The Utes kicked the Conductor right in the teeth to start the 2019 college football season, typical. That game was absolute torcher to watch from a BYU backer’s perspective. It was 9-6 Utah at halftime and BYU had controlled the game. They moved it into the RedZone twice and settled for field goals and Utah’s TD came on a panic pick 6. BYU should have been up 14-3 at half and the Conductor knew he was in trouble when they didn’t take advantage of their opportunities early.
In the 2nd half Utah ran it right down the Cougars’ gullets, but we still had a chance to cover if BYU didn’t hand Utah two TD’s off unforced turnovers. The Conductor likes both teams moving forward, but BYU did him no favors last night.
Wake Forest -4 vs Utah State
The Conductor’s chase game tonight is down in Winston Salem. The Demon Deacons have improved mightily the last few years under head coach Dave Clawson and are getting much better recruits. Utah State is coming in off a great 10-2 season, but their head coach left and most of their returning production on offense is gone. The smaller schools can’t reload like the big boys. Both teams will put up points in this one, but Wake will ware them out late with their wicked tempo at home under the lights. The Conductor sees the Deacons winning by at last a touchdown.
