BYU is not like most other mid-majors, aka BCS Busters. They were once a powerhouse program years ago and many fans may not know that they won a national title in 1984 and had a Heisman winner, QB Ty Detmer, in 1990.
Steve Young and Jim McMahon also played quarterback for the Cougers in the 1980's, and each won the Davey O'Brien Award, given to the nation's top quarterback.
Former USC coordinator, and current Washington Head Coach Steve Sarkisian was also a QB at BYU and was awarded the Sammy Baugh Trophy in 1996.
If they can run the table, this could be the year the BCS comes tumbling down, and is forced to put a non-automatic qualifier into the BCS title game.
Hopefully it happens, either with BYU, Boise State, TCU, or Houston.
Then we may just inch ever-so-closer to a DI playoff finally.
