The college football season always packs plenty of surprises each year.
Small teams upset big teams, conference realignment makes for interesting combinations in odd places and the ever-rotating coaching carousel turns a bit more, providing all of us interesting storylines heading into next season.
It’s been an up and down year, especially for the teams in the state of Utah. The Utes have surprised the PAC-12, the Aggies have sustained a number of crucial injuries in their inaugural year in the Mountain West Conference and the Cougars are taking on a greatly varied schedule in their third year of independence.
