Last season, BYU defeated Cincinnati in Provo — 38-24. Cincinnati had the lead going into the fourth quarter. The Bearcats were up 24-17. However, BYU got hot passing in the 4th quarter and scored 21 points.

This season, both BYU and Cincinnati seem pretty different from 1 year ago. Will the game this Saturday in the Queen City be different? Keith and Tosh discuss the matchup on this week’s CougarCast.

In this episode of CougarCast:

  • Excitement for the rivalry game — for the Cougarettes. Who is the real national champion? (1:15)
  • The overly confident BYU fanbase and the irony of the source of their certainty — that Cincinnati is only 4-4 and have poor QB play. (3:20)
  • The impact of the loss of Travis Tuiloma and Meti Taliauli for the remainer of the season. Plus, the legacy of Travis Tuiloma. (6:00)
  • What part of the Cincinnati offense scares us? Their receivers. (10:15)
  • What challenges with the BYU linebackers and secondary face on Saturday? (14:20)
  • Cincinnati’s defense hasn’t been very good at stopping the run, and has been worse at stopping the pass. How is BYU going to try to attack the Bearcats? (16:00)
  • Ten for Tosh! (19:25)
  • Chili Cookoffs and Yahtzee (22:45)
  • The guys are still reeling over the fake punt. (30:40)
  • Game and score predictions (33:00)
  • Are you going to be able to watch the game as it is on CBS Sports Network? (34:20)
