Early Predictions for 2009: BYU Cougars

New, comments

Most would love to have a 10-3 record, but for BYU when there were hopes for a BCS bid and a third straight conference title and a 10 win season was not enough. BYU should have the offense even with their loss of wide out Austin Collie, but it was their defense that held them down. A BCS bid is unlikely unless they are able to go undefeated which would require them beating Oklahoma in Dallas, or not get embarrassed and go 11-1.

Oklahoma They return Heisman Trophy winner Sam Bradford, but lost three offensive lineman.

Tulane Ended the season on an eight game losing streak and only averaged 16.7 points per game.

Florida State They flirted in and out of the top 25 and finished the second half of the year at 3-3.

Utah State The Aggies have a new coach in former Utah defensive coordinator Gary Andersen..\

TCU Jerry Hughes and a few others from TCU's defense are back to try to duplicate their 2008 performance.

Colorado State The Rams need to break in a new running back and try to find a replacement for tight end Kory Sperry.

Air Force The Falcons have experience this year and could cause some trouble.

Utah Their defense should be just as good as last years with 9 starters back.

Wyoming The new coach will try to run a spread attack.

New Mexico Also, have a new coach who will try to spruce of the offense.

San Diego State They have solid quarterback in Ryan Lindley, but that is about it.

UNLV With a quarterback firmly in place, but they lose their top receiver from 2008.
