Comment on this story

The Cougars began this season unranked but quickly jumped on the national radar, being ranked No. 28 nationally as of Oct. 1. The Cougars had an impressive race last weekend at the Notre Dame invitational, beating four nationally ranked teams and taking home fourth place.

Last week’s results have BYU as one of only two West Coast Conference teams ranked in the national poll, with the Cougars behind San Francisco.

The USTFCCCA is scheduled to release its national coaches poll tomorrow, and after the Notre Dame invitational, BYU is anticipated to move up.
