With QB Chuckie Keeton throwing the ball all over the field, the Aggies are a popular team to bet on right now. The average bettor will look and see 17 TDs against just one pick for the season and be immediately impressed, and it is also impressive to already see 1,362 passing yards and a 71% completion percentage. However, this Utah State team can run the ball and eat a lot of clock as well, as we have seen four backs, one of which is Keeton, all have a positive impact on this running game. We already know that the Cougars are going to run the daylights out of the ball even though RB Jamaal Williams is likely out for the rest of the season. QB Taysom Hill really can’t throw the football, and the end result has been some lower scoring games.
The USU defense though, is no joke either. This team is holding foes down to just 315.4 yards and 17.0 points per game thus far on the season. We do think that the Cougars are going to muster a little more than that in this one, but not significantly more. BYU has a defense that held down Keeton to just a total of three points last season in what was an ugly 6-3 game. It won’t be that devastating this time around, but it could be another game that struggles to get into the 40s, let alone anything higher than that.
BYU vs. Utah State Pick: Under 57
