The BYU Cougars will host the Utah State Aggies at the LaVell Edwards Stadium on Thursday Night. These teams faced each other last season in Utah and the Cougars beat the Aggies 34-20 covering the spread as -8 pts favorites.
Utah State Aggies
The Aggies get here with a 1-3 record after losing against the UNLV Rebels 24-34. Bonner was 20 of 31 for 236 yards passing and three touchdowns. Terrell Vaughn had two touchdown catches for the Aggies and Justin McGriff had a one plus 103 yards.
The offense has been a problem as they're averaging only 15.5 points per game and they have also been awful in defense as they are allowing over 200 yards by air and ground.
The Cougars are 3-0 so far this season after beating the Wyoming Cowboys 38-24 last Saturday. Jaren Hall became the 20th BYU quarterback to pass for 4,000 yards while completing 81.3% of his attempts and finishing with a career-high 211.0 pass efficiency rating. He also achieved it without any serious blunders. Hall was sacked once, bringing his streak of 115 consecutive throws without an interception to an end. Keanu Hill finished with a career-high 160 yards and two touchdowns on five catches to lead the Cougars.
Defensively, the team has has been decent allowing an average of only 26.5 points per game and they already faced 2 ranked teams like Baylor and Oregon.
The total has gone UNDER in 5 of Utah State's last 5 games.
Utah State are 9-4 SU in their last 13 games.
Utah State are 2-4 ATS in their last 6 games against Brigham Young.
Utah State are 4-16 SU in their last 20 games against Brigham Young.
Brigham Young are 8-2 SU in their last 10 games.
The total has gone OVER in 5 of Brigham Young's last 7 games against Utah State.
Brigham Young are 16-1 SU in their last 17 games at home.
The BYU Cougars will be too much for the Aggies on this game. Jaren Hall is #20 in the nation with 1,164 yards so far and he has so many weapons to make this game ugly for Utah State. The Aggies defense has allowed an average of 36 points per game so I can see the Cougars scoring over 40 points at home while the Aggies will barely score 2 touchdowns. The Cougars win and cover at home.
PICK: BYU Cougars -23.5 (-110)
