Defense doesn't normally come to mind when one thinks of Brigham Young University, but this year TCU is not the only team with an imposing defense.
In addition to all-American candidate Max Hall leading the potent offensive attack, the Cougars have the novelty of a top defense. BYU ranks No. 2 nationally in scoring defense, allowing a paltry 10.2 points per game, including back-to-back shutouts of University of California-Los Angeles and Wyoming. It would be unfair to classify either of those teams as offensive juggernauts.
