We have 4 more games to win before BYU. BUT, they are on my mind. BYU will be our second toughest game after Alabama. They beat #9 Baylor in double OT. I guess it might be significant that the altitude did not seem to bother Baylor. But, if we do our usual hurry-up offense it MIGHT backfire as far a getting winded more than BYU. I guess that may be a chance we have to take…and, be ready to sub with some of our OL. I am afraid the 2nd team OL does not have the confidence of the coaching staff yer other than T. Crawford.

Last season, Bo may have played the best game of his career against the Hogs in Fayetteville. A near perfect game with 2 passing and 1 rushing TD and 80% completion percentage. His only flaw was one int.
