BYU Turns Page On Irish, Look Ahead To Yellow-Jackets
(KUTV) For BYU, the price of independence is the strength of their schedule. Play and beat quality opponents and the Cougars will be rewarded in the national polls and land a high-profile bowl game.
And perhaps that's the downside too, is the strength of their scheduled.
When you play strong quality opponents, like the Cougars have this season, getting wins over a good team has been tough for the Cougars.
Three of BYU's four losses this season have come by a margin of 3-points or less. And no loss this season for BYU was more gut-wrenching than Saturday's 17-14 defeat at Notre Dame.
But, this week the Cougars have a chance to ease that pain with a win over another strong opponent in Georgia Tech.
