The BYU Cougars and Utah State Aggies face off on Friday in a Week 5 college football showdown at Maverick Stadium. In 2019 BYU had no issues beating Utah State 42-14. 

BYU has been quite impressive to start this season winning each of their first four games. BYU has wins over Arizona, Utah, Arizona State, and South Florida. BYU let South Florida into the game late, but they still held them off winning 35-27. BYU is averaging 28 points while the defense is giving up 19.2 points. Under center for BYU is Baylor Romney and on the season he has thrown for 561 yards, seven touchdowns, and two interceptions. Tyler Allgeier is the best player on the ground averaging 351 yards and four touchdowns. In this game, BYU is going to need the offense to be strong.

On the other side of this matchup is the Utah State Aggies who won their first three games of the season before losing their last game against Boise State. The offense really struggled in the last game scoring only three points and that led to the 24 point loss. Utah State is averaging 31.5 points while their defense is giving up 29.7 points per game. Logan Bonner has been under center for Utah State and on the season he has thrown for 959 yards, seven touchdowns, and five interceptions. The offense did struggle in the last game and scoring only 10 or 13 points isn’t going to be enough to keep this game close.

BYU is 11-4 against the spread in their last 15 games on fieldturf. Utah State is 9-3 against the spread in their last 12 non-conference games. The road team is 7-2 against the spread in the last nine meetings between the two teams. The underdog is 9-2 against the spread in the last 11 meetings. 

This has been a series that the underdog has found success in, but I don’t see that happening in this game. Utah State’s offense really struggled against Boise State, and it’s not going to get any better in this game. Back BYU to cover the spread.
