Sitake indicated in an interview this week that he has not heard of anyone on the team opting out of participation in the bowl game. There is a chance we could get Empey and LaChance back, but unlikely for Pau'u and a definite no on Rex.

I think we'll see what we've many times this year. A game of limited possessions which will put a premium on scoring points on those drives. If BYU can get out to an early lead like they have in multiple games this year, there may not be enough possessions for UAB to win.

I think 4 or 5 drives that end in UAB punts or turnovers will be enough for BYU win.


BYU PER W/L Since 1972: 432-76 (.850)
(8.4x
YDS)+(330xTD)+(100xCOM)-(200xINT)
