One bowl projection has the Cougars facing Kansas in the Armed Forces Bowl, a matchup that could be a preview of a Big 12 Conference game next fall after BYU, currently an independent, begins its new conference affiliation.

“Very, very (high),” he noted of his excitement level to be facing Stanford. “It’s back to the Bay.”
