These two Utah teams come into the game both needing to come away with wins as they have struggled all season. BYU has lost 3 out of the 4 they have played and have a brutal quarterback situation that needs to be cleaned up fast
Utah State is a home under dog which is always a great bet in college football, but this rivalry might go a little deeper. We should not see very much scoring during this game but this game always get heated in Utah.
When I say that BYU has struggled on defense that might be the biggest understatement of the year. The Cougars have scored less 10 points a game this season, yes you read this correctly 10 POINTS on average a game.
The Cougars have even been shut out two of the games that they have played so they will have to bring some sort of creativity on Friday. The best part of the BYU team is definitely the defense so the under will play big here on the road.
Utah State has a good running game but the BYU front is definitely more talented so it will be interesting to see who wears down first. Being on the road so close to home should not play a factor in how they play.
Utah State Aggies
The Utah State team is very run heavy, but a senior quarterback in Kent Myers who uses his legs adds an extra dynamic that is one of a kind. Myers has had a career best year with 66% passing accuracy while still adding yards on the ground.
We will see if the BYU defense can stop the dual threat quarterback and contain the run all game. But, I believe that the Aggies are up to the task to bring down the Cougars at home.
The passing game will be the most underrated spot, because they will use play action to really hit the open receiver and bring it home. I think the Utah State disrespect comes from years of getting beat down by their big brother in Utah which will have a different ending Friday.

This game will not have a ton of scoring but the Utah State offense should click and score enough to beat the away team. BYU is just not scoring and have not figured it out while showing no signs of changing up the offensive line and the running game.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Utah State +3
Utah State should actually win by a couple of scores, they are going to be more jacked up than you can imagine with in state rivals BYU coming in. I think we are going to see a lot of good things from this Aggie team.
BYU on the other hand has a chance to really fix some things before Boise State comes into town and gives them a test. But, away from home I believe they are going to have a lot of problems.
