The Weber State Wildcats haven't had the toughest schedule in the world and I question if they have the offensive horses needed to survive this game. The BYU Cougars are on a roll, which includes a win over San Diego State, and they've covered 21 of their last 31 games. BYU is just one of those teams you blindly back until the hot streak cools off. I'm not trying to step in front of BYU in its current form.
