Brigham Young Cougars quarterback Ammon Olsen (15) hands off to Brigham Young Cougars running back Adam Hine (28) during a game at LaVell Edwards Stadium on Saturday, November 16, 2013.

The Cougars suffered a rough loss to Notre Dame last weekend, but have the opportunity to end the regular season on a positive note when they play Nevada on Saturday.

A key for BYU, and something the offense has notably struggled with, will be scoring touchdowns instead of settling for field goals. Also, BYU defense will have to get to the versatile Nevada quarterback Cody Fajardo early to disrupt his pass and run game.

Here are important factors of the game at a glance.
