Baylor vs BYU Prediction & Pick

Baylor dominated in the trenches in last season’s 38-24 win over the BYU in Waco. The Bears rushed for 303 yards to just 67 for the Cougars. BYU quarterback Jaren Hall is a special talent for the Cougars, and he passed for 342 yards in defeat with a TD and no interceptions. Wide receivers Puka Nacua and Gunner Romney combined for 8 receptions for 249 yards vs Baylor last year, and follow their status to play this week. Romney is likely making his season debut, and Nacua should be back in the lineup after suffering an apparent ankle injury in the first half last week.

Final Score Prediction: BYU: 34 | Baylor 24

Baylor vs BYU Best Bet

Baylor QB Blake Shapen showed off his live arm and accuracy last week completing 17 of 20 passes for 214 yards in a 69-10 win over FCS Albany last week. But Cougars QB Jaren Hall is better, he led BYU to a 50-21 road win at South Florida playing without WR Romney. Check WR status of Romney and Nacua, but look out if they play. BYU has a huge experience edge in this match-up as well, providing BYU the advantages in their home opener.

Bet: BYU -3.5 and over 53.5
