University of Utah athletic director Chris Hill said Monday morning that he will apologize to BYU officials for the behavior of Ute football players following Saturday's victory over the Cougars.

Hill tried to reach BYU athletic director Clayne Jensen by phone on Sunday but was unable to reach him, "so I left a message on his recorder. I'll try to call him again. What I told him was that if there was damage, we want to take care of it. And more important, I don't want there to be bad feelings and have them take a bad view of our program."Ute players tried to tear down the north-end goal post in Cougar Stadium after the game, leading to a confrontation between players from both teams. BYU players expressed outrage that an opposing team would try to tear down their goal.

"It was a mistake," said Hill. "They (Ute players) just got excited."

Hill said he also wants to talk to BYU coach LaVell Edwards about the incident, "because he's the greatest."

Meanwhile, the Utes have their own goal posts to worry about. Some time Saturday night Utah's north-end goal post was vandalized.

"It looked like it was pretty well broken down," said Utah sports information director Bruce Woodbury.

Campus police said the incident was under investigation.
