The BYU Cougars and the East Carolina Pirates are both having the same fate as far as scores are concerned. The Cougars and Pirates are both 1-6 so far this season into the NCAA football. One team will surpass the other in this game, naturally. Most probably, the winners will be the Cougars. One team has a poor offense and another poor defense. In situations like these, the one with the poor defense often loses.
The Cougars have a poor offense. At the average of only 11.4 points per game, they are far worse than most of the teams this season. However, the team will be able to utilize the poor defense of their enemy and increase their average somewhat.
The defense is not stellar. But it’s good enough. The Cougars are only allowing 27.3 points per game, which is a good sign. This game too they will be stopping their opponents’ attempts to score.
BYU is on a five-game losing streak. This is the game where they have a clear shot at redeeming themselves. This time, a mere score of 7 or 10 won’t cut it. This time, it will be easier to go beyond that too. So, the Cougars will be looking forward to a good win. Tanner Mangum and Ula Tolutau will be aiding very importantly.
The Pirates have a poor defense. They are allowing 50.0 points per game. That also means they are allowing 600.0 total yards per game (326.1 passing yards and 273.9 rushing yards). If they want any chance at all to win a game, they need to work on this front.
Their offense is not great, but okay.Thomas Sirk and Hussein Howe are the forerunners for the team. The team is at 22.0 points per game.
If they get an opening, they can easily beat the offense of the BYU and have a greater score. But they will need to defend as well.
