BYU got a couple of big performances in the 14-point win over Pacific, and rounded it out with some nice secondary scoring and solid defense. Against comparable competition, the Cougars have been playing great lately.
As for San Francisco, they’ve had some good output here and there but have been pretty spotty over the last seven games or so. I’m going to go with BYU on the cover here.
