The Utah Tech Trailblazers and BYU Cougars meet Saturday in week 12 college football action at LaVell Edwards Stadium. The Utah Tech Trailblazers look to build on their 3-game winning streak. The BYU Cougars look to get a game above a .500 record.

The Utah Tech Trailblazers have lost 4 of their last 5 games. Victor Gabalis is completing 52.4 percent of his passes for 1,620 yards, 14 touchdowns and 9 interceptions. Joey Hobert and Rickie Johnson have combined for 1,846 receiving yards and 20 touchdowns, while Deven Osborne has 18 receptions. The Utah Tech Trailblazers ground game is averaging 118.5 yards per contest, and Quali Conley leads the way with 1,031 yards and 8 touchdowns. Defensively, Utah Tech is allowing 33.4 points and 478.2 yards per game. Will Leota leads the Utah Tech Trailblazers with 75 tackles, Syrus Webster has 5.5 sacks and Darrius Nash has 2 interceptions.

The BYU Cougars have won 3 of their last 5 home games. Jaren Hall is completing 66.1 percent of his passes for 2,622 yards, 24 touchdowns and 5 interceptions. Puka Nacua and Kody Epps have combined for 998 receiving yards and 11 touchdowns, while Keanu Hill has 29 receptions. The BYU Cougars ground game is averaging 150.9 yards per contest, and Christopher Brooks leads the way with 463 yards and 5 touchdowns. Defensively, BYU is allowing 30.8 points and 412.9 yards per game. Ben Bywater leads the BYU Cougars with 75 tackles, John Nelson has 2 sacks and Max Tooley has 3 interceptions.

The BYU Cougars have the ability to run this game out of the water, but they could also allow some cheap scores from the opponent. BYU is not a good defensive team, ranked 99th in total defense, 114th in rushing defense and 106th in scoring defense. I’d be hesitant to lay a big number with the Cougars. Give me the road dog.
