*3 Star Play on BYU* The BYU Cougars have played extremely well this season. They had consistently been great until last week when they narrowly beat UTSA in what was their first clear letdown game of the season. Everyone is going to have a bad game. All teams overlook some opponents. I don't want to read too much into that.

BYU has a very good quarterback in Zach Wilson, and he has been making plays all year. The BYU offensive line is strong. BYU already has 13 plays of 30 yards or more on the season. They have allowed only 2 sacks this year.

Houston's offensive line is a weakness. They allowed 4 sacks last week alone. Clayton Tune isn't a bad quarterback, but he'll be under pressure a lot and he is turnover prone when under pressure as we saw last week against Tulane.

Tulane couldn't threaten Houston's defense very much last weekend, but BYU is much better on both sides of the ball than Tulane.

Houston is a talented team, but having only one game under your belt and it having been against a questionable team isn't a big help to Houston. BYU has shown us that they are capable of dominating teams who are at least decent. 

The line move down here to a field goal is likely largely due to BYU not looking good last week. I think that just gives us good value on the road team in this contest.

Take BYU.
