    I think that the title to the article should read:

    BYU Football - Cougars Look To Slow Down BYU Offense

    Isn't that what they've been doing all season?

    GT will easily exploit the supposedly strong BYU defense.
    Our Heeroh, Riley Nelson will fumble three times, throw four INT's and be sacked no less that eight times. His passing numbers will be bloated because of the high number of shovel "passes" that he will "throw" because of his total lack of arm strength and accuracy. The RB's will have all the receiving yards as a result.
    After the game, Doman will spew his excuses, and Bronco will be explaining--to anyone who might be listening anymore--that the game was a teaching moment and the BYU players will take a lot from the experience and blah, blah, blah, blah.....
    In the end, GT 45 BYU 9

    If we have to depend solely on the defense to keep us in the game, we lose. We need an offensive explosion. Their defense isn't that great. If we tank this one, I think we have to point the finger at the offensive scheme and QB play.

    I think BYU will win this one. I'm pulling for them.

    If they have such a potent offense, why are they 3-4? Weak defense?
    Actually I do trust Bronco that he will adequately defend an option offense. It's their passing game that will potentially hurt us. However I don't hold much faith that we'll be able to move the ball much against a subpar defense.

    If you are in Utah the game is also on Root Sports TV. Outside of Utah it is on ESPN3 if you have it.

    Yeah, the real issue here is speed. GT has it, BYU does not. BYU Defense will not be able to contain the corners past the first quarter. Sorry, but I think I see another loss coming. That's OK, your record is still better than Utah's.

    The headline says it all: we've obviously given up on our offense being able to put points on the board - now we're hoping our defense can hold the other side down while we score 12 points. We have all debated this for weeks, it comes down to trying a different QB, different plays, changing coaching assignments, etc. Going at it with the same Offensive scheme will not work.
