Thursday Trivia: Win-Loss Record in November

The correct answer to last week’s trivia question "What is BYU's record in games played on Halloween (October 31)?" is 7-5. Nice try, Neal. Here are the game-by-game results, with the year that they were played.
1992: W 30-17, Penn State
1991: W 40-17, Colorado State
1987: W 24-13, Air Force
1981: W 31-7, New Mexico
1970: W 23-3, Wyoming
1964: W 28-14, Utah State
1959: W 18-0, Utah State
1953: L 27-0, Wyoming
1942: L 9-6, Utah State
1936: L 18-0, Utah
1931: L 6-0, Colorado Teachers
1925: L 27-0, Utah
The fun thing to do for Halloween is to go door to door saying “trick-or-treat.” Clearly, Halloween games were tricks from 1925 to 1953, but from 1959 to present, they have been treats.

Moving on to this week, BYU needs to post a 3-1 record in November to become bowl eligible this year. Therefore, this week’s question is:
How many times has BYU had a 3-1 record, or better, in November?
Leave your answer in the comments section. Come back next week when the answer is revealed and a new trivia question is asked.

  1. I'm going to guess 20 times.

    Considering the current win streak we have on Halloween games, maybe we should have saved our bye week for later.

  2. And last year we should have switched our bye week and the TCU game last year.

  3. Note: I made a mistake and missed one game.

    I have edited this post to include it.

    I take great pride in providing accurate and correct information. I apologize for this oversight.
