Both BYU football and Cincinnati own identical 4-4 records, but the Cougars and Bearcats have taken different roads to get there.

BYU has won three of its last four contests, while Cincy has lost three of its last four.

Cincinnati lost to USF and UConn in back-to-back weeks before picking up a win against East Carolina. Last week, the Bearcats fell to Temple 34-13.

The Cougars fell to Boise State before the bye week, but defeated Toledo, Michigan State and Mississippi State before that.

BYU is ranked No. 36 in USA Today’s full 128 team ranking. Cincinnati is ranked No. 86, falling 10 spots from last week.

Some claim momentum is a myth from week to week, but if even a piece of it is real, then the Cougars should have the advantage on Saturday.
