BYU opens as a 6-point favorite and the total is set at 135. I like Pacific to battle in this game, and I like getting the six points with the home team here. Pacific took BYU to overtime last time out, and I think this game will be close yet again. I will take the six with the Tigers in what should be an interesting game.
