BYU sits at 1-6 at the midway point of the 2017 season. We know the losses have piled up one-by-one this season, but how have the Cougars stats stacked up compared to their opponents season averages? Let’s dive into the numbers.
Portland State, Utah State, and Boise State games were the only contests where the defense did not give up the opponents season averages for the most part. Offensively has been a nightmare. The Cougars have only exceeded the opposing defenses averages once and that was against Utah State where BYU ran for 210 yards in a losing effort.
East Carolina coming up has the nation’s worst defense. Will BYU rise to the occasion and start to light up the scoreboard?
What conclusions do you takeaway from these stats at the midway point?
