3. Finish Ranked
Finishing ranked for the second year in a row would go far in helping to continue to build the BYU Football brand. If BYU can be ranked, for the following eight and half months, everytime that people would go to the Top 25, they would see BYU’s name.
While finishing ranked means little to nothing to preseason pollsters (unless you are a blueblood program), with all of the returning production coming back next year, maybe, just maybe BYU would remain ranked and be in a great position to start off the season in 2022.
The Cougars finished ranked in 2020, but besides that, rankings have been a somewhat rare goal that has been achieved since the Cougars left the Mountain West Conference.
