Last week:

Boston Coll. 44Army 7

BOTTOM LINE: The Eagles (2-0) are flying high but will be tested next week when they host Florida State in their first-ever Atlantic Coast Conference game.

Sept. 10

BYU 45E. Illinois 10

BOTTOM LINE: At least the Panthers (1-1) received a large paycheck. They return to I-AA competition when they face Illinois State.

Sept. 24


1 p.m., KJZZ

Last week:

SMU 21 TCU 10

BOTTOM LINE: So much for that upset at Oklahoma. This loss was bad for the conference and takes some luster off the Horned Frogs' game against Utah.

Oct. 1

BYU at San Diego St.

8 p.m., ESPN Classic

Last week:

Air Force 41SDSU 29

BOTTOM LINE: It could be another long season for the Aztecs (0-2). This week they travel to Columbus to face Ohio State, which is coming off a loss to Texas.

Oct. 8

BYU at New Mexico

6 p.m., KSL

Last week:

New Mexico 45Missouri 35

BOTTOM LINE: The Lobos (2-0) earn an impressive road victory against a Big 12 opponent. They host in-state rival New Mexico State next week.

Oct. 15

Colorado St. at BYU


Last week:

Minnesota 56Colorado St. 24

BOTTOM LINE: The Big Ten was not friendly to the Rams (0-2). They continue the non-conference portion of their schedule by hosting Nevada, on Sept. 24.

Oct. 22

BYU at Notre Dame

12:30 p.m., NBC

Last week:

Notre Dame 17, Michigan 10

BOTTOM LINE: The Fighting Irish (2-0) look like a legitimate Top 25 team after upsetting the Wolverines on the road. Next up? Michigan State at home.

Oct. 29

Air Force at BYU


Last week:

Air Force 41, San Diego St. 29

BOTTOM LINE: The Falcons (2-0) took care of the Aztecs but have a tougher matchup next week at home against Wyoming.

Nov. 5



Last week:

UNLV 34, Idaho 31

BOTTOM LINE: Coach Mike Sanford leads the Rebels (1-1) to their first win this season. Next , they travel to in-state rival Nevada.

Nov. 12

BYU at Wyoming


Last week:

Wyoming 38, La.-Monroe 0

BOTTOM LINE: The friendly confines of War Memorial Stadium were very good to the Cowboys (1-1), who visit Air Force in their conference-opener next week.

Nov. 19

Utah at BYU


Last week:

Utah 31, Utah State 7

BOTTOM LINE: The defending MWC champ Utes (2-0) had no problem with the Aggies, but their first road test could be tough when they visit TCU on Thursday.
