LaxmanAfter playing in Rice-Eccles, on the Smurf Turf, and in South
Bend, I seriously doubt BYU will be even the slightest bit intimidated playing
in Spartan Stadium, in fact, it's very likely that BYU will have as many
fans as SJSU, since the Spartans only average around 15,000 in a 30,000-seat
stadium.The only thing intimidating about playing the Spartans is
they have a very good passing offense.
Utah Fan2I didn't know we where talking about Utah and Utah
State. Stay with the program.
LaxmanUtah State was very luck to beat Utah. And that game was in
They were very lucky to beat USU. And it was in Provo. No comparison for this
road game. San Jose State wins.
didn't we barely beat USU? That said, San Jose should beat BYU with ease if
their passing game is running on all cylinders. BYU's defense has never
been good against a strong passing offense. San Jose by 17.
SJSU gave up a staggering 13 sacks against USU. BYU needs to attack their QB
with that kind of aggression. While the Cougs' secondary hasn't been
a liability this year the way it has in the past, the defensive strength is
still the front 7. The inability to pressure Vaz is what tore up the secondary
against OSU. Get the Spartan QB running for his life and the secondary will
TheNun"Since the Cougs have already beaten USU, the extra
motivation of trying to win its second WAC title in a row, will be enough to get
BYU over the hump in this game."Unlike the Utes (currently 0-1
in the WAC), who only won two WAC titles in 38 years, BYU (currently undefeated
in the WAC) is an expert at winning WAC titles (19 in 38 years, including 10 in
a row).Ironically, BYU's and Utah's chances of winning
another conference title in the next few years are about the same.
Time for Ziggy, KVN and Brandon O to rise up and show the NFL scouts. The Nun, Please stay on topic.
Re: TheNunI appreciate that BYU is having a winning season - even
against WAC teams. I have doubts that my Utes could have the same success
against the same teams. Some comments just seem to be based on jealousy rather
byufan,I didn't say the cougars are bad, I merely indicated
it's getting tougher and tougher to win the wac championship. Why so testy?
TheNunWhy do you care? If you think BYU is bad then don't post.
Explain to me how your post was helpful in anyway?
Since the cougs have already beaten usu, the extra motivation of trying to win
its second wac title in a row, will be enough to get byu over the hump in this
game. They know if they can win this tough road game, in a hostile environment,
the momentum gained in san jose should be the extra edge needed to carry them
over for the game next week against another quality opponent, in yet another
hostile environment. Man, it just keeps getting tougher and tougher to win the
I see BYU as a one-point favorite, despite the Spartans' home-field
advantage. After all, the Cougars started the season against Washington
State's "Air Raid" offense and seemed to hold their own.
This San Jose hype is silly. Utah St. smashed the Spartans on the road. BYU
shouldn't have any trouble either.
