What’s Going To Happen
Has BYU’s offense finally found something? Did it start to work way too late?
It’s all about closing out the season strong for both teams, and for BYU, going to Hawaii next week will have to do for a bowl-like game. And if it can win these last two games, 5-7 – as mediocre as that might seem – doesn’t look quite as miserable after a 1-7 start.
UMass has been a fun 3-7 team. It’s always competitive, and the offense is able to bomb away and put up points in bunches. Can it get the O rolling on the road and force BYU to get out of its comfort zone and start throwing?
The emergence of Squally Canada – who ran for 213 yards in the win over UNLV – has to start taking control of the time a little better, and the offense has to start moving the ball more consistently.
UMass will bomb away against the mediocre Cougar secondary, but the run defense that’s giving up over 200 yards per game will get hit hard on the road.
