Don’t kid yourself. This is one of the best games of the night, and it’s got it all. These two teams really don’t like each other, and they both have very exciting quarterbacks that can get the job done both with their arm and their legs. Sure, we haven’t seen much successful passing out of QB Taysom Hill and the Cougars, but the talent is definitely there to do some damage. He and RB Jamaal Williams both have over 300 yards on the ground in just two games this year, and though one of those games turned out to be a joke against the Texas Longhorns, the other was a tough road game against the Virginia Cavaliers that could have been won had the team converted more in the red zone when it had its chances.
Utah seems to have a team this year that is going to stop no one but score a ton. It’s not a mistake that last week’s game against the Oregon State Beavers ended up going to overtime with 90 points on the board before the extra frame. This has a tendency of being quite the close game, and back to back meetings have exceeded the ‘total’. QB Travis Wilson and the gang will get their 30 on the board, and if you believe that BYU has a chance at covering, you have to like the ‘over’ as well. This is a game that should get comfortably past the number when push comes to shove.
