The Virginia Cavaliers will take a road trip to LaVell Edwards Stadium to face off against BYU. Virginia has one their last 4 games and after a solid start to the season BYU is 1-2 in their last three.
In their last game, the Cavaliers let a 21 point 4th quarter lead fall to 8. QB, Brennan Armstrong has completed 64.2 percent of his passes for 3,220 yards. This team also has a solid run game led by Wayne Taulapapa and his 258 rushing yards. Defensively this team has struggled a bit which explains the 4th quarter meltdown last game. This team gives 26.4 points per game which ranks 73rd overall.
The Cougars lost two in a row before beating Washington in their last time out. BYU isn’t as talented as Virginia on the offensive end of the ball averaging 26.3 points per game. Their last contest was a tough 2 point win against Washington State thanks to a big defensive stop to prevent a two point conversion.
BYU wins games at the defensive end if the offense can keep it close. At the end of the day, the goal is to put points on the board which Virginia does at an amazing rate. I’ll take the Cavs as dogs here and honestly could see them winning outright.
