Thursday Trivia: 8 Wins in a Season

The correct answer to the last trivia question "Who did Steve Lindsley beat out for the starting quarterback spot in 1986?" is Mike Young. Later in the year, Lindsley was benched for Bob Jensen, but when Lindsley was knocked out of the second game of the year (New Mexico) with a concussion, it was Mike Young who filled in until Lindsley could return.

Prior to 1976, what two seasons did the BYU football team win 8 games?
