From 2007 to 2011, Cougar defenses gave up an average of 20.78 points per game, according to the article. During that same period of time, the defenses allowed just 15.9 points in games won and 37.9 in games lost. In the 2012 season, the Cougars are allowing just 8.8 points per game overall. In wins, BYU is only allowing 5.5 points and 15.5 in games lost.
As good as BYU's defense is, its offense is struggling and the rest of the season doesn't look good for the offense, according to the article. Through the first six games of the 2012 season, BYU's offense is averaging just 3.4 yards per play against ranked opponents, 5.3 against unranked opponents, 4.2 against teams with winning records and 5.4 against teams with losing records.
If the Cougar offense wants to reach its offensive totals from 2011, it will need to rack up 412 yards each game on offense, according to the article. That task gets even more difficult against teams like Oregon State and Notre Dame.
