The Bowl Championship Series was instigated originally in 1998 in an attempt to remedy some of the problems that were existing in college football. Before the BCS, the national champion was crowned at the end of the regular season based on a team's record, strength of schedule, and some other factors. One big problem with this system is that, in any given year, there are many unbeaten teams at the end of the year, all of which would be deserving a shot at the title. This problem escalated in 1997 between the University of Michigan and the University of Nebraska.

Among universities in the state of Utah last Saturday, three of them played and only one won. Brigham Young University was upset by the Stanford Cardinal in Provo. BYU opened up the scoring in the first quarter with a 27-yard strike from freshman quarterback John Beck to Toby Christensen, giving the Cougars a 7-0 lead. But Stanford came back later in the first and Kenneth Tolon II ran in a touchdown from five yards out to put the Cardinal within one point. The extra-point try failed, so the score stayed 7-6.
