Yaaaawwnnn....


BYU steamrolled yet another MWC opponent. Ho hum.

I hate to sound spoiled, but when there's little to no chance of BYU's opponent winning the game, I get bored.

Wyoming came into this game with about a .5% chance of walking away with a win. After BYU's defense got their lateral return for a touchdown, that was it. Sure, the Cougar offense didn't look as sharp as it did last week, but when your defense forces six turnovers, you can overcome offensive sluggishness.

The last time BYU pitched back-to-back shutouts was 1985, when they beat Wyoming and Utah State. The scores of those games? 59-0 and 44-0. 

Weird.

The last time BYU pitched three shutout games in a row? It was actually part of a four-game series of shutout football, in 1937, when the Cougars blanked Western State, Wyoming, Utah State and Montana.

Next up? Division-II (at least they should be) foe Utah State, in Logan. I'm willing to bet the Cougars get three in a row for 2008. In a year when the defense was supposed to be a weak point on the team, I'd say they're performing pretty well so far.

they had like 200 fans, and they all looked really ticked. FINALLY! A deep ball successfully thrown for a TD

Haha that's pretty good, "Division II Utah State." I'll tell you what though, their students have an absolutely irrational amount of school pride. They must have something going up there, although it obviously isn't a successful sports program.
