How BYU's 2012 football opponents fared: Week 12

Published: Monday, Nov. 19 2012 1:47 p.m. MST

No. 22 Boise State Next » 4 of 12 « Prev
Record: 9-2, 6-1 MWC

Last week: Won vs. Colorado State, 42-14

The Broncos seem to have recovered their offensive spark, scoring 91 points over the last two games. Then again, playing against Hawaii and Colorado State helps in that regard.

In any case, the Broncos are still deadlocked in a three-way tie atop the Mountain West Conference with San Diego State (who beat Boise) and Fresno State (who lost to Boise). But the Broncos are the bigger name, they have a better overall record, and they'll likely be the first choice for any of the MWC's bowls.

Next up: Bye; Saturday, Dec. 1 at Nevada

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.
