What you need to know about BYU
The Cougars haven't been particularly dominant in any phase of the game, but the fact remains they are 3-0 and have beaten two ranked opponents to start the 2021 season.
Quarterback Jaren Hall has been efficient, completing 51-of-85 passes for 561 yards, seven touchdowns, and two interceptions. He's also racked up 166 yards rushing. Defensively, BYU is allowing a respectable 397.3 total yards per game, but more importantly they're only giving up only 16.7 points per contest.
What you need to know about South Florida
South Florida took out the frustrations of their early season struggles on the Florida A&M Rattlers on Saturday, posting an impressive 38-17 win. The Bulls have had issues on both sides of the ball in 2021, but the key to them keeping this game close will likely be how well their defense, which ranks among the worst in the country through three weeks, performs.
