The BYU Cougars and Washington State Cougars face off on Saturday in a non-conference college football showdown at Martin Stadium.

The BYU Cougars come into this game with a 5-2 record overall but they have lost two games in a row. Two games ago against Boise State they lost 26-17 and in the last game against Baylor they lost 38-24. BYU is averaging 26.7 points while the defense is giving up 23 points per game. In the last game. Under center for BYU is Jaren Hall who has thrown for 1,205 yards, nine touchdowns, and three interceptions. Tyler Allgeier has been the top running back rushing 136 times for 675 yards and nine touchdowns. In this game the defense needs to step up or they will lose their third game in a row.

On the other side of this matchup is the Washington State Cougars who sit with a 4-3 record overall but they have won three games in a row. In the last game against Stanford, Washington State held on for a victory against Stanford. Jayden de Laura had a big game completing 17 of his 30 passes for 289 yards and three touchdowns. The Cougars on the season has thrown for 25.7 points while the defense is giving up 25.7 points per game. de Laura on the season has thrown for 1,476 yards, 15 touchdowns, and five interceptions. Washington State has been involved in close games, and they need to finish this game strong. Washington State did lose their head coach this week so it will be interesting to see how the team responds to him.

BYU is 2-5-1 against the spread in their last eight games overall. Washington State is 4-0 against the spread in their last four games overall. The under is 13-3 in BYU’s last 16 games against the Pac-12. The under is 4-1 in Washington State’s last five games overall. 

I expect this is going to be a close battle, and Washington State is going to find a way to keep this within a field goal. Look for Washington State’s offense to get another big game from de Laura and that will be enough for the Cougars to cover the spread.
