An anagram is like a word jumble; you take the letters from a word or phrase and mix them up to see what other words or phrases you can come up with. Try it for yourself.

One of the most anticipated games on the schedule takes place this Thursday (7:00 p.m. MT, ESPN) when the BYU Cougars visit Bronco Stadium to face Boise State. Start your BYU learnin' with a look at the Cougars' roster through the analytical visage of anagrams. You'd be surprised what you can find out. For instance, kicker Riley Stephenson is nosy.
