Boston College:
BC 27 BYU 24
BYU's Defense has a difficult time finding someone to step in the secondary. BC will exploit the weakness and find a way to win.

Eastern Illinois:
BYU 42 EIU 14
EIU is no match for an angry BYU team that seeks redemtion for a close loss the week before to BC.

BYU 35 TCU 24
BYU puts enough points on the board to win. But the game is tied at halftime. It takes some big plays to break this one open.

San Diego St:
BYU 45 SDSU 27
Memories of the Holiday Bowls at old Jack Murphy help the BYU football team remember the tradition as they take advantage of a weak SDSU team

New Mexico:
BYU 24 New Mexico 21
A close game that will probably decide the MWC Champ. BYU hits a field goal in the final minutes to win the game.

Colorado St:
BYU 35 CSU 24
BYU dominates. CSU makes it look close with a few TD's at the end of the game. Curtis Brown has a career game.

Notre Dame:
ND 28 BYU 14
Turnovers are the difference in this game. Notre Dame takes advantage of the TO's and wins.

Air Force:
BYU 52 Air Force 24
After a embarrassing loss at ND BYU comes out with a chip on its shoulder. The long ball reigns supreme as Beck and Watkins have career games.

BYU 38 UNLV 14
BYU rolls and looks to finish strong and win the MWC.

BYU 28 Wyoming 27
The game of the year. Wyoming picks apart our depleted secondary but a last second fumble by Wyoming secures the win for BYU.

BYU 70 Utah 3
Utah only manages a field goal as BYU's defensive line proves too much for BJ. BYU has three receivers with over 100 yards. Utah looks like SUU.

Final BYU regular season record: 9-2
