The Duel

On Sept. 13, 2007, the University of Utah and Brigham Young University announced the formation of a rivalry series between the two schools. The series - which begins this season - has been named the Deseret First Duel after title sponsor Deseret First Credit Union.

The rivalry series involves the 12 sports in which the two universities meet in head-to-head competition during regular-season play. Multi-team events (including postseason tournaments) are not included in The Duel standings.

The Deseret First Duel will use a system that awards points to the winner of each head-to-head competition. Points won by each sport will count toward a school's overall total. A team trophy will be awarded to the winner of each sport - and at the conclusion of each school year - a granite traveling trophy will be awarded to the overall rivalry series champion.

The Utah-BYU rivalry is one of the oldest and strongest in the country. In November 2005, the Wall Street Journal rated the rivalry the fourth best in college athletics. Thanks to a partnership with Deseret First Credit Union, the rivalry now has an official name and a traveling trophy to signify yearly supremacy. The Deseret First Duel sponsorship is for five years.
