Jim Herrmann carries a flag as BYU enters the stadium for NCAA football against Wisconsin in Madison, Saturday, Nov. 9, 2013. He played with BYU during the 1984 season.

November is a special time of year, as both college football and college basketball are in full swing. BYU fans can watch their Cougars play on both the gridiron and the hardwood. While the football team is probably too busy preparing for its next game to pay attention to what the basketball team is doing and vice versa, these two squads could learn from each other.

Since the basketball team came up with a big win on the road and the football team didn't, we'll focus on what the Cougars on the hardwood can teach the Cougars on the gridiron.
