#10 2007 BYU Cougars (11-2)
This was the start of the Max Hall era at BYU, but this team got off to a rocky start by starting the season 1-2 with loses to UCLA and Tulsa. After those games BYU ended up going undefeated but this was not a dominant BYU team as they have been in the past. Five of their wins came by ten points or less, and against bad teams such as UNLV and a mediocre New Mexico Lobos squad.
This team did know how to win those games and for them to win eleven games with a rookie quarterback in Max hall, but BYU introduced Harvey Unga to the MWC who as a freshman had over 1,200 yards on the ground, as well as over 600 in the passing game, and piled up 17 touchdowns -- still a career best. This team won the conference title while going undefeated and narrowly escaped a rematch with a one point win over UCLA by a blocked extra point.
