Spiff’s Sidebar Stats – BYU vs Opponent Averages – Week 5

OREM, UTAH – As was patently obvious, the 31-0 drubbing against Michigan was BYU’s worst performance of the season. The Cougars were below average in every statistical category we look at in the Sidebar Stats.

 

The Nebraska, Boise State and UCLA games still remain as solid efforts however. Perhaps BYU can look to build on those successes rather than forgetting them and looking solely to their most recent showing and seeking a complete overhaul to what has worked so far this season.

 

Maybe BYU should be 3-1 given those early games’ strong efforts. The season is far from over. I still think the Cougars can have a great season and really build towards the future.

 

Nota bene: Remember the season averages listed are those WITHOUT the BYU game factored into the calculations.
