Point Spread Selection : This will be only the 2nd game Utah State has hosted unlike BYU who has played one game on the road. That lone road trip resulted in a loss albeit a narrow one to the lowly Cavaliers. The Aggies only loss this season was a tight 3-point road loss to the Trojans. Normally we’d consider that a quality game, but after USC’s meltdown in the desert it doesn’t impress us. like wise for their latest a 40-12 pasting of San Jose State. The Spartans managed 437 total yards, but finished the game -4 in turnovers. BYU’s early season resume is nothing to brag about but the one thing they have done is out-yarded every opponent. if the Cougars can limit their turnovers (-4 LW vs. Mid Tenn) they can easily stay with in the number and possibly get the straight up win. Take the BYU Cougars +6 at 5Dimes and get reduced juice on every play.
