Optimism is high in Provo.
The roster might be as talented as it has ever been. Quarterback Jake Heaps is coming off a second-half of a season which showed why he was the top QB recruit two years ago.
He is complemented by a wide receiver corps with size and a stable of running backs with varying skills.
And the defense, while horrible in the first half of last season, picked up the pace in the second half and Bronco has his boys "playing at a high level."
So what should we look for on September 3 in Oxford, Mississippi when the Cougars visit Ole Miss? What will lead to a win? What things may be harbingers for a stellar upcoming season?
Let's have a look.
