Here Come the Cougars!

Watch out! The “Mormons on a Mission” are rolling into Seattle with only one thought on their collective mind – and it’s not beer, women, tobacco, caffeine, self-pleasure, or freedom of choice – it’s beating the Huskies.

The Cougars are coming off an impressive 11-2 season capped by a win over UCLA in the Las Vegas Bowl (boy, I bet the BYU players had fun there…). Brigham Young is currently ranked 15th in the country and possess a very dangerous offense led by former Arizona St. quarterback, Max Hall. Last week, the junior threw for 486 yards and 2 touchdowns and hit over 80% of his passes, although he failed to hit this after the game:

UW’s young defense is going to struggle to keep BYU out of the endzone which will force Locker and the Husky offense to put up a lot of points to stay in the game. UW’s offensive line should have a more favorable matchup against the Cougar defensive line than it had last Saturday against Oregon’s. Hopefully, the OL will be able to open up running lanes and we’ll get to see what much hyped running back Chris Polk can do in some space.

BYU’s offense isn’t the only diverse thing about the school.

Oh my bad, it is.

Most pundits are picking a close, high-scoring game with the Cougars coming out on top. UW wants this game badly as a) it’s the home opener and b) Willingham’s job security is falling faster than a fat kid off a diving board and presumably, he will coach with a little more fire than usual to keep his 1.47 mil salary checks coming in. However, BYU also wants this game as the team (and quite a few analysts) believes they can be the non-BCS team to go undefeated and play in a BCS bowl this year, and a Pac-10 road game is a major obstacle on the path to that goal.

I expect this contest to be much closer than last week, but I don’t know if Washington has the experience and coaching ability to grind out a victory. We may not agree on a prediction for the game, but I’m sure we can all agree on this, do not fuck with these motherfuckers:
