BYU hosted fellow FBS Independent UMass last week and couldn’t handle the Minutemen at home, losing its ninth game, 16–10.
Joe Critchlow made his second start since inheriting the starting quarterback role. He threw for 257 yards but not very efficiently. It took him 45 attempts (he only completed 21 of them) and he tossed four interceptions along the way.
He managed the game a lot better in his first start — a win over UNLV the week prior. He only completed 14 passes in that game but didn’t throw an interception in the victory.
He was also sacked seven times and lost 46 yards combined. He has to do a better job on the road this week on the island of Hawaii.
The Cougars’ defense showed out last week, though. Save the 13-point third quarter by the Minutemen, BYU allowed just three points in the other three quarters.
Hawaii Rainbow Warriors
After starting the season with a bunch of losses — but high-flying ones — Hawaii’s offense has disappeared over the last month or so.
The Rainbow Warriors were shutout for the first time all season last week at Utah State, who clinched a bowl game appearance. Hawaii only turned it over once but just couldn’t move the ball effectively at all. Diocemy Saint Juste ran the ball 28 times for 122 yards but he didn’t get much help. Dru Brown only completed 16 passes for 128 yards and the rest of the running game was silent.
Meanwhile, Hawaii’s defense couldn’t get many stops to set the offense up with field position. Utah State hung 38 points on the board, 35 of them in the first three quarters.
In fact, Hawaii has scored just 51 points in its last four games, all losses. Before that, Hawaii was scoring nearly 30 points per game. The drought has coincided with the injury to top wide receiver John Ursua. Ursua had 667 yards receiving in six games before he went down. The sophomore had also scored five touchdowns. He will remain sidelined this week for the Rainbow Warriors.

Both offenses have been struggling lately without two of their most important players. If you had looked at this game on the schedule a few months ago, you would have though the total might be in the 60s or 70s but now it’s down in the mid-40s and it feels right. Of the two, BYU is more equipped to win a low-scoring game so I’m taking the Cougars on the road.
