As the excitement of a new college football season begins to build, we might pause to remember that an education is the primary reason for the existence of universities.

Congratulations to BYU, ranked ninth in Money magazine's August issue, which listed "the best colleges for your money." That UC Berkeley, Yale, Notre Dame, UCLA, etc., are among those trailing is an indication of the achievement by BYU.

Go Cougars, on the field as well as in the classroom.
