We interrupt this period of conference realignment, independence ditching and utter college football organizational mayhem to bring you an article that celebrates and remembers the best three BYU football teams of all time.
BYU’s football program has produced its share of memorable moments and impressive talent over the years. Plenty of former Cougars have gone on to professional football careers, but only Steve Young can add Hall of Famer to his resume.
Does that mean his 1981-83 squads rank on this short list of all-time best Cougar teams? Well, his teams did go 11-2, 8-4 and 11-1 during his three-season college career in Provo, but you’ll have to stay tuned to see if any of them made the cut.
Hint: Bronco Mendenhall was not at the helm of any of the greatest BYU football teams on this list.
