Prior to BYU becoming a college football independent the team resided in the Mountain West conference and regularly played San Diego St. The Cougars last season in the Mountain West was in the 2010 year. BYU has defeated San Diego St five straight times and nine time over their past ten meetings. The 2012 BYU Cougars finished a disappointing 7-5 on the year. The positive points from the season was the play of their defense as they concluded play ranking 3rd in college football in total defense by allowing just 266 yards per game. They defended the pass and the run very well as they give up just 182 yards passing and 84 rushing. Back on October 20th, the Cougars played Notre Dame very tough losing just 17-14 on the road as a +11 ½ point underdog. San Diego St finished off the regular season with a 9-3 mark this season. They had a monster win this season on November 3rd as they travel to the blue turf at Boise St and defeat the Broncos 21-19 as a +16 point underdog. A very memorable game for the Aztecs as they take possession of the football with five minutes remaining and drain all of the Broncos time outs and the play clock as they ground and pound against a good Boise St defense and convert passing plays on third down to move the sticks and ice the game never giving the ball back to the Broncos offense.
