BYU Cougars season in review

Sept. 3

Boston College 20, BYU 3

Last week:

Florida State 28, BC 17

BOTTOM LINE: The Eagles (2-1)were impressive in coming back from a 14-0 hole against FSU, but they couldn't sustain momentum. Next up: Clemson.

Sept. 10

BYU 45, E. Illinois 10

Last week:

Illinois State 27, E. Illinois 10

BOTTOM LINE: The Panthers (1-2) left Provo to get pelted by Illinois State, back in the realm of Division I-AA.

Sept. 24


1 p.m., KJZZ

Last week:

TCU 23, Utah 20

BOTTOM LINE: The 'Frogs showed versatility with 3 talented RBs, halting Utah's 18-game win streak. The defense made the Utes sputter when it counted.

Oct. 1

BYU at San Diego St.

8 p.m.

Last week:

Ohio State 27, SDSU 6

BOTTOM LINE: The Aztecs slip to 0-3 after showing well early in Columbus, a familiar story with this Aztec team.

Oct. 8

BYU at New Mexico

6 p.m., KSL

Last week:

New Mexico 38, N.M. State 21

BOTTOM LINE: The Lobos are now carrying the torch for the Mountain West Conference and with preseason favorite Utah losing, the race is wide open.

Oct. 15

Colorado St. at BYU


Last week: BYE

Minnesota 56, Colorado St. 24

BOTTOM LINE: The Rams are 0-2 heading into a non-conference tilt with Nevada Reno, which should be easier than tackling Minnesota and Colorado.

Oct. 22

BYU at Notre Dame

12:30 p.m., NBC

Last week:

Michigan St 44, Notre Dame 41

BOTTOM LINE: The Fighting Irish go 2-1 after losing the home opener to a fired-up but unranked Michigan State.

Oct. 29

Air Force at BYU


Last week:

Wyoming 29, Air Force 28

BOTTOM LINE: If there is any sign of MWC parity, it is this one-pointer and overtime between TCU and Utah this past week.

Nov. 5



Last week:

Nevada 22, UNLV 14

BOTTOM LINE: Losing to Nevada for the first time in five meetings does not bode well for Mike Sanford's coming out party in Vegas.

Nov. 12

BYU at Wyoming


Last week:

Wyoming 29, Air Force 28

BOTTOM LINE: The Cowboys were supposed to be overrated but this victory at the Academy may signal Wyoming will make some noise after all in the league.

Nov. 19

Utah at BYU


Last week:

TCU 23, Utah 20

BOTTOM LINE: Much will be known about the Utes after returning from Fort Worth with a loss in how they prepare and play in a home visit from Air Force.
