After a 3-TD loss to Oregon, BYU opened as a 22-point favorite versus Wyoming in Provo. The over/under for the game is 49.5.

BYU fell down to 19 in the AP poll after the loss to the Ducks. The Cowboys are 3-1 on the season and are coming off a home win versus a good Air Force team. The Cowboys’ lone loss was a 38-6 defeat at Illinois in week 0. Their other two wins are a 3-point home win over Tulsa and 33-10 win over FCS foe Northern Colorado.

Wyoming’s QB is Utah State transfer Andrew Peasley, who was largely a backup in his 4 seasons for the Aggies. In 4 games, he has 592 passing yards, 3 TDs, and 2 interceptions on 60% completion percentage. He also has 145 rushing yards.

BYU-Wyoming will kickoff Saturday night at 8:15 MT on ESPN2 in LaVell Edwards Stadium.
