This will be a close game, and making the most of each offensive possession will
be the deciding factor in whether or not BYU wins it. I think they will,
24-13.Chris B must be slipping. He is more excited about BYU
articles than any of us. I can't believe 17 minutes have passed without his
inane babble. Prediction: He will claim a BYU loss due to "lack of
speed", and then his excuse tomorrow after BYU wins will be "Ole Miss
Against a decent Ol' Miss team I'll be happy with a 24-20 win. I'm
just stoked that the season has begun!GO COUGS!
Any SEC team is good - better athletes , bigger and faster. Add to this the
humidity and the big fan base and you have a potential blow out. BYU always
starts slow so I suspect we will see something like 5 turnovers for the Y and a
half time score of 28 - 3 for Ole Miss. BYU will wake up in the second half and
the game will end 35 - 17 for ole Miss. Too much speed, too many athletes and
too much humidity.
BYU always starts slow plus they are playing in killer humidity plus they are
playing an SEC team that is loaded with future NFL talent. 35-17 for Ole Miss.
If the game were in Provo at 5000 feet then I would say 28-27 for BYU.
28-14 BYU comes out of there, brand new quarterback, and a really bad defense on
"Its always hard to determine what will happen during the first game of any
season."Ole Miss is familiar with that. They lost to FCS team
Jacksonville State 49-48 in 2OT last year.
@patriotSo if BYU wins are you going to come on here and give them
credit for beating "an SEC team that is loaded with future NFL talent"
on the road in "killer humidity", or are you going to write it off as
just a win over a bottom tier SEC team? I will be watching you. BYU
27Ole Miss 24
If we don't score more than 30, that probably means we're either turning it over
or Ole Miss has the ball for very long periods. If we score 21 or 24 points,
then I'm a bit worried. I think we need to score 35 or so to win.
BYU 49Mississippi 7Mark it down.
Best line from the articleThe rotating options look strong, with
junior college transfer Hebron Fangupo, 6-1, 331, leading the way.Love it!!! Hilarious. That junior college that Fangupo transferred from
probably isn't going to postseason success anyway, so it is a good step up for
Hebron. (Someone from Corona is probably having a fit right now. hehe)
BYU is favored by 3 points. Look for the cougs to air it out and take on that
weak secondary. BYU's defensive line will be tested with the run game from Ole
Miss, but BYU's linebackers should have a solid afternoon.Prediction: BYU 31 Ole Miss 21
Ole Miss is inexperienced all over the defense, no db's, no linebackers and only
have an experienced Oline and RB on offense.Hmm...BYU
should handle this one. BYU 37Ole Miss 10
Season is here! I fear the Humidity more than ole Miss. Humidity is a killer,
literally so the players better be ready for that. If the cougs can stick to
their game plan and avoid losses to the humidity BYU chould be just fine. I
won't predict a blowout, but I do feel that victory is mroe likely than loss.
BYU defense will play solid. Old Miss will score between 10 and 21.BYU
offense will prove to potent. BYU will score between 24 and 35.Mark it
down...unless I am wrong, then just throw it away.BYU football tomorrow!
Did I read that right...their one returning LB is 5'9" 226? And our TEs
are all, what 6'4" 6'6" or something like that? Sounds like a great
time for the resurgance of the TE at BYU.
Even with a deep defense, if the offense can sustain drive and put points up
early, BYU should pull out a win. If BYU has early turnovers or can't sustain
any early drives, could get ugly. I see the Cougs winning by 10. (I am a biased
BYU will win this game - pulling away in the second half -- by two touchdowns or
more. I'd be very surprised if Ole Miss is in the game come the fourth quarter.
Heaps will have 350+ yards. This is a warm up game for Texas next
For those fretting about the humidity, it can indeed be horrible, but the game
time forcasts are for the low 30s - not the 60s and 70s that will happen later
in the night. It could have been bad, but I think we are lucking out on the
Powder River, let 'er buck! Oh, whoops - wrong team. Rip 'em.
Should be a great game.....for the Cougars.
"Oxford" followed by "Mississippi"= Non sequitor.
Ole miss 30. Byu 17. well done ole miss.
BYU has a more balanced attack offensively and Ole Miss returns just 4 starters
from a bad defense a year ago. I think there will be some big opportunities for
mismatches that BYU can take advantage of. Ole Miss may have some success
running the ball but it wont be enough. BYU 34 Ole Miss 21
I still can't see Ole Miss putting up any points on us.
BYU's schedule just received another downgrade.TCU, arguably the
best team on the Cougars schedule was beaten tonight by Baylor, a bonafide BIG
12 bottom dweller.BYU will slaughter Ole Mess..If BYU
can get by Texas...Now that TCU has been exposed, BYU should easily
run the table.The only thing holding the Cougars back from BCS
Stardom might be Strength of Schedule or an occasional upset along the way.
BYU by 14. Minimum.
BYU 34Ole Miss 20Ole Miss will score on 4 of its 10
possessions, 7,3,7,3 with 1 turnovers, 1 missed FG, 3 punts, 1 Turn over on
downsBYU will score on 6 of its 10 possessions 7,7,7,3,3,7 with 1
turnover, 3 puntsBYU pass 60% run 40%Miss pass 35% run 65%
Ok, so Utah bolted the MWC and didn't look all that great!!TCU gets
beat in a "NO" defensive game at Baylor and they're bolting to the Big
East from the MWC.BYU loses tomorrow at Ole Miss and they're going
to claim their INDEPENDENCE!!Good riddance!
I still feel now as I did earlier in the week. If BYU scores early the game will
be ours. If the Cougars start slowly and it's close in the 3rd quarter, it won't
be pretty for the Y.I like the 24 - 21 victory predictions for the
Men in blue! Go Cougars!
