What’s Going To Happen

Okay, BYU. Enough is enough.

In the midst of a shockingly disastrous season, BYU hasn’t been able to do anything right in blowout loss after blowout loss. However, there was always a light at the end of the tunnel. The tough part of the schedule was the first half. And now comes the pivot to an easier second half.


The Cougars can’t generate any consistent offense, and the defense – as talented as it is in certain areas – can’t pick up the slack. East Carolina needs to be the remedy for that.

The Pirates are having an equally awful season, but at least they have a win – UConn – over an FBS team.

ECU’s offense has fizzled too often, but the biggest problem is a defense that’s not even close, allowing more than 60 points three times and ranking dead last in the nation in scoring D.

Neither offensive attack is working, but BYU can play a little bit of defense, and East Carolina can’t.

The beleaguered BYU offensive line will catch a break against a Pirate defensive front that can’t get behind the line, but cant the nation’s second-worst offense take advantage of finally playing a bad team?

Sort of.

East Carolina needs to score early to put the pressure on BYU to take a few chances in comeback mode, and then the problems will start.

BYU will still struggle and sputter, but it’ll win the field position battle, create two key takeaways, and will come away with an ugly victory – but Cougar fans won’t care how it happened.

Finally, the Cougars will have a positive moment.
