We have seen this type of play from BYU in the past, so don’t be all that alarmed over the fact that the team was beaten by 18 last week by the Oregon State Beavers. The Cougars were looking ahead to their game with the Boise State Broncos back on September 20th, and the week before, they were beaten by the Utah Utes, a team that they clearly overlooked. We think that the trip to South Bend was considered a heck of a lot more important in spite of the fact that Oregon State was also a Top 10 team in the country. The Golden Domers just have to give up some points at some point. The defense hasn’t allowed a touchdown in a month, and the team still hasn’t conceded a rushing touchdown. However, the Stanford Cardinal really found a way to give Notre Dame a tough time, and that’s tape that is going to be watched all week long by the BYU staff. This isn’t Upset City waiting to happen, but it should be a cover for the visitors against a relatively big number.
BYU @ Notre Dame Pick: BYU +14
BYU @ Notre Dame Score Prediction: Notre Dame 23 – BYU 17
