Fight Hunger Bowl gameday glance: BYU vs. Washington, Dec. 27, 7:30 p.m.

Published: Thursday, Dec. 26 2013 5:43 p.m. MST

BYU is 6-2 in bowl games under coach Bronco Mendenhall and will look to keep that impressive streak going as they take on a very good Washington team.

As good as the Huskies are, they could be vulnerable Friday night as head coach Steve Sarkisian left the program to take over the head coaching position at USC. Assistant Marques Tuiasosopo will coach the team during the bowl game. It will be interesting to see how the team responds under Tuiasosopo.

Here's a look at several key factors to the bowl game.

I was impressed that this list had some historical perspective. I was wonder where Paul Howard was going to rank and the Oates brothers who had very long careers and were Pro-Bowl players.

I wonder if one would consider Lee Johnson an offensive or defensive player as a punter but he had a great career for the Bengals.

Good point NEW TO UTAH...

Desire works! Talent is also nice to have. BYU loves Hill and he can't beat national programs with his lack of patients in the pocket...dancing feet syndrome..
