Current Records: Boise State 2-3; BYU 5-0
What to Know
The BYU Cougars will be playing at home against the Boise State Broncos at 3:30 p.m. ET next Saturday. The Cougars are out to keep their three-game home win streak alive.
BYU beat the Utah State Aggies 34-20 on Friday. RB Tyler Allgeier went supernova for BYU as he rushed for three TDs and 218 yards on 22 carries. One of the most memorable plays of the contest was Allgeier’s 59-yard touchdown rush in the second quarter. Allgeier’s sharp performance set his single-game rushing touchdown high for the season.
Meanwhile, Boise State came up short against the Nevada Wolf Pack on Saturday, falling 41-31. The losing side was boosted by WR Stefan Cobbs, who caught ten passes for two TDs and 132 yards. That receiving effort made it the first game that Cobbs has posted more than 100 yards receiving.
The Boise State defensive unit accumulated five sacks for a loss of 28 yards. Leading the way was DE Isaiah Bagnah and his three sacks. Bagnah now has five sacks through five games.
BYU is now a perfect 5-0 while Boise State sits at 2-3. Two defensive numbers to keep in mind before kickoff: The Cougars are 180th worst in the nation in passing yards allowed per game, with 251.4 on average. The Broncos have experienced some struggles of their own as they are stumbling into the game with the 190th most rushing yards allowed per game in the nation, having given up 194 on average. It’s possible one of these Achilles’ heels will wind up tripping the losing team up.
