Brigham Young Cougars linebacker Kyle Van Noy (3) sacks Texas Longhorns quarterback Case McCoy (6) in Provo Saturday, Sept. 7, 2013. BYU won 40-21.

After a tough 20-13 loss to Utah last week, BYU takes the field again on Friday to take on Middle Tennessee State at home.

The offense should have a much easier time against the Blue Raider defense, which should allow quarterback Taysom Hill to improve his dismal 35.1 passing percentage. The defense will also need to step up against running back Reggie Whatley and the Middle Tennessee offense that scored 42 points last week.
