And the nice and easy November continues for BYU.
The Cougars got through their nightmare of a first eight games – at least in terms of how the schedule looked on the preseason schedule – and now they’re a win away from going bowling.
They’re a bit banged up, with QB Taysom Hill getting past a shoulder injury suffered against Cincinnati, but he’s fine, the team should be okay, and now it’s time to enjoy the light and breezy finishing kick. The program earned it.
The passing game might not be great, the secondary might be a problem, and this might not be an explosive team, but the offense makes good on just about every scoring chance, while the running game is great at settling things down.
Southern Utah has a terrific offense to overcome a mediocre defense, with good balance and enough pop to make this interesting.
The Thunderbirds don’t screw up. They own the turnover margin, they’re great at owning field position, and they’re solid against the run.
BYU won’t make this a blowout. Hill will try to get the passing attack going to go after the Achilles’ heel Thunderbird secondary, and it’ll work to some extent. Even so, it’ll take a full four quarters to finally put this away.

*To be honest, it looks like yet another brutally dull sci-fi thing, but it’s 100%, so you’re supposed to see it or else.
