Best USU vs BYU game of the decade

Post by hipsterdoofus21 » April 7th, 2020, 12:47 am

2010: Diondre Borel runs all over them. Aggies end 17 year drought


2014: Vigil Surprise and Garretson Air Raid derail BYU's dream season and spoil Jim Mcmahon night.


2017: Turnover Palooza, Aggies force 7 turnovers, the bulk coming in the final minutes of the 1st half. Jalen Davis and the defense take over after the Aggies go down 21-7. Two pick 6s for Jalen


2018: Left No Doubt. Aggies dominate BYU in Provo. First back to back wins for football in 40+ years. Love, Thompson and Co could not be stopped.

Went with 2018.

2010 was great because it was the first in a long time and made me feel confident in GA as a coach knowing we were making strides but we still finished 4-8 that year I think and BYU was just ok if I recall

2017 was fun but sort of a weird game. Neither team was really good and they were down to their scrubs at QB at one point.

2014 was really fun. They were ranked and thought they had a great team and Heisman candidate but I prefer 2018. Just dominating them in every way start to finish was just too good.

Can I vote for them all? We didn't have four wins in the 3 decades prior to 2010, nice to have options from which to choose. It's been a good decade, hoping the next will be great.

2014. It meant so much to the program, to all of us who had suffered so much for so long at the hands of a parvenue upstart nouveau riche bunch of whiny scumbucket bougars. Finally. Vindication.

2014. No question.

All of them were a lot of fun. But I went with 2018 because it was just such a solid win all the way around. No excuses, no "you got lucky". Just pure domination by the Aggies in Provo.

It was a hard decision for sure.

I was at the 2010 and I was there in ‘93 as well. It had been so long with so many close calls. Dominating their phenom Heaps and just blowing them out was surreal.

2014 was so surprising. We’d lost Chuckie. We had just lost a heart breaker against Arkansas St which gave me no hope against #18 BYU in Provo no less. That game plan was so ballsy and creative by Wells and his staff. I wish Wells would’ve bottled up whatever creativity, assertiveness, and fire he had for that game and carried throughout his tenure. Nick Vigil coming out of nowhere to bulldoze would be tacklers and Garretson balling out all game.

In the end I went with 2018 though. Like others have said it was great to dominate from start to finish. No excuses from Zoob Nation. No QB injury. Some serious neck stepping.

I have to say the 2014 game was my favorite! Huge underdogs, creative offense with Vigil, and taking them down in Provo! I will never forget when i accidentally hit my head on the ceiling of our apartment in celebration of one of Garretson's long ball TDs! Awesome!

I loved beating them with what would be a 4-8 team. That was fantastic. The others were also glorious. I also lived beating them with their heisman favorite. Darrel going off would be my second favorite.

I voted 2014. But now I've watched all 4 videos, and the one that almost made me cry for joy was 2010. The emotions of ending that 17 year drought are still strong, even with it being 10 years ago...

I was in the MTC during the 2014 game. One of the Elders in our dorm floor snuck in one of those small portable radio devices and so we all listened to it live and could hear the stadium across the street react simultaneously during the call. None of us could believe what was happening.

Lol fun memories. Definitely my vote for best BYU win of the decade.

2010: I was 15 and had been an Aggie fan all my life but this game made me a die hard. My dad had press box passes and we watched the game from the old press box.

2014: One of the first away games I’ve been to. Front row of the USU student section in Provo was an experience I will never forget.

So hard to choose between the two.

That's awesome! I was on my mission in 2010, but was able to watch the wins in 14,17, and 18 live. 14 was a blast and was definitely unexpected, but the win in 2018 was hands down my favorite. By the 4th quarter there were almost more Aggies in the stands and the place was rocking.

Well, moments from all four of those games are in the tournament and really the cornerstone of the tournament. It will be interesting to see which one wins the whole thing, or one from Utah or another game will win it! Robert Turbin's 80 yard run, despite the fact that we lost that game in the end, has already defeated the Woodward interception in a bowl game we won, to advance to the second round. We'll have to see how that does going up against Chuckie's overtime scramble against Utah!

Dude, I was in the MTC as well! I remember right before lights out there was a group of us standing right next to the fence of the MTC trying to hear the score or any kind of action coming from the stadium. Unfortunately, it turned out to be halftime. Well, a dear blessed angel walked by the fenceline (we had the closest living quarters to the stadium too, so it worked out nicely). She asked, "Do you Elders want to know the score?" Of course, we agreed. " I have bad news. The Aggies are winning 28-14." I let out a yelp as I was the only Aggie fan in a group of about 14 of us. I was then stoned by a pack of skittles. I went to bed that night praying that we would be able to pull it off. When we went to breakfast the next day I asked a cafeteria worker if they knew the final score and that's when it was confirmed to me that we won!

Great idea for a poll. I went with ‘14 edging out ‘10. Both were huge wins for the program. But in 2014 BYU had just beat Texas in Austin, they were ranked 18th, and there was playoff talk. Hans Olson had said “BYU just needs to get off the bus.” USU hadn’t won in Provo since 1978. USU was looking decent but was playing their backup QB.
Then it was USU who dominated both sides of the ball. Garretson was dropping long ball dimes, and Wells completely out coached Mendenhall. The Vigil package was absolutely brilliant. Great memories for me in 2014. Living in Utah County made it that much sweeter. I wore Aggie gear everyday for a couple of weeks after that one.

2010 was big because it was the starting point of our program leaving the dark days of Aggie Football.

2018 was big because we dominated them in every aspect of the game and the zoobs couldn’t make any excuses. We were the better team and everyone knew it.

But....2014 was by far the most fun. It was a huge upset and we exposed the weaknesses on their team that future opponents were able to take advantage of. We ruined their dream season and it was amazing.

Which one was the year that the BYU pregame show was asking if we would even score a touchdown and one of the guys saying he didn't think we would have 100 yards on offense? I recognize it was homers being homers but it sure was nice to see the pregame and then the halftime discussion basically asking what just happened? Wiped the smugness off their face for a few minutes anyway.

Was there for 2014 and 2018. Both were great fro different reasons. I enjoyed 2018 a little better because it was pure dominance. That and the coug fan next to me was an (I can't express myself without swearing). It was fun to wish him on his way as he left early.

I do remember that. Couldn't understand why they felt so confident. They had a strange win against Wisconsin leading up to it but for the most part they looked like the same team we saw in 2017. USU was rolling all year.

The 2014 was definitely the best win of the decade. I was lucky enough to be there with my Dad and nobody had us winning that game. I think byu was ranked, undefeated and 21 point favorites going into the game. We came in and gave them a smackdown. It was awesome seeing the cougar fan base quiet as you see the Aggie fans around the stadium do the scotsman over and over. It was a great memory.
