Utah State outgained UNLV by a total of 421-320, but turned the ball over six times in the loss. The Utah State offense is averaging 15.5 points per game with 205 passing yards per game and 140.5 rushing yards per game. Logan Bonner has thrown for 753 yards, six touchdowns, and eight interceptions for the Aggies this season. Calvin Tyler Jr. has rushed for 292 yards, while Brian Cobbs has caught 18 passes for 241 yards and one touchdown for Utah State.

The BYU Cougars are 3-1 this season after they defeated Wyoming by a score of 38-24 in Week 4. BYU was able to gain 525 total yards in this game, but did commit 11 penalties for 109 yards in the win. The BYU offense is averaging 33.5 points per game with 296.5 passing yards per game and 161 rushing yards per game. Jaren Hall has thrown for 1,164 yards, nine touchdowns, and one interception for the Cougars this season.

Utah State is 5-1 ATS in their last 6 road games and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The under is 5-0 in Utah State’s last 5 games. BYU is 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games and 1-5-1 ATS in their last 6 games against a team with a losing record. The under is 7-1 in BYU’s last 8 Thursday games. The road team is 8-2 ATS in these two teams last 10 head to head meetings.

Utah State has not played well this season and their defense has allowed at least 34 points in three straight games. BYU bounced back after they loss to Oregon with a win over Wyoming in their last game. BYU’s defense has had some issues as well, giving up 65 points in their last two games. I think we are going to see a good amount of points in this game with both defensive units not playing their best.

The pick in this article is the opinion of the writer, not a PickDawgz site consensus.
