Utah-BYU Rivalry Week Food Drive

Note: My father passed away Sunday morning. There will be a lack of updates on Block U over the next few days as we deal with his passing and prepare not only for Thanksgiving, but his funeral. I know with this being Holy War Week that interest for Utah football is extremely high. For that, I am sorry. I do ask that if you have any ideas, memories and comments you'd like to share on the Holy War, that you do so in the FanPost section and I'll front page those thoughts. 

I thank you for understanding and GO UTES! 

With that personal message out of the way, the annual Utah-BYU rivalry week food drive is underway. Let's win this too! 


Donate to the Utah/BYU Food Drive

The U.S. hasn’t seen an economy like this since the 1930s, and the Utah Food Bank hasn’t seen demand like this since its inception. So, during the buildup to this year’s Utah-BYU football game, let’s build up the stocks at the Food Bank. Here’s how you can help during the Rivalry Week Food Drive (from November 12-27):
