Brigham Young Cougars

After facing three ranked teams and a bye, things are looking good for the Cougars. They are coming off two big wins against Tennessee and USC. Coming off a loss to Toledo Brigham Young will be looking to bounce back with a big win. This all depends on how they will adjust without Zach Wilson. The Cougars quarterback is sidelined until December and will look to Jarren Hall to fill up the slack. Brigham Young also needs to pad its production. They can do so with a good ground game anchored on Emmanuel Esukpa. Defensively, they also need to step up. This is an area that needs to be addressed, they are allowing an average of 31.2 points to opposing teams.
