The East Carolina offense is averaging 33.3 points per game with 309.3 passing yards per game and 163.4 rushing yards per game.

The East Carolina defense is giving up 23.1 points per game and 392.9 yards per game.

The BYU Cougars are 4-4 this season after they lost to Liberty by a score of 41-14 in their last game. BYU allowed Liberty to gain 547 total yards and go 7-12 on third down attempts in the loss. The BYU offense is averaging 30.1 points per game with 266.1 passing yards per game and 138.4 rushing yards per game.

East Carolina is 4-1-1 ATS in their last 6 non-conference games and 1-9 ATS in their last 10 Friday games. The over is 10-2 in East Carolina’s last 12 Friday games. BYU is 5-0 ATS in their last 5 Friday games and 1-6 ATS in their last 7 October games. The over is 6-1 in BYU’s last 7 home games.

BYU did not look good in their last game and got blown out by Liberty. The BYU defense is allowing over 31 points per game and has allowed 93 points in their last two games. East Carolina has won two games in a row and is coming off of a big win against UCF. BYU is dealing with some injury issues and really struggled in their last game. I like East Carolina with the points here.
