Charles Kano

BYU continues its season of one-game play-ins against a USU team with a chip on its shoulder. With Utah ducking both teams, this game is for the State Championship. BYU 42, Utah State 13.

Geoff Johnston

BYU is better this year. Utah State is not. This one won’t be close on Jim McMahon Day. BYU 38, Utah State 13.

Adam Mangum

The Aggies’ defense cannot contain BYU’s running game. Taysom and Jamaal run wild. BYU 41, Utah State 14.

Matt Mangum

BYU puts on a performance on ESPN on Friday night. Offense, Defense, and Special Teams each produce a highlight reel worthy play. BYU 35, Utah State 7. 

Brandon Jones

Utah State brings its highly-ranked rush defense into a hostile royal blue Lavell Edwards Stadium. But, not so fast, my friend! The Aggies haven’t exactly faced a murderer’s row of rushing offenses (Tennessee-97th, Idaho State-FCS, Wake Forest-125th, and Arkansas State-73rd). The Cougars win comfortably on the backs of their 26th-ranked rushing offense. BYU 41, Utah State 10.

So, there you have it. Add your predictions to the discussion on Cougarboard.

Here’s hoping we enjoy a historic night on all accounts. Go Cougars!
