BYU vs Idaho State Bengals

The BYU Cougars will play host again and welcome the Idaho State Bengals to LaVell Edwards Stadium, where kick-off is scheduled for 3:30 p.m. ET Saturday. The Cougars should still be riding high after a victory, while Idaho State will be looking to get back in the win column.

BYU strolled past the Virginia Cavaliers with points to spare last week, taking the contest 66-49. Yes, you read that final score correctly. And yes, they were playing football. RB Tyler Allgeier was a one-man wrecking crew for BYU, rushing for five TDs and 266 yards on 29 carries.

Meanwhile, the oddsmakers predicted a rough matchup for Idaho State last week, and boy were they were right. They suffered a grim 40-17 defeat to the Weber State Wildcats.

BYU is the favorite in this one, with an expected 36.5-point (!) margin of victory. Those who got lucky with them against the spread last week might want to hold off on placing bets this time since the squad has yet to string together back-to-back wins against the spread.

The Cougars’ win brought them up to 7-2 while the Bengals’ loss pulled them down to 1-7. BYU is 5-1 after wins this year, and Idaho State is 1-5 after losses.
