Matt is off this week, and Adam is joined by Jarom Jordan of BYU SportsNation for an extended interview.

It's basketball time, and Matt and Adam preview the BYU men's basketball season. Who will step up behind Tyler Haws and Kyle Collinsworth? Can the Cougars unseat the Zags atop the WCC? And is this team a one-and-done tourney team?

They also dive deep into the college football playoff, debating if the committee has it right today and who might make the playoff when it's all said and done. They also chat about Kyle Van Noy and Daniel Sorensen hitting the NFL later than expected, and Jimmer still not seeing much time on the hardwood.
