BYU Drops to No. 20 in AP, No. 21 in Coaches

New, 5 comments

The week four college football polls released earlier today place the Cougars at 20th (AP) and 21st (Coaches) respectively.  Oregon, (3-1), Kansas (4-0) and Georgia (3-1) each moved ahead of BYU after each won on Saturday.  Despite covering the spread (17) and beating a previously undefeated CSU program, the Cougars were obviously hurt by Florida State's loss to South Florida.  The Seminoles dropped out the rankings entirely while the Bulls (4-0) received 145 AP votes (good enough for 29th) - just in front of UCLA and Utah.

Both Kansas (Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Texas) and Georgia (LSU, Florida, Georgia Tech) have some marquee opponents in the future.  Oregon plays at UCLA and Washington before hosting USC.  But there are some other schools that could move ahead of the Cougars barring further success in their respective conference games.  Mississippi, Michigan, Nebraska, and Cal are a few of those programs. 

If BYU is going to continue moving up the polls they'll certainly need to dominate in the games leading up to TCU...
