Western Kentucky Hilltoppers vs. Brigham Young Cougars, Another possible easy win for BYU at home after winning last week against Texas. For now, the Cougars remain 11th in the AP Poll, but there are still several weeks into the season. The Hilltoppers don’t have much to offer this year. The conference is being dominated by Marshall.
Wastern Kentucky Hilltoppers: Lost hopes.
The Hilltoppers won last week against Chattanooga 13-10. It was a home game with incredible defensive power, but in the end it was positive for the home team. Before that victory the Hilltoppers lost to UAB and Marshall. The other win of the season was against Middle Tennessee 20-17.
The team is scoring an average of 17.7 points per game, 168.8 yards with 17 completed passes. From the offense the Hilltoppers have averaged 31.3 rushing attempts with 109.7 yards and 0.5 touchdowns. Tinsley is the leader in receptions with 21 receptions, 210 yards and 3 touchdowns this season. The defense allows up to 27.8 points per game.
Tyrrell Pigrome is in his final year as a college player. The last four years Pigrome was QB for Maryland. So far this has been his best year with 644 yards, 7 touchdowns without interceptions, 65 completed passes with 57.5% effectiveness. 125.8 rate overall. 58 staff rushes for 215 yards with no touchdowns.
Brigham Young Cougars: Hard at home.
The Cougars know that victory tonight could be easier than normal. Last week the team smashed Texas State 52-14. That game was one of our predictions with BYU -28.5. Again we pick the last game of the night with BYU as the favorite. The reason is that BYU at home is a scoring machine against almost any team.
The home average is 48.3 points per game. Only three games at home this season. Only in a home win against UTSA 27-20 did the Cougars have offensive problems. In that game they won only by 7 points. The rushing attack is highly effective with 197.7 yards and 3.2 touchdowns per game. The defense allows up to 14 points per game.
Zach Wilson will have another magical opportunity for him tonight. Last week against Texas Wilson he had 225.2 rate overall, being the best rating this season for him. Plus four touchdowns without interceptions. Two games with four consecutive touchdowns, against Texas and Houston on the road.
