This week's schedule kicks off tonight as BYU hosts Mississippi State, No. 21 Utah hits the road to face Oregon State, while Utah State has the week off. Other games this week are: No. 1 Alabama at No. 9 Tennessee, former BYU head coach Bronco Mendenhall and Virginia hosting Pittsburgh, and No. 2 Ohio State visiting No. 8 Wisconsin.
Few predicted BYU's win on the road over Michigan State, Florida State's 1 point win over Miami and Utah State's road loss to Colorado State. The majority favorite did win in the Utah vs. Arizona game as well as Texas A&M beating Tennessee in double overtime.
The Detroit Lions ended a three-game losing streak Sunday and handed the Philadelphia Eagles their first loss of the season with a 24-23 victory at Ford Field — and with the most former Utah college football players on roster in the NFL.
This week's schedule is highlighted by two Top 25 matchups, including No. 23 Florida State at No. 10 Miami rivalry and No. 9 Tennessee at No. 8 Texas A&M. Local games this week are BYU at Michigan State, No. 24 Utah hosting Arizona and Utah State on the road against Colorado State.
