BYU’s Play Style
The Cougars are the definition of balanced. Jaren Hall has the tools and receivers to throw for 250 or more yars per game if that is needed. They have the blockers and running backs to rely on the running game if they need to. Defensively, the Cougars are effective sending a blitz or dropping eight into coverage. In other words, BYU can and will be exposed at moments, but they have the skillset and playstyle to adjust and play with anyone on their schedule.
Last year, the Cougars didn’t have the speed or playmakers to keep up with Coastal Carolina’s spread triple option. This year, with faster defensive backs and a very deep linebacker core, they probably won’t be in a position where they are outmatched and unable to adjust at any point this season.
