According to the latest pregame odds from FanDuel, the Cincinnati Bearcats are slight favorites heading into a difficult matchup against the BYU Cougars!

Cincinnati should compete with the Cougars but it’s certainly going to be challenging to pull off a victory unless the recent offensive struggles are fixed.

It will be key for the Bearcats to avoid mistakes on both sides of the ball, correct the red zone struggles and limit BYU’s dangerous downfield passing attack.

The upcoming road trip to BYU is an early test for Scott Satterfield’s team as the program hopes to regain momentum against a quality opponent.
