BYU Football is looking to beat Utah for the first time since 2009.

If BYU Football hopes to beat Utah this year they are going to have to put together a entire and complete game. On paper, Utah isn’t the toughest opponent that BYU has faced every year. The Cougars have been able to beat Wisconsin, Boise State, UCF, USC, and Texas to name a few great wins, but they have for whatever reason been able to beat the Utes, even in years they struggled.

This year, Utah is once again putting out a really good squad. When you throw on their already talented roster and add on the fact that mentally they are in a much better spot than BYU, it becomes very clear that if the Cougars want any chance to win this game, they are going to have to have a lot of things go right.

Does BYU Football need to have a perfect game? No of course not. Again, Utah isn’t Alabama, and on paper they would not be the best, or even close to the best P5 team that the Cougars have beaten in the last few years. However, if BYU is hoping to end the streak, they will need things to go their way in a few very specific areas, starting with the line of scrimmage.
