BYU Cougars Open as Week 2 Betting Underdogs vs Broncos

The BYU Cougars are hoping that history does not repeat itself after they lost quarterback Taysom Hill in their season opener as they get set to face the Boise State Broncos on Saturday.

The Cougars started last season 4-0 straight up, but their signal caller fractured his leg in their fifth game against Utah State. BYU proceeded to drop their next four, including the game against the Aggies, while failing to cover in each.

Boise State could see an offensive boost thanks to running back Devan Demas. Though the junior back entered last week’s game third on the depth chart, he averaged five yards per carry in limited action which prompted coach Bryan Harsin to say Demas will see more opportunities.
