New, 8 comments

This week’s podcast addresses questions about the Y’s chances against the Badgers and if a solution is around the corner on offense.

Utah v BYU

The Cougars have once again started a season with the all too familiar record of 1-2. This weekend, they welcome the Wisconsin Badgers to LaVell Edwards Stadium in a bit to avoid falling to 1-3 for the 2nd straight season.

It is going to take a titanic effort for the Cougars to get a win on Saturday.

Along with an in-depth look at the Badgers, Tosh and Keith discuss the shift in thinking that must occur if BYU is going to defeat the Utes again.
