BYU has a glass-half-full schedule in 2011. It’s half full because there are great programs on the list and a bunch of intriguing matchups. But many of those great programs had rough seasons last year or are in rebuilding mode. And then there are the JV teams that come to Provo.
So which team on the slate is best? Which is worst?
This list isn’t about which teams have the best shot to beat the Cougars. It’s about which teams rank highest, or lowest (looking at you, NMSU) overall heading into the season.
So, without further ado, I present the 2011 BYU Cougar Opponent Power Rankings, in reverse order.
It's a bit sad to do this without New Mexico on the list. I'm positively weepy.
