Their schedule is better than ours in November. When you look at what Utah HAD, with an exceptional rivalry as the last game of the year I can see how Utah's November schedule can be a bit of a letdown for some fans. Colorado sucks big time as a last game of the regular season.
If you look at scheduling as a whole however, I thing it is clear that BYU will put together great schedules as an independent. Check out the November schedule in 2012 compared to 2013. 2012 is Idaho, San Jose State and New Mexico State. 2013 is Hawaii and likely Wisconsin. Big change.
