2017 BYU Cougars Football Schedule & Analysis
Breaking down and analyzing the 2017 BYU Cougars football schedule
2017 BYU Cougars Football Schedule Realistic Best Case Scenario
The Cougars tune everything up in a win over Portland State and pull off a shocker against LSU in Houston. They return home and own Provo, beating Utah and Wisconsin to become the biggest national college football story in mid-September. They get through a trip to Utah State without a problem, but drop a game, splitting between Boise State and a date at Mississippi State. There aren’t any problems over the second half of the slate, rolling to a 12-1 record – and getting some time to chill in Hawaii after a late November win.
2017 BYU Cougars Football Schedule Realistic Worst Case Scenario
They lose to LSU and follow it up with a loss to Utah in the rivalry defeat they can’t have. They battle hard against Wisconsin, but lose to the Badgers, can’t get by Boise State, and lose at Mississippi State for a madly disappointing 2-5 start. The lose once more along the way – maybe at East Carolina, UNLV or Hawaii – but finish 7-6 and become bowl eligible.
