The Holy War is the name given to the BYU–Utah football rivalry. It is an American college football rivalry game played by the Brigham Young University (BYU) Cougars and University of Utah Utes. The game is part of the larger BYU–Utah rivalry. In this rivalry context, the term "Holy War" refers to the fact that BYU is owned and administered by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS) and the University of Utah is a public university with a large LDS student population. The proximity of the two schools, the athletic successes of the two teams, and the longevity of the series also contribute to the rivalry.

Both teams played in the same conference from 1922 to 2010 and the Holy War game often decided the conference title. Despite Utah moving to the Pac-12 Conference in 2011 and BYU becoming an independent that same year, the two universities agreed to play between 2011 and 2013 prior to a brief interruption in the series for 2014 and 2015 for Utah to play a home and home series with Michigan — the first since 1943 to 1945, when BYU did not field a team due to World War II. Games have since been scheduled until 2028—with another interruption in 2022 and 2023 for Utah to play a home and home series with Florida.

The two-year hiatus was unexpectedly cut short when the 2015 Las Vegas Bowl pitted BYU against Utah, creating the "Holy War in Sin City" in the postseason.
