HC Todd Simon has Southern Utah believing they can win the Big Sky after solid season last year. Four players that started at least 16 games are back and they also get back their best player, Dwayne Morgan who missed all but a couple games last season. He is their best player hands down. The comeback win in double OT in Lincoln over Nebraska ruined the Husker's new Coach Fred Hoiberg's week.
BYU has new Coach Mark Pope at the helm after Dave Rose stepped aside after a long solid career in Provo. This Cougar team will be solid and they took out CS-Fullerton by 18 points in Pope's debut. However in game two they got beat by old MWC foe, San Diego State by a 76-71 count. I think BYU wins the game but that the T-Birds can keep it inside of ten points as long as they get off to a decent start. I'll trust that underrated Coach Simon will have them ready to play. Also, BYU's best player Yoeli Childs is suspended until December.
UPDATE - 2:18 PM PT - WEDNESDAY - LINE DOWN TO 11.5 POINTS SO $$ COMING IN ON SOUTHERN UTAH
