Cougars' 2014 schedule a far cry from 2013 slate

The Cougars' 2014 schedule appears relatively soft and includes just one opponent (Texas) that was voted in as a top-25 preseason pick by the coaches. Seven of the 12 opponents, however, posted winning records a season ago, and two teams (Central Florida and Boise State) were just outside most top-25 preseason rankings. A Sept. 6 matchup at Texas and the Oct. 9 game at Central Florida loom large for BYU. The outcomes of those two games may go a long way in defining the 2014 season for the Cougars.

Aug. 29 — at Connecticut (3-9)

Sept. 6 — at Texas (8-5)

Sept. 11 — Houston (8-5)

Sept. 20 — Virginia (2-10)

Oct. 3 — Utah State (9-5)

Oct. 9 — at Central Florida (12-1)

Oct. 18 — Nevada (4-8)

Oct. 24 — at Boise State (8-5)

Nov. 1 — at Middle Tennessee (8-5)

Nov. 15 — UNLV (7-6)

Nov. 22 — Savannah State (1-11)

Nov. 29 — at Cal (1-11)
