Tonight's big football game in Provo is the epitome of a college rivalry in that it unites a school and divides a state.
The annual football game between the U and Y is easily the most-talked-about sporting event in our state each year.
Now, one of the memorable moments of the 2006 game has gone high-tech.
Ogden artist Kenneth Jackson and his childhood pals Neal and Lance Brown have formed a company called Last Second Miracles, with their first project a children's book based on the 2006 rivalry game featuring the game-winning touchdown pass from John Beck to Jonny Harline.
The book, describes the final scene, complete with Greg Wrubell's call of the winning TD.
Now, an interactive app with the highlights is available for iPhones and Droids.
The book is available at most Costco and Macey's food stores along the Wasatch Front and at the company's website, www.lastsecondmiracles.com.
They'll also have a book signing with Harline today, noon to 2 p.m., at the Orem Costco.
The trio hopes to illustrate more legendary sports miracles for youngsters. And us oldsters, too.
