Next up for the Viks, a road game at BYU next Wednesday, 12-12, 7pm Mountain Time start (6pm out here). The Cougars play out of the WCC as well, and are currently at 6-4. They have one game before us, a matchup against their fierce rival, Utah, on Saturday. They are 6-4, but it is a good 6-4. Their four losses have been to Nevada (currently a Top 5 team), Houston (who just beat Oregon), Illinois State there in OT (some have the Redbirds to win the Missouri Valley this year), and they also have lost to Weber State. They like to run and shoot the three ball. They do have one connection to the Portland area, as Evan Troy, 6-5 guard prepped at Mark Morris High School in Longview. This should be a good test.

BYU got an impressive win over their rival, Utah, 74-59 on the Utes home court. This one may be tough.

How did Weber beat them? It will be impressive if we do.

Looks like one needs to upgrade their plan for viewing the BYUTV Comcast channel. Looks like the stream is free if you create an account.

I know a lot of BYU athletes do their mission between high school and going to BYU, but is it me or does TJ Haws look like he's in his mid-30s?
