Hard to know who wins this one. Defense should win over BYU's offense. Let's face facts....defense wins these games at this time of the season.
Zags by 10 or less IF the defense and rebounding is in full force.

I agree. Our defense should win. what worries me is that they make as many FT's a game as the Zags shoot. If the Zebras call the game straight, I think we take it...if they succumb to home crowd hysteria, it could be a long night. Of course there's always the possibility of their reaction to the home crowd negatively, and we turn the tables and win in a laugher.

80 points or more. That is the key GU stat. How many games as GU lost in the last few years when they have scored more than 80 pts? I think you have to go way back to an overtime loss at USF 3 or so years ago.

Agree on the D thing, plus I think that the Zags will want to get the wrap it up monkey off their back early in this road trip.

I don't know that stat holds water. BYU has a ton of 90+ point games in which they both won and lost. I don't think we want to get into that frenetic a pace game with these guys.

I see the Vegas betting line has BYU by 1, we need to have some folks loose some coin.

Sounds about right. I know that if I had to bet real money, I would want a few more pts than that. (3?)
