The Utah State Aggies take on the 20th ranked Brigham Young Cougars tonight (Friday October 2nd 2009), in what should be a one sided affair. BYU (3-1) had early hopes of a BCS bowl appearance after a win over then 3rd ranked Oklahoma in the first week of the season. BYU’s BCS hopes were shattered when they lost to Florida State 54-28 in the third week of games. Last week BYU went back to their winning ways beating Colorado State 42-23. The Utah State Aggies (1-2) have had a rough season, with their first win last week over Southern Utah. Game time for this Utah State vs BYU game is set for 9:00 PM EST.

Utah State vs BYU Prediction:
Spread – Big number here with BYU favored by 24 points. Going against the trends I am betting on BYU to cover this 24 point spread. QB Max Hall has looked great so far this year and should be able to pick apart this Utah State defense. They also have two threats at the running back position with Harvey Unga and Bryan Kariya, who share the touches. BYU should be able to put up some big numbers at home against this Utah State team. Bet on BYU to cover.
Over/Under – Bet the UNDER at -110 in this Utah State vs BYU match up. BYU should be able to put up some big numbers, but I don’t see the total going over 64 points. Utah State shouldn’t be scoring much, even against this BYU defense who averages 23 points against. Bet the Under.
