BYU(2-2) has lost 2 straight close ones, falling to Utah on September 15th, 24-21 and to No. 24 Boise State 7-6 just last Thursday. The Boise State game was particularly ugly, filled with penalties and turnovers. In fact, the Broncos only touchdown came off of an interception.

Before their loss to Boise, BYU was averaging 37 ppg in their previous eight.
