Tonight, it's the final chapter of "A Tale of Two BYU Football Teams" - the defense, which has played, ahem, at a high level; and the offense, which has not.
The 7-5 Cougars take on 9-3 San Diego State in the Poinsettia Bowl (6 p.m., ESPN). Rumor is that James Lark, not Riley Nelson, will start at quarterback for BYU.
