BYU Football: Did you know? (California Style)

The Brigham Young Cougars face San Jose State this Saturday. The Spartans come from California, which is a state BYU has a long history with on the gridiron.
Did you know that BYU is 56-44-2, all-time, against teams from California?
This record has been compiled over 85 years (first game was 1926 vs. California-Davis) and against 15 different schools (Cal, California-Davis, Cal-Poly, Fresno State, Long Beach State, Los Angeles State, Occidental, Pacific, Pepperdine, San Diego State, San Francisco, San Jose State, Stanford, USC, UCLA). BYU holds a winning record against 7 of these schools (Pepperdine, Occidental, Los Angeles State, Long Beach State, Cal-Poly, and Cal), and a tie record with one school (California-Davis). Since 1981, BYU has only played 7 of the 15 schools (Cal, Fresno State, San Diego State, San Jose State, Stanford, USC, UCLA).
