Big difference in schedule between the BYU Cougars and the Western Michigan Broncos. BYU played teams like Arizona,Cal,Wisconsin,Washington,Utah State,Boise State and Utah and while 6-6 is not that impressive the Cougars have a very solid defense and a team that missed a bowl berth last season and is determined to make the most of this years Idaho Potato Bowl berth.
Western Michigan was one of the worst teams to bet on this regular season going a money burning 4-8 ATS while the Cougars were a very profitable 8-4 this season. Western Michigan had two tough teams on their schedule Michigan and Syracuse and got blown out in both games.
This game will be played in Boise Idaho on the famous Boise State blue turf which should be interesting to see. I think BYU who travels well Cougars were 4-2 this year away from home. I expect to see this young BYU program fighting very hard in this one.
This game is a ESPN national T.V. game and I expect both teams to be really up for this game the problem really lies in the talent and BYU is arms and legs ahead of the Broncos on both sides of the ball. BYU freshman quarterback Zach Wilson has gotten better which each game.

I expect Zach Wilson to make tremendous strides forward in his progression and really think he will shred the defense of Western Michigan which should open up the running attack of the Cougars. Expect a very cold game at kickoff and hopefully some snow and I think snow would be the only thing that could keep the Cougars from covering. Forget about the high points and bet the BYU Cougars as they win this low scoring game 13-6.
