So let me take this all in. Of the teams BYU has beaten, they have a grand total of 7 wins total across 4 teams - 4 of which are credited to Utah State. Gulp!

The next three games will be very telling. GT looks vulnerable - so a win there is possible. BYU should be able to draw pretty well in the Atlanta area.

Lets hope they play better moving forward... but so far it has been a very ugly season.

Georgia Tech should be winnable, they just fired their Defensive Coordinator
