Football season is back and that is exactly what the Conductor needs. Saratoga has dragged him through the streets the past month, but now he can diversify his portfolio and start firing away on some good ol’ fashion American Football. The Florida vs Miami game last week may have been the grossest thing the Conductor has ever watched, but it’s nice that football is back.
BYU +6.5 vs Utah
Tonight’s slate has few good match-ups and the Conductor is taking the train to Utah for the Holy War.
This is going to be a hell of a game. Utah is loaded entering the season with most of a 9-5 team back and a stellar defense. They’ve been getting hyped up all off season with all the passengers in the media saying how good they’re going to be. They are a good team yes, but this is week one and they are playing their bitter rival.
They Conductor liked what he saw out of BYU QB Zach Wilson to end last season and the Cougars are returning most of their production from last year as well. BYU is always well coached on both sides of the ball and the Conductor loves taking the Mormon’s as underdogs. This is a rivalry game and these two teams despise each other.
*Key to the Game – The Mormon factor: What won’t be talked about in the media is the Mormon factor. 99% of the kids on Utah were out drinking stew all summer, that’s what college kids do. The Mormons on the other hand don’t drink stew. Should that be an NCAA violation? Probably, but the Conductor knows from experience how much damage stew can do to the body. In a tight game, even the slightest advantage can put a team over the edge, and the Cougars have it in this one.
