BYU Football Players Excited About 2013 Schedule
(KUTV) After BYU’s Spring Game, Adam Mikulich spent a few minutes with the Cougars looking ahead to the fall and one of the toughest schedules BYU has ever played. The 2004 Cougars played undefeated and #1 ranked USC, undefeated and #4 ranked Utah and once beaten Boise State.
This schedule may not be as top heavy, but it is deeper. BYU opens the season at Virginia and then returns home to face the Texas Longhorns. After a bye week, the Utes go to Provo for the last time until at least 2017 and maybe much longer.
Down the schedule the Cougars also have Georgia Tech and Boise State coming to town and November road trips to Wisconsin and Notre Dame. With a sophomore quarterback and a new offensive co-ordinator, has BYU bitten off more than they can chew?
Adam Mikulich talked to the players and it was unanimous, they embrace the schedule and believe it is a chance for them to make a mark nationally. Watch their reaction here.
