With BYU making a top 25 splash, the Cougars are getting more love from ESPN.
ESPN put together a list of some of the most important games for the team’s in the top 25 and BYU is obviously part of it.
Here’s what they had to say about BYU:
“Life an an independent can be a lonely world. The Cougars aren’t in the College Football playoff mix, don’t have a conference title to shoot for and have a slew of games left against teams they share very little history with. Trips to Washington and Boise State provide opportunities for marquee victories, but, after seven consecutive losses in the series, the Holy War at rival Utah is the only game that really matters.”
Whether or not we think so, they believe BYU vs Utah is one of BYU’s biggest games of the year. Statistically, no, they aren’t. But, what they are looking at is the beauty of the rivalry and the seven consecutive losses BYU has had over Utah. Can this team be the team to take back over the throne?
