...on the eve of "reporting day." Plus, the hoops sked is almost done.
Trivia time: no one actually nailed the answer to yesterday's question, but "byusinger84" came closest, guessing 92%. The correct answer is 91% (90.56%, to be precise). Since 1972, BYU has won 90.56% of its games when rushing for 150+ yards in a game.
Another rushing-related question... since 1972, what is the BYU record for consecutive games with at least 100 yards rushing?

I noted the other day that WR Ryan Neeley (groin) and DB Chris Warner (knee) were off the 105-man roster due to injuries. Neither player is expected to return to the team and it appears their BYU playing careers have concluded as a result.
The BYU Basketball non-conference schedule is all but complete. Here's the way it looks right now:
Fri. Nov. 14: v. Long Beach State
Tue. Nov. 18: @ Pepperdine
Thu. Nov. 20 - Sat. Nov.22: BYU Basketball Travelers Invitational (Rice, Cal Poly, North Florida)
TBA: @ Weber State
Sat. Nov. 29: @ Idaho State
Sat. Dec. 6: v. Utah State (Energy Solutions Arena)
Wed. Dec. 10: v. Boise State
TBA: v. Portland
Sat. Dec. 20: v. Arizona State (University of Phoenix Stadium, Glendale, AZ)
Tue. Dec. 30: @ Tulsa
Sat. Jan. 3: v. Wake Forest
BYU has one remaining home game to schedule, either in the week before Christmas, or between the Wake Forest game and the start of conference play.
FYI, teams are limited by NCAA rule to either: 29 regular season games, OR 27 regular season games, PLUS one "multiple-team event"(including no more than four games over a 14-day period). In this case, BYU is opting for the "27+" route, with the multiple-team event taking place at the Marriott Center from Nov. 20th through 22nd (3 games).
