The BYU Cougars find themselves ranked 22nd in the three major polls and and at #22 in the latest BCS Standings released earlier today.


The Cougars re-entered the BCS Standings a week after re-entering the polls, while league mates TCU and Utah moved up and down two spots, respectively. TCU benefited from Iowa's loss, while Utah was hurt by New Mexico's putrescence; it's the same hit BYU can expect to take next week.


The Mountain West Conference has teams with two of the top ten current longest winning streaks (TCU: 11, and Utah: 6), and two of the top five current longest losing streaks (New Mexico: 13, and CSU: 7).


The BYU Cougar hoopsters are tuning up for their exhibition finale Tuesday night with Central Washington at the Marriott Center (7:30pm tipoff on's X-Stream audio channel).

BYU's regular season opener is Friday night home to Bradley in the first game of the Mountain West/Missouri Valley Challenge. The Braves had a closed scrimmage with DePaul last week, before staging their lone exhibition game this afternoon in Peoria. The Braves struggled to put away Division Two foe Lewis--trailing by two at the break before winning 68-63.

The Braves return five of last year's top six scorers, and have recorded four consecutive 21-plus win seasons under head coach and former Jazz man Jim Les.
