The Cougars' season started with great promise, with four straight SU wins including a convincing 41-7 win over Texas as one-point underdogs in Week 2. However, BYU has failed to cover since that victory, posting a pair of outright losses as double-digit favorites and were embarrassed in a 55-30 beating at the hands of Boise State last weekend.

The 5-3 Blue Raiders have struggled with consistency at times this season, covering in just three of their last five outings, but were convincing in a solid 34-22 win over UAB as two-point home favorites last weekend. The win was Middle Tennessee's fifth straight at home, where they are 7-1 ATS in their last eight. However, the Blue Raiders were thumped in a visit to BYU last season, losing 37-10 as 23.5-point road underdogs.
