NCAA Football Betting Odds:
The Cougars leap into this weekend’s action flashing a 3-1 record that pegs them as the 2nd most successful independent program this season. Right now the Fighting Irish are leading the pack for Independent schools, proudly flashing their 4-0 record. Naturally, a win over No. 11 Washington this weekend might launch BYU up the national rankings and bring them one step closer to matching Notre Dame’s success. However, BYU hasn’t had much luck against Washington as of late. In fact, they’re 3-4 against the Huskies in their last 7 matchups. And while that might not make BYU a clear cut favorite ahead of this weekend’s action, it does bring the above listed NCAA football betting odds into question. After all, these teams look pretty well matched in terms of their per game averages.
Players to Watch: Tanner Mangum (612 passing yards, 3 TD, 2 INT), Squally Canada (322 rushing yards, 5 TD, 5.3 AVG), and Aleva Hifo (129 receiving yards, 0 TD, 12 REC).
The Huskies charge into this matchup sporting their 3-1 record. Their lone loss of the season came in their season opener 21-16 against No. 9 Auburn. It was a hard fought battle and once the Huskies would love to have back. As for this weekend’s action, it’s clear Washington has another hard fought battle in front of them. Right now Washington is putting up 27.3 per game, which is right on par with the 25.0 that BYU delivers. On defense both sides are pretty even as well. The Huskies give up about 12.8, which is slightly better than the 17.0 that the Cougars are currently allotting. Considering how evenly matched both sides are, Washington’s home field advantage might play a hand in determining this outcome.
Players to Watch: Jake Browning (966 passing yards, 7 TD, 4 INT), Myles Gaskin (357 rushing yards, 2 TD, 4.3 AVG), and Aaron Fuller (367 receiving yards, 1 TD, 22 REC).
