Ah, nice to see the BYU haters out in full force to comment on the very team and school that they swear they put in their rearview mirror three plus years ago!!! At least we in the Cougar Nation are honest enough to still call the Utes a rival and make room to schedule you in as many sports and other activities as eligible. I like our football schedule for 2014 it may not seem as tough as Utah's PAC12 schedule but I do not think the Utes would go undefeated against this schedule either!!! To Utes fans I say good day and good luck possible hosting one or two NIT games!!!

Go Cougs!!! Rise Up!!!

Our home opener against a power program: Idaho State.

The same Idaho State that only had ONE win against division 1 teams ALL year.

I can see why we Utah fans love our prestegous program LOL!

I don't understand how the Cougars can be playing Cal at the end of the season. It was my understanding that it wasn't possible for a Pac-12 team to schedule an out-of-conference team in November? Isn't that one of the reasons a certain other team is unable to fit BYU into its schedule?

All of this "weak" schedule talk is a bit too early. No, right now it doesn't look like a killer schedule. However, it looks like a pretty well balanced schedule. And for all we know, all of those teams could turn out to be really good next season. Or they could turn out to be really bad. We'll find out starting on August 29.

And about August 29, my first reaction: another season-opening game on the east coast? Uh oh. Remember what happened last year?

cordonblue,

So you're a Pac 12 fan now? Welcome aboard.

Why didn't you compare Utah to byu?

LOL.

Teams that can't beat another join the bandwagon of teams that can beat them.

LOL

byu fans are now fans of 11 of the 12 Pac 12 teams since byu can't beat Utah.

Just win baby.

Utah, BSU, Hawaii all got BCS bowls just by winning. Their SOS was weak but voters count wins. They all moved up in conferences and now they're all losing.

Just win and let the chips fall where they may. I predict that BYU plays in a big bowl before Utah, BSU, or Hawaii plays in another.

"So you're a Pac 12 fan now? Welcome aboard."

Says the fan of a team that isn't in the same conference as BYU and doesn't play BYU again until 2016, yet has already spammed an article about BYU's 2014 schedule with at least a half dozen posts, including, as usual, the first post.

Not the most challenging schedule, and this is hilarious - the easiest game on the docket is Cal - a Pac-12 team.

That's a straw man argument.

Utah has only played Texas once, and it was in 1982. Texas finished #18/17, in the polls. Likewise, the moat recent game against Houston was in 1978, and Houston was a perennial top 20 team. In fact, the Bill Yeoman "era" was the most successful period Houston football ever had. Finally, when Utah played Boise, the Broncos were right in the heart of the Chris Peterson/Kellen Moore era, and they were one of the best programs around. The BSU teams Utah lost to were 13-0 and 12-1. Lets not pretend like any of those teams are even remotely comparable to the ones BYU will square off with in 2014; Boise and Houston especially.

118 - CAL
121 - UCONN

242 - Savannah St.

What's hilarious is that 6 of the teams on BYU's schedule finished last season ranked 98 or lower....
