College Football Week 7: #10 Oregon State At BYU
|Another week, another win for Mike Riley’s squad, which is now 4-0 after a quiet 19-6 victory over Washington State. He will have to find a way to keep winning without his starting quarterback.||Coaching||In five of his seven seasons in Provo, Bronco Mendenhall has won at least 10 games. The Cougars are 4-2 with their losses by a combined four points.|
|Quarterback Sean Mannion is out indefinitely after injuring his knee against WSU. Cody Vaz saw limited action in 2010 but hasn’t played since. The Beavers may have to lean on a rushing attack that has been nonexistent so far this season.||Offense||The BYU offense has been hit or miss: the Cougars have scored in the 40s twice but also have two 6-point performances, including last week against Utah State. Senior Riley Nelson reclaims the quarterback job after his replacement got hurt last week.|
|The Beavers gave up six points and forced five turnovers; not a bad ratio. Senior Jordan Poyer had three interceptions. With their offense a question mark, this unit may need another big performance on Saturday.||Defense||The Cougars are in the top 5 in scoring and total defense, but that is partly due to weak competition. They are getting after the quarterback though, something that should continue on Saturday against an inexperienced signal-caller.|
|Oregon State’s sample sizes are smaller than most since it has only played four games and many of those have been low-possession games. The numbers look decent though, aside from getting nothing on kickoff returns.||Special Teams||BYU got a field goal attempt blocked last week. The Cougars special teams play has been underwhelming.|
We'll just call it a tie
