Raise your hand if you saw that year coming for the Cougars in 2020. Now put it down, because you’re lying. The Cougars were right there in the playoff conversation until they fell in that impromptu game to Coastal Carolina. It was an incredible, if costly, move, taken with literally a few days notice… but without it they weren’t going anywhere anyway.


The best lineman and WR are gone, along, of course, with QB Zach Wilson. 7 of the top 10 tacklers are gone on D. Oh, and the schedule is brutal. Time to worry? Nah. There’s plenty of talent on the O line, solid WRs, and great TEs. There are a couple of solid QBs waiting in the wings… this is BYU, after all. Tyler Allgeier is back at RB, and he’s a beast. The O will lean on him while it gets its footing. The improvement of that D… the LBs will be very good, but little else is certain… will determine how successful 2021 is.

If Things Go Well:


A MWC title is an outside possiblity, but a lot of pieces would have to fall into place. However, the PAC 12 will feed on the Cougars.

If They Don’t


If no one steps in to be a solid QB and the D is bad up front and in the secondary, 2021 could be a rebuilding year.



The Cougars may struggle early, but by the end of the year the O will be every bit as productive as last year, if not as flashy. No one will have them in playoff conversations this year, but if they can knock off one of those PAC 12 teams, a New Year’s Bowl is a realistic goal.
