During basketball season, we gave you the West Coast Walkthrough. In football season, without the tethers of conference affiliation, we will instead take you around BYU's 2012 schedule to see how each team fares each week.
Oregon State and Notre Dame continue their climb, while Georgia Tech keeps sliding. Here was the week 6 action around BYU's schedule:

LOST 19-6 to #14 Oregon State
Mike Leach was forced to switch back to Jeff Tuel after Connor Halliday proved ineffective. Tuel moved the offense better, but couldn't get in the endzone.
