There is no team that has created more excitement this season than BYU.
Now they bring that energy to the Big House to take on Jim Harbaugh and the Wolverines.
So far this season the 12:00PM games have been pretty bland. Hopefully this jumps it up a notch.
After back to back come from behind wins to start the season the Cougars fell to UCLA last week by a point. It has truly been a roller coaster.
One that has forced them to turn to backup Tanner Mangum at quarterback. He is neither the running threat of Taysom Hill, nor as experienced, but he is certainly not shy about stepping up in big moments.
BYU teams are always a bit more mature and experienced and this seems to pay off for them when they get into big games. This is another one.
This is a tough spot for the Cougars. Michigan is probably the worst of the teams they have played but on the road in the Eastern Time Zone this is going to be a tough game to get up for.
The Cougars have likely been playing a little over their head and this might be a logical spot for them to crash a little.
Solid wins the last couple of weeks against Oregon State and UNLV do not change the fact that Michigan still has a lot of work to do to get back to being Michigan. This is their last nonconference game and it is a chance to build some more confidence heading into B10 play.
Coach Jim Harbaugh preaches toughness and physicality and so far it has shown up on the defensive side of the ball where they have posted good numbers.
On offense transfer QB Jake Rudock has proven to be a little too mistake prone with an interception in all three games so far.
This program needs to generate more offense. They are below 200ypg on the ground and through the air. I think the challenge is that Harbaugh wants to run it down people’s throats but they just aren’t there yet talent wise.
Beating a ranked team at home would be a huge win but BYU has proven they are not intimidated. 100,000+ fans at the Big House are unlikely to spook them for the Wolverines are going to have to outwork them.

BYU has covered in three straight games. Can they continue that run or does the magic die in the Big House.

I see this as a FG game so as long as you are getting more than that take the underdog on the road. Gotta ride the streak.
