The Brigham Young Cougars' victory over the Oklahoma Sooners on Saturday was their first over a top-three team since Sept. 8, 1990, when they defeated the then-No. 1 Miami Hurricanes.

It is hard to call someone a "BCS contender" after one game (the Florida Gators did lose in September last season, as well), but how realistic are BYU's chances of entering the national title discussion now?

Reason to trust Bruce Feldman: So far (with Sunday/Monday games still to go) he's 15-4 on his first Saturday picks. So to see what he thinks about the futures of BYU, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Florida, LSU, Alabama and other programs, you must be an ESPN Insider. Insider
