This is the fourth consecutive week BYU is ranked after they entered the polls in week 3 with a win over Utah. BYU’s best win is over 5-1 Arizona State, who climbed to number 18 after their win over Stanford.
BYU will get a tough road test this week versus Baylor, who is 5-1 after a blowout win over West Virginia. The Bears sit just outside the AP Poll at number 28. Baylor has a balanced offense under former OC Jeff Grimes and are much improved after a 2-7 year in 2020.
No other BYU opponents are in the AP Top 25. Washington State moved 3-3 after a win over Oregon State and Virginia is 4-2 after a close road win over Louisville. BYU’s last opponent, USC, is 3-3 after getting walloped by Utah.
