Both of these teams have strong defenses so there might not be too much back and forth. This is a great chance to get a look at Cougars QB Taysom Hill, one of the most exciting dual threat players in the nation that nobody is talking about.

Ignore the religion jokes and just enjoy the hard hitting action.


When you play the BYU Cougars you better be ready for some physical football. They are not the pass happy offensive team we all grew up with as I think Hill has rushed for more yards this season than all Cougars quarterbacks combined in the 1980s and 90s.

With the tough running Hill leading the way they 12th in the nation in rushing and actually produce more on the ground than through the air.

BYU is capable of matching the physicality of any opponent as they showed against Texas so they won’t be intimidated by Notre Dame. This year’s defense is not as good as last year’s but in linebacker Kyle Van Noy they have a player who can singlehandedly blow up any play.

I think the Cougars are going to be really fired up and Notre Dame better be ready for them.

Notre Dame

I am never a fan of Notre Dame but I still think it is fair to say that this team is nothing special.

They have a couple of nice wins against Michigan State and USC but they probably caught both of those programs at the right time and I am not sure they could win those games now if they had to.

This season was supposed to be the year that QB Tommy Rees got a chance to show what he can do and it has been a roller coaster. Sure he has had some good games but he has thrown a couple of picks in each of the last two games, leading to the loss to Pitt last week.

Like BYU the Notre Dame defense is not as good as it was last year though it does have some nice pieces especially on the defensive line. As they try and stop Hill it will hurt not to have Louis Nix who is tough guy to move out in the trenches.

I expect BYU to be able to run the ball against the Irish and that will be the ball game right there.

Spread Pick: BYU
O/U Pick: Over
Score Prediction: BYU 35 – Notre Dame 24
