BYU will look to exact revenge Saturday evening when they take on San Francisco in the Marriott Center. Vegas opened with BYU as a 10-point favorite over the Dons and KenPom gives BYU an 85% chance to win and predicts a 82-71 final score.

San Francisco is 16-9 (5-5 in WCC) on the year and have lost their last two games. They took Gonzaga down to the wire at home and are coming off a 12-point home loss to Pacific in which they scored only 48 points.

BYU lost 83-82 just two weeks in a game where the Cougars blew a 14-point second half lead. USF leading scorer Charles Minlend was held to just 6 points on 3-7 shooting, but reserve guard Khalil Shabazz had a career day with 32 points on 10-10 shooting. Shabazz had a 1-11 shooting night Thursday versus Pacific.

BYU-San Francisco will tip off 7:30 MT on BYUtv.
