If the game were played at Provo, I would give BYU a 10 points win. But at Houston, I’m just hopping to get out of there with a win.
Houston has at QB, Tune that has a very good arm and the Houston coach is an Mike Leach protégée, need I say more.
Their run game is suspect, Houston has 3 very small, bowling ball like running backs…and a first rounder receiver by the name of Stevenson. #5, keep your eye on him.
Houston had 319 yds and 2 TDs in the air. BYU has not impressed me in the back field sp expect some score, Tune is more then capable with his arm, in the same breath, with any kind of pressure, Tune also throws copious interceptions, he also gets nervous feet and will take off running. I doubt that Tuiaki will have the guts to really mix it up so expect Houston to score points on long drives. I pains me to say this but I saw a lot of the old BYU defense in the UTSA game and Houston will exploit our 3 man rush.
BYU has me worried after Saturday. We did not respond under pressure and certainly looked beatable and the sad thing is UTSA is not a great football team. There is a lot of truth to “Playing down to your competition” and " An ugly win is still a win" so I guess I’ll be happy.
Expect a slug fest with a lot of points scored.
