Utah State vs BYU Free Pick

October 05, 2012

The college football season is nearing its halfway point and teams are getting ready for rigorous conference schedules. Tonight a battle of Utah takes place when the Utah State Aggies travel to Provo to take on the Brigham Young Cougars.

The Aggies have started their season off very well and are 4-1 SU. The Aggies also have not lost ATS, as they are 4-0-1. The Cougars are 3-2 SU on this season and have the same 3-2 record ATS.  

The defense is what makes both of these teams successful. BYU is ranked fifth in the country in total yards allowed in each game at 226 yards per game and fourth in the country in points allowed at 10 per game. The Aggies are currently ranked eleventh in the country in yards allowed on defense with 280 per game and fourteenth in the country in points allowed per game at 14.

The offenses of both teams have not been awe inspiring, but rather very mediocre. Both teams average similar amounts of yards on offense. The game tonight will not be decided by the play of the offensive units.

Last week the Cougars defeated Hawaii 47-0. Even though they scored a large number of points, it was their defense that was dominating. The defensive unit only allowed a total of 149 by the offense of Hawaii.

The Aggies have one upset to their credit over another in-state rival the Utah Utes. The Aggies beat the Utes in OT 27-20 early in the season. Utah State was close to even a bigger upset against at the time a nationally ranked Wisconsin Badger team. However, the Badgers managed to win the game 16-14.

The line currently has the Cougars of BYU favored by 7, with the point total at 45 ½. The game should be tight all the way, but BYU will make the big plays in the end and will cover the 7 points. The total will pay out to those smart money bettors taking the UNDER.
