What BYU basketball opponents did last year ...
It seems that BYU did a great job this year of getting a lot of recognizable opponents (Boise, SDSU, Nevada, UNLV) that are also winnable games. Only 3 of BYU's opponents (Houston, Nevada, USU) played in the NCAA tournament last year (could play 2 more depending on Maui) and none played in the NIT. While the travel is a little crazy in November, BYU doesn't have to leave Utah from Thanksgiving until after New Years. I think that all the December travel last year played a roll in BYU's OOC struggles and I'm glad to see that reversed. I'm hoping BYU will go at least 10-5 and hopefully better. Someone who has more time could research the number of players returning.

Cal Fullerton - 16-18, finished 2nd in the Big West

SDSU - 21-13, lost to USU in the MWC title game

SUU - 17-17, finished 7th in the Big Sky

@ Houston - 33-4, AAC regular season champs, lost in Sweet 16 to Kentucky as a #3 seed

@ Boise St - 13-20, finished 8th in the MWC

UCLA - 17-16, finished 7th in the PAC 12, new coach

Kansas - 26-10, finished 3rd in the Big 12, lost to Auburn in the round of 32 as a #4 seed

3rd Maui game - Georgia, Dayton, Michigan State, or Virginia Tech

Montana Tech - 17-15, NAIA school

@ Utah - 17-14, finished 3rd in the PAC 12, lost to Oregon in the first round of the PAC 12 tournament

UNLV - 17-14, lost in the first round of the UNLV Invitational/MWC tournament

Nevada - 29-5, MWC regular season champs, lost as a #7 seed to Florida

Utah State - 28-7, MWC regular season and tournament champs, lost as #8 seed to Washington

Weber State - 18-15, finished 4th in the Big Sky, lost in the semi's of the conference tournament
