We have reached week 12 of the college football season, and most teams will be playing a conference showdown this week.
Not every game is a conference showdown though, and that is the case in this one.
The UMass Minutemen make the trip to LaVell Stadium in Provo to take on the BYU Cougars. Both of these teams have had very disappointing seasons.
Last year when these two teams BYU won 51-9.
The UMass Minutemen had a terrible start to their season, losing their first six games, but they come into this game playing a lot better having won three of the last four games.
The offense really struggled early in the season and that led to the struggles, but they are playing a lot better on that side of the field now, and that has led to a lot more success.
Over the last three games they have scored 32 points and over 400 yards of total offense per game. They are going to need a similar output in this game probably to be able to pull the huge upset and get their fourth win of the season.
The Minutemen are led by Junior quarterback Andrew Ford who has played well this season, and have played really well as of late.
In the last game he was slinging the ball everywhere on the way to 355 yards and four touchdowns.
To win this game they need to get out to an early start and try to get the crowd out of it early. They can’t let BYU let their crowd get behind them, or it could be a long afternoon of football.
On the other side of this match up is the BYU Cougars who have really struggled this year, and not many people really expected that to be the case.
They come into this game with only three wins, but they did win their last game against UNLV, and will look to build off that momentum in this one.
For the Cougars all their struggles have been on the offensive side of the ball. Coming into this game they are only averaging 16.5 points per game.
For the Cougars they are going to need to score better in this game if they want to win and cover. The Minutemen are a team that can score, and the Cougars are probably going to need to try and keep up.
