Definite Trap Games
Liberty and Wyoming
Both of these schools are the definition of a trap game and BYU needs to be super careful both of these weeks to avoid an upsetting loss.
Liberty – After travelling to Las Vegas, Tampa and Eugene to play some great games (USF is the opener which makes it great), the last thing BYU is going to want to do is travel to Lynchburg, Virginia to play a team that is sneaky good. In their four years of existence, the flames are 32-17 overall, including a 19-4 overall record at home. Liberty doesn’t play a ton of good teams, but they are just good enough to pull off a big upset.
Also, the past six weeks will have just featured four P5’s who very well may have all been ranked, plus a rivalry game against Utah State. Keeping the energy up to play Liberty is a tough ask, hopefully just not too tough.
Wyoming – When the Cowboys come to Provo, the Cougars are just going to want to end the game and prepare for the next one. With Baylor and Oregon the previous two weeks, and Utah State coming up in only five days, it can be easy to see why this game is a trap game. The Cowboys are losing a ton of production from their 7-6 squad last year, but this could still be a solid six win team again. Similar to Liberty, the Cougars could very well overlook the Cowboys and find themselves in a tough spot, especially because for Wyoming, this is the biggest game of their entire season.
