PROVO -- This week in Cougar Classic, we continue our countdown of the 13 most important wins in BYU history. No. 7 as decided by KSL viewers was a 2006 victory of the Utah Utes at Rice-Eccles Stadium.

It was one of the best games in the history of the rivalry between BYU and Utah. The game went back and forth the entire game, with the Utes taking a 31-27 lead with 1:19 left in the game.

John Beck and the Cougars marched their way downfield, with McKay Jacobson catching a ball at the Utes 13-yard line.

With only one play left to determine the fate of the game, John Beck had plenty of time in the back field, eventually finding Jonny Harline all alone in the end zone for the game winning touchdown.

Questioned after the game, Harline said, "It was in the air and I was trying to judge it. I could tell for a second that it wasn't going to get to me so I had to come down and get on my knees."
