Maybe it's just me, but I think today's snowfall could be worth 6 points for the Utes tomorrow night. TCU's Texans won't take kindly to the freezing temperatures and frosty welcome.
While many BYU fans will be watching the Utes and Frogs tomorrow night, I encourage you to get online and keep a stream up for BYU Basketball's exhibition opener with Concordia University.
Mark Durrant will join me courtside for our internet-only broadcast of the Cougars-Stingers game, which will begin Thursday at 6:00 with the Cougar Pregame Scoreboard Show. The game tips at 7:00, and we remind you that the contest will be heard only on the "X-Stream" audio channel, and not the main ksl.com audio stream.
You can access the "X-Stream" by going to this page, scrolling down, and clicking your X-Stream feed of choice on the right side of the page.
Next Tuesday's exhibition finale with NAIA powerhouse Georgetown College will also be exclusively on the X-Stream. BYU's regular season opener with Long Beach State will be broadcast on KSL Newsradio 102.7 FM, 1160 AM, our network affiliates, and worldwide on the main ksl.com audio stream, Friday, November 14th.
Back to football...
: the top four teams in the Mountain West Conference are a combined 33-4. The bottom five teams are a combined 15-31.
: BYU has yet to defeat an FBS team with a winning record; the Cougars' FBS victims are a combined 19-43. Two of BYU's last three opponents (Utah and Air Force) are a combined 16-2.
: SDSU is the worst team in the FBS in rush defense (allowing 293 ground yards per game). The Aztecs have allowed opponents 15 runs of 25 yards or longer.
: the Aztecs are banged up and increasingly size-challenged up front. The four projected starting defensive linemen average 261 lbs, with two of the front four weighing less than Fui Vakapuna. BYU's offensive line averages 326 lbs.
