Matthew Emmons-US PRESSWIRE
Walking you around BYU's 2012 schedule to see how each team has fared.
Notre Dame is silencing its doubters, but Oregon State slipped up on the road. Here was the week 9 action around BYU's schedule:
WASHINGTON STATE (2-6)
LOST 24-17 to #17 Stanford
The Cougars battled hard on the road, but ultimately lost on a pick six in the fourth quarter. Washington State is still winless in Pac-12 play.
Next week: at Utah (3-5)

WEBER STATE (1-7)
Next week: vs Montana (4-5)
WON 49-27 over Cal

Chuckie Keeton threw for 340 yards in three quarters in the romp.
Next week: vs Texas State (3-4)
#3 NOTRE DAME (8-0)
WON 30-13 over #8 Oklahoma
The Irish are legit, everyone. (And BYU held a fourth-quarter lead on them. Ugh.) After giving up a lot of first-quarter yards, Notre Dame's defense controlled a pretty good Sooners offense the rest of the night.
Next week: vs. Pitt (4-4)

It hasn't been uneventful for the Vandals since their last game, however. Idaho has fired head coach Robb Akey and kicked starting quarterback Dominique Blackman off the team. The young Jason Gesser takes over as interim coach.
Next week: vs San Jose State (6-2)

SAN JOSE STATE (6-2)
WON 31-20 over Texas State

Next week: at Idaho (1-7)
NEW MEXICO STATE (1-7)

The Aggies are really bad, and perhaps should cut football altogether. Although they have Auburn next, maybe they can put the nail in Gene Chizik's coffin?
Next week: at Auburn (1-7)
This Week: 5-5
Overall: 46-49 (.484)
FBS Only: 45-42 (.517)
W/O BYU game: 42-44 (.488)
