The game at Texas received the most votes (46%), followed by the game versus TCU in Cowboys Stadium with 39%. The remaining 15% of the vote was split between Utah (5%), at Ole Miss (4%), at Hawaii (3.3%), and at Oregon State (2.7%).
For the first time in a while, I disagree with the consensus.
TCU will be the hardest game. Until BYU can break the Horned Frog curse, I don't see how any game will be harder, even as optimistic as I am this year with Andy Dalton gone and a lot of other key players from the last few years. In both 2008 and 2009, two of the better BYU teams in the history of the sport were toasted by TCU. A mediocre BYU team went down to Austin in 1987 and beat a Texas team that resembled the 2010 Texas team. I also think the Texas schedule favors BYU. The Longhorns have a revenge trip to UCLA the next week. For TCU, BYU is their biggest game the first two months of the season.
I do have the Texas game number 2. The next three are very close and hard for me to separate: 3. Ole Miss, 4. Hawaii, and 5. Oregon State. The Utah game will be the easiest of the six.
Thank you to everyone who voted. We had great participation this week. Don't forget to vote in this week's question: "How will Brandon Doman do calling plays?"
