Breaking down and analyzing the 2018 BYU Cougars football schedule.
2018 BYU Cougars Football Schedule Analysis
– Just survive, BYU. Just survive. Once again, it has a killer start to the season with road games at Arizona, Wisconsin and Washington all to deal with in September. Beating Cal at home is a must, and the McNeese State game has to be a nice week off. Get through September, and everything gets better.
– Facing Utah State and Hawaii will make it feel like the Cougars are in the Mountain West world before getting a week off to get ready for the finishing kick. There’s more MW action with a November date at Boise State coming off a date against the MAC’s Northern Illinois. The back-to-back dates with the Huskies and Broncos are as tough as it gets after September – at least until the finish.
– Building up the wins at UMass and against New Mexico State should ensure a bowl bid, but no matter where the Cougars go, it won’t be as intense as the regular season battle at Utah.
