    Why does Cache Valley Daily publish only BYU scores and not Utah , Weber State, SUU, Dixie, etc.? Your name is Cache Valley Daily not Cache/Utah County Daily . It’s insulting to USU and out valley to post only BYU and not all the other college scores. An obvious bias on Cache Valley Daily part. Just stick to Cache Valley please.
