BYU vs. Weber State Predictions
Here are the Sports Bro's predictions for tomorrow's game:
While Big Bro wants to go conservative on this pick, I will go more realistic. While I agree that Bronco and gang will not lay the smack down like Oklahoma State did on Savanna State (84-0), I do expect BYU to win and win big. BYU simply has too much talent to stay out of the endzone. I expect Riley to play one or two series in the third quarter (even though he shouldn't) and Taysom Hill to get some quality reps. The ground game should be much improved, and maybe even surpass the 200 yard mark. Riley throws for 225 and 2 scores in just over a half of work. Apo catches his first TD of the season on a deep ball. Alisa breaks the 100 yard barrier for the first time in his career, while the cougar denfense forces 3 turnovers (2 picks 1 fumble). BYU rolls.
BYU 51, Weber State 10
Although this should be an easy win, look for BYU to play conservatively so as not to tip their hand too much with Utah and Boise State coming up. I expect Doman and Mendenhall to get the running backs involved a lot and rotate the young players in more than normal. This will not only give some needed field time to the youngsters, but allow for player to avoid injuries and heal from existing ones. While I expect BYU to win easily, I don't think it will be as big as some are predicting.
BYU 38, Weber State 10
