Amherst, Mass. • BYU is on a roll, any definition. The Cougars have won four straight, they’ve locked down a bowl berth and helped score their coach a contract extension.
But here the Cougars are, once again, in the Eastern time zone, set to play UMass on Saturday at Warren McGuirk Alumni Stadium, and we probably don’t need to remind what happens to the Cougars when they venture east. But we will anyway.
• On Sept. 28, the Cougars lost 28-21 to a Toledo team that is currently 6-5 and tied for last in the Mid-American Conference’s West Division.
