The BYU Cougars are going to get the respect at home because they’re the ranked team, and they’ve looked great on both ends of the floor up to this point. However, the Utah State Aggies are a great team in their own right and actually have the offensive horses to give BYU some trouble. Utah State’s two losses have also come by a combined five points. This is one of the better games on Wednesday’s card, and Utah State can hang. Give me the points.
