Mike Leach makes his Washington State coaching debut Thursday night. Leach’s Cougars travel to Provo, Utah to face BYU, which happens to be Leach’s alma mater.Here’s Leach talking about the upcoming game. (Thanks KREM-TV, Spokane, WA)
Leach’s Washington State team will toss the football around the field. Other than that Wazzou doesn’t have a whole lot. There are concerns about the Cougar offensive line and the defense is just not up to par.BYU is a veteran team and head coach Bronco Mendenhall likes how physical his team is. While BYU’s secondary will be tested by Wazzou’s receivers their trio of linebackers, Kyle Van Noy, Brandon Ogletree and Uona Kaveinga are pretty darn good. Van Noy is the star of the group.
Bottom line Wazzou will do some good things but BYU will wear down the Washington State defense and should win this game rather easy.
OSG predicted score: BYU 48, Wazzou 10
