SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Utah food banks are hoping fans in the state's biggest football rivalry will give generously and help stock pantries before the holiday season.

The annual food drive that coincides with the football game between BYU and the University of Utah begins Nov. 13 and runs through Nov. 28, when the Utes play the Cougars in Provo.

Last year's drive brought in more than 212,000 pounds of food. Because of the recession, there is an even bigger demand for donations this year.

Donations collected at Utah will go to the Utah Food Bank. BYU donations will benefit the United Way Food Bank of Utah County.
