Speaking of best college football games, ESPNU just launched their Top 25 College Football Games of 2016 and the Toledo/BYU matchup was featured at #24. It aired on Monday at 10pm...I watched up until the final drive of the game by BYU. It's hard to fathom how our defense was that bad, we could not contain the outside whatsoever. I'm really hoping LB Taafe has put a lot of work in this offseason because boy he misses a lot of tackles.
I was there... they were gassed. BYU was too by the end of the game. Rocket D played very well when you take the altitude into consideration.
IMO Taafe will be a stud this year.

Gave up 75 yds(586 Total Yards-248yds passing) of Offense and a score on the first play from scrimmage for BYU. No score there and Rockets are winners in Provo. Got burnt by OU for back to back 57 yd and 33 yd TD's in the 2nd quarter at the Glass Bowl. Again if the Defense didn't allow one of the TDs, Rockets win.

If they hadn't given up any for the year we're undefeated and Top Five.

RE: This seasons best college football games
i was at the byu game. defense was indeed gassed. taafe wasn't the only one. adeniyi only played about 10 snaps in the 2nd half. other guys could barely make it off the field when they got subbed out. long trip, late night altitude. big stage. a couple emotional 2nd quarter defensive stands. but in the second half with a fresh NFL running back coming at you every few minutes cause your offense couldn't score slow enough...team got worn down.

taafe has ability, but had some bad games last year. woodley needs to improve his consistency too and we need better depth for both. is olekanma healthy?

Still only giving up 25.7 points (20.8 in 2016)a game is far better than the almost 30 points a a game over the last 5 seasons. In 2017, UT's Defense needs to give up 20 points or less and get back to being a top Red Zone stopper.

Yep I've always been saying that below 20 points a game is level that needs to be done by the defense.

That would be a top 20 performance so yeah sure. WMU was 15th last year.
