Virginia BYU Preview


BYU is favored by 14.5 points over Virginia. BYU of course lost to Virginia last year in their first game of the season. The game was close but Virginia went on to have a terrible year, 2-10.

The Cougies will be looking for some pay back. This game could be closer than people think. Virginia beat top 25 ranked Louisville last week. If the Cougs really do win by two touchdowns, it would help them climb in the polls. They won’t play another team from the “Power 5” conferences until the last game of the season when they go to Cal. They really need to make a splash tomorrow. It’s on regular ESPN which will be nice.

BYU is up to #21 in the AP poll and Taysom is up to #8 in the ESPN Heisman watch list:
