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

Men's Basketball Blog | Dec 09, 2011 - Posted by Kyle Chilton at 4:39 pm | Permalink

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.
