My Prediction: BYU tries to rebound from a horrible home loss to rival Utah. The Cougars were beat 54-10. Utah racked up 242 yards on the ground. Central Florida is a very good running team, ranked 23rd in the nation. The Knights also boast a very good defense allowing only 6.7 points a game so far while BYU is only averaging 13.3 points a game. This should be a low scoring close contest so I’ll take the points.
Central Florida +3
