How BYU's 2012 football opponents fared: Week 12

Record: 2-9, 0-8 Pac-12

Last week: Lost at Arizona State, 46-7

Washington State fans will be glad when this season is over, as coach Mike Leach's debut year in Pullman has been disappointing, to say the least.

Surprisingly (or perhaps not, with Leach as coach), the Cougars do rank 10th in the nation in passing yards per game. But that hasn't helped the team score points or win games. Also, many of those passes were to Marquess Wilson, who has since left the team and leveled accusations of abuse at Leach and the Wazzu coaching staff.

Still, this week brings the Apple Cup rivalry to the Palouse, so the Cougars do have something to play for.

Next up: Saturday, Nov. 24 vs. Washington

It is being reported on ESPN that along with SDSU and Boise State, BYU is in talks with the Mountain West Conference! If all three rejoin, and they can convince LA Tech to come in as the 14th, that would be a pretty good conference!

We're getting the band back together! YEAH. With as weak as the leftover Big East would be, maybe the MWC could get an AQ BCS game.

I guess the highest ranked team in the five conferences (Big East, C-USA, MAC, Sun Belt, and MWC) gets the AQ BCS game according to ESPN.

I know I am going to have a bunch of BYU fans yell me down, but I think it would be great for BYU to rejoin the MWC. They could have the last game of the year against USU for the Wagon Wheel and have a bunch of other entertaining games instead of the fillers they had to do with independence. That conference could probably get a good TV deal, too.

I still think BYU's best move is to join the Big 12, but according to some sources like Bolerjack, they basically were invited in that the Big 12 started talking with them, and BYU basically turned it down by asking for their own TV deal, so the MWC is the next best thing--FAR better than independence.
