08:15 AM ET 10.11 | If Bronco Mendenhall had to rank the No. 1 force making BYU's defense so strong -- No. 1 in stopping the run, No. 3 in scoring defense and No. 5 in total defense -- would it be the system, the team's chemistry, or its talent? His first response was to rank none of the above. He said that what makes Kyle Van Noy, Ziggy Ansah and the rest of the gang tick is actually high tech in nature. It can't be defined or ranked as to what is more important, but it is more of a "sequential" undertaking. "I've never coached a team that spends as much time using technology. Rather than coming to the office to watch film, the use of iPads and computers and players communicating with each other about where they can go to watch (film) is something they eat up."

Colorado is nothing but ballast, to balance out the addition of Utah.
