Cougars vs. Top-10 Competition

Men's Basketball Blog | Dec 13, 2011 - Posted by Kyle Chilton at 4:28 pm | Updated: December 14, 2011 11:09 am | Permalink

Saturday’s matchup with Baylor is an opportunity for BYU to prove it belongs in the top-25 discussion. The Bears will come to the Marriott Center ranked No. 6 in the AP Poll and No. 7 in the ESPN/USA Today Coaches Poll. Baylor is 7-0 with a Wednesday home tilt against 3-6 Bethune-Cookman.

Welcoming a top-10 opponent to the Marriott Center is nothing new for BYU. This will mark the fourth-straight season the Cougars have hosted a top-10 team at home. In addition, BYU has played at least one game against a top-10 team each season since 2006-07.

BYU vs. Utah: A New Era

BYU will take on Utah in the Deseret Duel tomorrow at 12 p.m. MST. The Cougars and Utes have face each other in basketball every year since the 1908-09 season with the exception of the war-shortened 1943-44 season.

While the fact that tomorrow’s game is important for in-state bragging rights and points in the Deseret Duel, some things have changed. For starters, this marks the first time since 1917-18 that the schools will be playing each other as members of different conferences. Utah is now in the Pac 12 and BYU in the West Coast Conference.

Following a big win over Weber State, the BYU men’s basketball team will head north to Salt Lake City to face off against the rival Utah Utes, their third game against an in-state opponent this season.

“I think you just get excited about an emotional rivalry game even if the two teams aren’t in the same conference,” BYU head coach Dave Rose said. “The preparation for this game feels pretty similar to previous years and we are excited to go up and play.”
