Come, let us gaze into the crystal ball.

1. Clips of this commercial - LINE: 1.5 - I will continue to use this line until the administration at BYU understand its error. It's not only the Great and Spacious Building mocking this, but the folks currently partaking of the fruit of the Tree of Life. OVER

2. Combined Wheaton/Cooks Receptions - LINE: 9.5 - With the exception of Marquess Wilson, BYU has yet to face a playmaking receiver the likes of these two. Big play capable, terrific in the open field, and an ability to catch the ball in traffic, this Beaver duo is something the Cougars will be forced to deal with. With Cody Vaz making his first start, you can bet he will rely on the duo for comfort. OVER

3. Oregon State Pass Attempts greater than 40 yards - LINE: 3.5 - With Sean Mannion at the helm, I would place my student loan on the over. With Cody Vaz? I'll place my car note. OVER

4. Riley Nelson snaps as a QB - LINE: 0.5 - Cracked vertebrae do not heal in this short of time, Bronco is playing mind games with the opposition, and no Doctor would ever clear him to play. (Assumptions brought to you by me. I could very well be wrong) UNDER

5. Attendance at LaVell Edwards Stadium - LINE: 62,811 - It's in the Afternoon! OVER

6. Cody Hoffman Receiving Yards - LINE: 73.5 - As we saw last season in Corvallis, Mr. Hoffman takes this matchup with extra incentive. OVER

7. Jamaal Williams Total Rush Yards - LINE: 70.5 - Oregon State's front will contain the young back. UNDER

8. Total Points Scored - LINE: 37 - http://youtu.be/N2sIyKFkk2s?t=7s UNDER

9. Line: BYU by -5.5 - The Cougars were favored by 4.5 before the Sean Mannion news broke. Bronco Mendenhall's defense is a pillar of the college football world and with BYU's questions at the QB position forever entrenched to the 2012 campaign, they will know just what lies on their shoulders. Oregon State's offense will move the ball between the 20's, but the Cougars D will tighten. Big day from Cody Hoffman and Kanekeau Friel. BYU will get its first win over a Top 10 team since the historic victory over Oklahoma in 2009. COVER BYU 23 Oregon State 10
