Byu - 29                                           San Diego St - 21

Cougars -2.5                                 over 49

I'll lose my money on Bronco's Cougars. If they play this one seriously they should get it done. No dis to the Aztecs they had a great season, but the more talented team on the field goes to the Mormons. Power ranking - slight edge to BYU. Schedule - slight edge BYU. Coaching - BYU. Crystal Ball shows the Aztecs commiting costly turnovers. Special team edge - BYU. a Poinsettia Party in Provo  I'll drink to anything.

BYU - Over

This line looks about right, Two teams played similar schedules strength wise. Byu slight edge hanging with NDame. Byu shows up for bowl games.   BYU wins in a close one. BYU and OV for the large!!!!

SD State has beaten BYU once ... once in the past 12 years. Value is on BYU -3.

Aztecs for me, I'll take the home team that can run the football versus a team with QB questions and doesnt paly well on the road.

Come again, SDS ranks 106th in passing!  

BYU not as good on offense as the Aztecs but much better on defense! 

Aztecs very good running team, BYU #2 in the country against the run.

BYU -2.5

The mormons will prevail much like Utah State did in there bowl matchup. They will show up for this bowl game. Most college kids look forward to the travel for bowl games so I dont see much motivation for San Diego St playing at home versus a team that will not make very many mistakes and plays solid D.

I am going to have to lean on BYU here. They may have some offensive struggles, but they show up to play when it counts. San Diego State is a weaker passing team, and will have a hard time running the ball against the BYU defense.

Gotta take San Diego St. A very underated team playing a bowl game at home. I'm expecting them to cover with +3.5 if they don't win outright. Any decent team BYU played this year they either lost or won by less than 3. Don't forget SDst is the team that upset Boise out of nowhere. Without that loss Boise would be in a BCS bowl instead of NIU.

still undecided on this but must comment on some other posts..."DR DOG" BYU didnt play with Notre Dame....ND laid an egg like they did 3-4 times this year..BYU got way up for that game & ND didnt show up at all & didnt cover as predicted by every sharp known to man. same thing vs PITT, ND was very over-valued. BYU has a solid D & unimpressive offense. i'm having a tough time with this game but slightly leaning toward SDST.  with regards to strength of schedule for any bowl game?! toss those stats/matchups out the window. even without a major coaching change during the weeks leading up to bowl games teams are very different from the last week of regular season. a good example so far this year was Nevada covering vs AZ. like i said...i'm undecided on this game & will read up & look deeper & look beyond regular season points per game & strength of schedule.   "SHARK EPREZA" the under isnt a lock & i dont think anyone who bets the over is a "moron" like u posted. u do know the lines that are posted usually try to get action on both sides...so the over/under number released is targeting action on both sides...meaning they refine the number so people have to decide one way or the other...its not a number where smart people can say "omg its too high" the under is the bet...the numbers are almost always the perfect medium to force us into a decision. certain times/situations the number released is way out of whack because ya have a team like ND that the public will jump on no matter what the line is because they are one of americas sweathearts & knowing that the oddsmakers release a line on ND on monday morning that is waaaay to high. so basically if u didnt take pitt or byu vs ND but instead took ND u are some of the people that the oddsmakers bank on in those situations

i'm not saying ignore previous match ups etc...but ya must take those with a grain of salt to an extent. the previous games that i look at seriously is the opponents with common strengths that the upcoming team has...such as a physical run game vs soid D lines, or solid defensive efforts vs good offenses. what is BYUs strength? Defense obviously & on the other side of the ball they depend on the running game. SDST has a solid D who got better as the season went on & a solid run game...both teams struggle to get consistant QB play.  As most of us know & any scumbag lawyer would tell ya, u can find stats to back up any arguement or stats to argue someone elses lean. this is a tough game & if i had to make a pick right now i'd take the under.

GL fellas

Decent Ds, solid running games. Barring turnovers in own territories this game should go under, but with a lot of time between games, turnovers are very possible.  I'm gonna take under, I think

BOL on your plays, all

BYU -3.5. I think the match up favors BYU for the following reasons. SDST has a powerful offense built around the running game which was very successful in their mediocre conference. BYU has one of the best run defenses in the country and I expect they will stop SDST. The BYU offense has been subpar in part because of injuries so the time off between games will benefit them alot. I see some people betting the under as well which isn't a bad idea.
