All of a Sudden, BYU Has Uphill Battle to Bowl Eligibility

BYU’s football season got off to a promising start. After an offensive explosion against South Florida, they defeated No. 9 Baylor at home to rise to No. 12 in the rankings.

Things looked like they were going to ride the momentum from the two strong previous seasons, where BYU was a combined 21-4. They began to garner early New Year’s Six Bowl buzz.

Then it all came crashing down. First, they lost in blowout fashion in Eugene to the Ducks. There was hardly any shame in that, as the Ducks now look to be a solid team that plays in a hostile stadium.
