BYU has been all over the top 25 rankings this season but has managed to not drop out, even with a 3-4 conference record. The Cougars can step it up in big matchups and do just enough to stay in the rankings.

With a little over half of conference play left, the Cougars are figuring things out and slowly moving their way up the conference standings. The Cougars currently have the NO. 2 offense and No. 4 defense in the Big 12. If they can peak at just the right time, they could find themselves in a Big 12 Championship.

Speaking of the Championship, BYU will have to travel to the T-Mobile Center in Kansas City, Missouri for a five-day tournament from March 12-16 that could define their season.

All games can be streamed on ESPN+ and Big 12 Now. Here is a downloadable bracket to see what games will be played and when.
