PROVO, Utah -- This BYU team is starting to look eerily like the BYU team from a year ago.
The one from the second half of the season, not the first.
The Cougars have been able to move the ball on offense, but they needed to be perfect on that side of the ball to give themselves a chance as the game wound down because the defense has been so poor. Quarterback Max Hall’s pick-six on the Cougars' first drive of the half really put BYU in a hole. The Cougars followed that up with the first punt of the game on their second possession.
BYU has got to stop the Florida State offense to give the team a chance to win. If it doesn’t, Florida State could make this game uglier than it already is.
