The 2013-14 college football season is officially in the books, and this year gave fans plenty of indelible images here in the state of Utah.

BYU beat Texas at home, but it also dropped five games. Weather issues, and a big win over Boise State, also played their part in the Cougars' wild 2013 ride.

Utah beat the Cougars at LaVell Edwards Stadium and upset then-No. 5 Stanford. But the Utes, dealing with QB issues again, failed to get bowl eligible for the second season in a row.

Utah State lost star quarterback Chuckie Keeton to injury, yet the Aggies rallied and won the Mountain Division in the Mountain West Conference. They were then victorious in a second-consecutive bowl game, a program first.

Here's some of the best images of the state's three FBS teams and the trials and triumphs they experienced this season.

"Married rivals" may seem to be a funny picture, but why does the wife get to call her husband stupid in public? Everyone would be upset if it went the other way, no matter what the teams were. Somehow it got to be acceptable to call men stupid, but not women.

Washington, UT

@PookyBear84010 He did spell "Cougers" wrong.

West Point, UT

Point well taken, PookyBear. However, I thought the 'stupid' part of this was that he had misspelled 'Cougars' on his sign (C-O-U-G-E-R-S). Makes you wonder whether there was really a B.Y.U. fan between the two of them, doesn't it?

New to Utah

These were great pictures & reminded me how great
college football is. Chuckle Keaton's injury didn't stop the
Aggies who finished strong. BYU played lights out against Boise
State & Texas but fell apart @Notre Dame,Badgers & UW. Utah found
a way to beat BYU @ LES & the Aggies @RES but other than
Stanford it was downhill for the Utes. College football is such a
great sport thanks for the recap in pictures.
