Steal a win in Boise

BYU football has yet to gain a victory on the “smurf turf” of Boise State. The past few seasons, the Cougars were doing a pretty good job of staying even with swapping victories with the Broncos.  That was until last year, when they gave one up to the perennial “Group of Five” powerhouse in Provo.

It is important to get one back in Albertson’s Stadium this time around.  Although stout once again this year, in the last few games the Broncos have shown some vulnerabilities.  If the Cougars can exploit some of these, there’s a chance they just may leave town with a win.

The Holy War

The fact that this one is the season finale assures that no matter what happens from now until then, BYU football has something that matters in front of them.  In fact, no one can convince me that anything that the Cougars can accomplish is more important for the program than beating the Utes.

Now some may scoff at the thought of pulling off the upset against what seems to be stellar group.  Of course, the notion of walking out of Madison, Wisconsin was ridiculous as well.  Anything is possible.

Despite what anybody says, the Cougars are capable of beating Utah.  BYU football has the ability to keep up with the Utes.  If players stay healthy, coaches can conjure up the right game-plan,  and then players are able to execute it, then they’ll be in the mix.
