BYU has been mentioned this week as a NY day candidate. The chances of that are remote on merit that BYU plays no P5 games and no ranked teams.
In order for BYU to even have a hope for one of the biggies, UCF, who is ranked way about BYU, must lose, not once but maybe twice. UCF plays several teams that are ranked, Memphis (never thought I would EVER root for Memphis) and a showdown with #15 ranked Cinn.
BYU plays a common opponent, Houston, both UCF and BYU play @ Houston. So Beat Houston and a UCF loss would help greatly.
The playoff format has all of the P5 champs, most likely a ND as well and the highest G5 ranked team…so there is a path. Go Cougs
