Also, BYU was ranked 24th in the Preseason Coaches Poll:
24. Brigham Young (10-3)
Points: 178. Previous ranking: 21. Outlook: The offensive line needs some retooling, but the Cougars get back standout QB Max Hall, RB Harvey Unga, WR McKay Jacobson and TE Dennis Pitta. DL Jan Jorgensen paces an experienced front seven with CB Brandon Bradley helping to anchor the secondary. Opener could answer many questions. Opens: Sept. 5 vs. No. 3 Oklahoma at Arlington, Texas (ESPN, 7).
TCU and Utah also make the list at 17 and 18 respectively.
