Record: 11-2, 8-0 to win MWC

Final Coaches’/AP poll ranks: 16/15

Things didn’t exactly start well for the Cougars, who dropped their season-opener at Arizona, 16-13, and then fell 30-23 in double overtime at Boston College two weeks later. But BYU would not lose again, and after rallying around senior QB John Beck, the Cougars reeled off 10 straight wins, including road victories over their top MWC competition in TCU (31-17) and Utah (33-31) and capping it off by demolishing the Ducks in Vegas.
