BYU, Boise State Replacing Holy War With Han War?

Han, the shade of blue. As in both the BYU Cougars and Boise St. Broncos wear blue, and Boise State's turf is blue. OK, you find something better than "han."

Either way, the two have struck a deal that will see them play every year until 2023, leading Utah Utes fans to wonder whether this means the Broncos have replaced the Utes as BYU's rival:

Though there is still the possibility of BYU and Utah agreeing to a deal, especially if the Cougars remain independent for the foreseeable future, it is interesting that, a couple weeks after several subtle hints were dropped from Utah's side that the rivalry might not continue beyond the two-game series already scheduled, the Cougars turn around and invest in a multi-year series with the Broncos.
