Of the 11 games left, four are on the road against tough teams. On Sept. 15, BYU plays at Utah, which is ranked third in the Pac-12 by ESPN. Utah has 18 starters returning from last season and will probably be favored as the home team, according to the article. Games between these two teams usually come right down the wire and either team can win.
The Cougars will travel to Boise, Idaho, to take on the Broncos of Boise State. BSU began the season ranked 24th in the country but dropped out of the AP top 25 after losing to No. 13 Michigan State 17-13. The Broncos no longer have Doug Martin or Kellen Moore, making them more beatable, according to Yahoo Sports. On Oct. 20, BYU will take on No. 22 Notre Dame, a team that looked impressive in its 50-10 win over Navy in the season opener. The Cougars will play at Georgia, who lost its season opener in overtime to No. 16 Virginia Tech, on Oct. 27.
BYU isn't ranked in the AP's top 25 but it got 63 votes, compared to BSU's 79, Utah's 34 and Georgia Tech's 14, according to the article.
