76 years ago
1937--BYU was 6-3. Every win was a shutout (Montana, Wyoming, California-Davis, Western State, Northern Colorado, Utah State). Opponents scored a total of 41 points (4.6 points per game). BYU's all-time record was now an even 0.500 for the first time in school history. It was Eddie Kimball's first year as head coach.
