  • With no major college football games having been played to this point, now is the time to dream of perfection.

    In this day and age of gridiron politics and hoopla, all being overseen by a 13-person committee who will decide the fate of the world -- at least for college football fans.

    So I'm going to take a look at the big games from a different light, the "What Would Be Best For BYU Football" perspective.

    Scroll through the slideshow to see exactly what would happen in a Cougar-oriented world (in order of importance).

  • It's all academic if the Cougars don't win.  Even better, they have to make a statement on a Friday night ESPN game. The offense clicks from the start with BYU leading 35-0 at the half. A lot of subs get playing experience and yet the defense maintains the shutout.

  • BYU doesn't play any SEC opponents, which means it needs the teams it plays who do (like the Broncos) to come up big -- but not too big. Boise State uses a triple-reverse halfback pass to the quarterback with a hook-and-ladder to get the win over the Rebels.

  • In a stunning repeat, the Cavaliers welcome the highly-touted Bruins to town and beat them on a late interception -- after a two-hour lightning delay.

  • In another game that has the non-Power 5 fans grinning from ear to ear, the Rebels go on the road and stun the Wildcats, forcing five turnovers in the narrow victory.

  • The Knights prove they aren't going to go away just because Blake Bortles is in the NFL. UCF leads the entire way with the Nittany Lions making a late push to make the score respectable.

  • Chuckie Keaton's return is everything the Aggies hoped and more as he almost singlehandedly carries USU to the big win on the road against the Volunteers.

  • Cal 16, Northwestern 13 ... Texas 50, North Texas 13 ... Houston 45, UTSA 22 ... Nevada 52, Southern Utah 17 ... Middle Tennessee 35, Savannah State 20.
