Blowouts in store for 2011 Cougars

Ole Miss- A team struggling to find a qb, is a team that is vulnerable, especially early on in the season. BYU showed that last year. Weather looks to be a factor down in the deep south. Look for a few mistakes early, but half time to clear up some of the mishaps.
Texas- Coming off its worse year since Mack Brown has been at the helm (13 years) and still having a qb battle just 2 years removed from the BCS title game. Lots of questions to be answered here.
Utah - This game has revenge game written all over it. Being as it is in Provo, Cougars look to pounce the Utes early on in the season for momentum.
UCF- A dagnerous team that could surprise the cougars. However, I have a hard time seeing the cougars dropping this one at home in front of 65K screaming blue clad cougar fans.
Utah State- Another revenge game, at LES has the looking for a total lopsided Cougar 'W'. Utah State is looking to replace their qb, who gave BYU fits all game last year in the Aggies 31-16 victory.
San Jose St- I am going to go out on a limb here and say BYU could break their single game record for points (83 pts) in this homecoming affair. however, Bronco hasn't been one to run up the score (unlike some people up north) so dont be surprised to see Heaps on the sideline shortly after halftime.
Oregon State- The Beavers lost their best offensive weapon in Jacquizz Rogers to the NFL. Being in Corvallis might make this a tough test, and the Beavers could be looking to gain some pride after their 2009 beat down in the LV bowl. However, BYU in my opinion is just too good to let this one slip.
Idaho State- Blowout
TCU- Aside from the obvious rivalry game, and possibly Texas, this is the most intgriguing game of the year
Idaho- See Idaho State prediction
New Mexico St- If the San Jose St game does not provide enough points for you from the cougar end, get tready for an encore in late November.
Hawaii- This is going to be a fun game to watch. I foresee a high scoring affair with the winner very hard to predict 4 months out. Should be a fun game though.
