Every year the "Holy War" tradition between Brigham Young University and the University of Utah takes place. This year, in overtime, BYU threw the winning touchdown pass which, as you will see, pleased more than one "true blue" fan.

Today is the day of big football game between Provo's Brigham Young University and their rivals, the University of Utah from nearby Salt Lake. That makes this possibly the most important day of the year in what has become an epic rivalry that fans call, only partly jokingly, the Holy War. In preparation for the big game, BYU wraps all of the statues on campus in plastic to keep them from being vandalized. Yeah, it's that kind of rivalry.

Here is the church, here is the steeple, open the doors and see all the people. This LDS church house has a lot of sentimental value for me; I attended church here for many years, I was baptized here, I crushed on boys in Sunday School class here. Those were the days, my friend.

These steps on BYU campus lead from the athletic buildings on the lower part of campus up to the buildings on the main part of campus. The building at top is the Maeser Building.

A view across someone's very large backyard to the rest of town. I like this shot because you can see the Y and the LDS temple, Provo's major landmarks, in the background.

The BYU alumni building was constructed a few years ago on the crest of the campus hill. Although I'm an alum, I've never actually been in, except for when I was picking up my cap and gown. The building's clock tower, however, was quite useful for letting me know how late I was to class.

I feel like there's been a lot of posts with fall leaves lately, but I'm kind of in denial that winter is coming and am clinging to fall with all my strength. I actually love winter; it's just scraping my windshield in the morning that I dislike.

I saw this artist painting this gentleman downtown a few weeks ago. It's not a great picture because I didn't want them to notice me taking it; I didn't want the artist to think I was stealing his idea.

A view down into northern Provo, an area usually referred to as the river bottoms. Pros: nice and quiet, and it's where I grew up. Cons: if the dam gives, we'll be the first to go.

This photo is part of the City Daily Photo theme day for November. For this month's theme, doorways, we took a picture of the front door of the Maeser Building on BYU campus. This is one of the oldest buildings on campus and was the first permanent building on upper campus. These days it's used for honors program classes, which means I mostly associate it with bad memories of lots of homework, but it's still, in my opinion, the prettiest building at BYU.
