According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, BYU has been given 200/1 odds to win the 2014 BCS National Championship. The Cougars are an independent team, so they have no conference title to play for.

The Cougars have been one of the stronger programs in the country for some time. Since 2006, BYU has had a winning record each season, with five of those seasons being at least 10 wins. In 2012, BYU went 8-5, which was somewhat of a setback. Still, the Cougars picked up a bowl win and seem to be on steady ground under coach Bronco Mendenhall, who is in his ninth season with the program.

BYU has been known for its physicality, and the Cougars’ defense was one of the best in the nation last season. BYU allowed just 14 points and 266 yards per game, including just 87 rushing yards per contest. This year’s squad loses a number of starters, with just four returning, but is led by one of the top defensive players in the country in linebacker Kyle Van Noy. Van Noy had 13 sacks in the 2012 season, helping lead BYU to 34 sacks as a team.

Offensively, BYU returns a total of eight starters from a group that averaged 28.7 points and 400 yards per game. The Cougars have a solid rushing attack that posted 153 yards per game in 2012. This year’s squad returns its top three rushes from last season and three starters on the offensive line. Though not known for being a huge passing team, BYU does have a tremendous receiver in Cody Hoffman. The senior caught 100 passes for 1,248 yards and 11 touchdowns in 2012. He accounted for more than a third of the passing offense BYU had in 2012.
