The 2013-14 college football season is officially in the books, and this year gave fans plenty of indelible images here in the state of Utah.

BYU beat Texas at home, but it also dropped five games. Weather issues, and a big win over Boise State, also played their part in the Cougars' wild 2013 ride.

Utah beat the Cougars at LaVell Edwards Stadium and upset then-No. 5 Stanford. But the Utes, dealing with QB issues again, failed to get bowl eligible for the second season in a row.

Utah State lost star quarterback Chuckie Keeton to injury, yet the Aggies rallied and won the Mountain Division in the Mountain West Conference. They were then victorious in a second-consecutive bowl game, a program first.

Here's some of the best images of the state's three FBS teams and the trials and triumphs they experienced this season.
