BYU defense leads the nation with 50 takeaways (28 interceptions and 22 fumble recoveries) with Troy Long getting the most defensive points. After offensive line is decimated in pre-season camp, Cougars bounce back from 1-2 start to win eight of final nine regular season games. The Cougars come within a two-point conversion of another WAC title. Chuck Cutler begins the first of two years as a GTE Academic All-America first teamer. Leonard Chitty sets career records for consecutive conversions (42) and for field goals (34). Cougars rank ninth nationally in passing offense and 22nd in scoring offense. Cougars win Gridiron Bowl (the final regular-season game against Colorado St.) in Melbourne, Australia, but injuries prove costly in the All American Bowl versus Virginia
