11.
The Utes will get to enjoy this one during an off week. They play host to Washington on Oct. 1.
