BYU football went just 4-9 last season, but the Cougars look rejuvinated this year, and landed a massive upset of a College Football Playoff contender: No. 6 Wisconsin.
The Badgers are the heavy favorite to win the Big Ten West, and some thought this would be the year they could break through and play for a national championship.
Instead, BYU just pulled out a 24-21 win at Camp Randall Stadium.
Down three points with under a minute left, Rafael Gaglianone missed a potential game tying field goal, giving BYU the ball and the giant win.

BYU was a 23.5-point underdog at many sportsbooks.
Wisconsin football is now 2-1 entering Big Ten play.
Amazingly, this was the first home non-conference loss for the Badgers since 2003.
Wisconsin's last non-conference loss at home? 2003.

BYU is 2-1, and looks significantly improved from a year ago. The Cougars knocked off Arizona in Week 1, and fell 21-18 to Cal last week.
Wisconsin’s playoff hopes aren’t totally extinguished, but they’ll almost definitely need to run the table, and get some serious help now.
