The BYU Cougars went 8-5 last season, despite being without star quarterback Taysom Hill for eight of those games. Hill is back this season, which should be a big boost for BYU.
SB Nation has the Cougars ranked 32nd to start the season.
USA Today has them lower, at 38th.
BYU has a difficult schedule to start the season, beginning with a road trip to Nebraska on September 5th.
