Can the BYU Cougars match up with the Utah Utes?

Since the start of the 2013-14 season, Utah has a 37-3 record at the Huntsman Center. BYU has a very difficult challenge trying to win on the Utes' home court, but are there any matchups the Cougars can exploit? The last time the BYU Cugars played at the Utah Utes, in December 2013, the outcome was not pretty.  BYU's perimeter trio of Tyler Haws, Kyle Collinsworth, and Matt Carlino combined to shoot 9/37 from the field, and the Cougars could not stop Jordan Loveridge and current NBA player Delon Wright, falling to the Utes in an 81-64 blowout.  But after Utah's 90-66 loss to Miami in the...

BYU's Kyle Collinsworth (belatedly) records 7th triple-double, breaks NCAA career record

It was a little anti-climactic, but the Cougar guard is college basketball's new triple-double king. BYU's Kyle Collinsworth has broken the NCAA record for most triple-doubles in a career, according to a release issued by the school on Sunday. If you're wondering how a BYU player could officially break such a record on the Sabbath, despite the fact that the school has a strong rule against competing on Sundays, then you'd probably like an explanation. Here's the skinny: Collinsworth ended BYU's 95-81 victory over Belmont on Saturday night with 29 points, 10 assists and 9 rebounds — one...

Belmont vs. BYU recap: The Cougars outshoot the Bruins en route to a 95-81 victory

Cougars use a second half three-point barrage to best the Bruins One of the most used coaching axioms is "basketball is a game of runs."  No game this season has epitomized this more than the game against Belmont.  The first half had two huge runs, the first BYU was on the wrong end of as Belmont hit three-point shot after three-point shot to open up an eleven point lead.  BYU countered with some strong defense leading to some fast break points and timely back to back three-point makes by Jake Toolson to crawl back into the game and enter the half down by only two points.  The second...

BYU vs Utah State Recap: Cougars wrangle the Aggies in Logan for 51-28 win

The Cougars snap the Aggies 13 game home winning streak in dominant fashion. First Half Once again the BYU Cougars and Utah State Aggies played a game that involved wild plays and intense momentum swings. The Aggies started off the excitement early as they trotted out Senior quarterback Chuckie Keeton on senior day. Keeton was at risk of never beating the Cougars and relished in his final opportunity. With the Cougars kicking off to start the game, Chuckie wasted no time in driving his team 75 yards that was capped off by his own 52 yard rushing touchdown to take the 7-0 lead. BYU didn't...

How to watch Belmont vs. BYU: Game time, TV schedule, radio and more

BYU completes its three-game home stand tonight with a matchup with the Belmont Bruins. The Cougars are coming off a surprisingly close matchup with Mississippi Valley State. And while the Cougars still picked up the win, they will need to clean up their play to have a chance against a talented Belmont team. Belmont arrives in Provo on a two-game winning streak and sitting at 4-2 overall. The Bruins return 11 letter winners from last year's NCAA tourney team. Belmont is averaging 86 points a game on the season, so a strong performance on both the offensive and defensive side of the ball...

BYU Football Bold Predictions: Cougars avenge last season's loss

BYU leaves Logan with a win after scoring in the final minutes to close the game. Last week's game against Fresno State may have started slow, causing countless fans to raise their arms and say "here we go again," but that didn't stop the Cougars from cruising to a easy victory over the Bulldogs. It seems like its been months since Utah State dominated Boise State and forced eight turnovers. Since that game the Aggies have gone 2-3, losing to San Diego State, New Mexico and Air Force. To be fair the three losses have been on the road and the two wins are at home. Ending the season at home...

How to watch BYU vs. Utah State: Game time, TV schedule, radio and more

BYU will finish up its regular season schedule in Logan for a matchup with the Utah State Aggies. The Cougars will be looking to avenge their loss to the Aggies at home last season while the Aggies will look to retain "The Old Wagon Wheel" for more than a season for what would be the first time in over forty years. This should make for an intriguing matchup, especially between BYU's 21st ranked pass offense, which averages just shy of 300 yards per game and Utah State's 9th ranked pass defense, which is giving up just over 171 yards per game through the air. For a complete breakdown of this...

The BYU Cougars face off against the struggling Aggies of Utah State this weekend and look to re-establish their running game against one of the top rushing defenses in the country. The BYU Cougars face off against the struggling Aggies of Utah State this Thanksgiving weekend, and they look to continue to re-establish their struggling running game against one of the top rushing defenses in the country in Logan on Saturday afternoon.

BYU in the NFL - Week 11: Ziggy Ansah adds another sack to his season total

Ziggy Ansah was the only former Cougar to see significant playing time on either the offensive or defensive side of the ball in Week 11. Ansah continued to establish himself as one of the best pass rushers in the league with another strong performance this past week. Ansah had a tackle, a sack, a tackle for loss, a QB hit, and also drew a holding call in the end zone that resulted in a safety in the Lions' win over the Raiders. Ziggy smiling, sitting and relaxing in the end zone waiting for the safety call he knows is coming lol. @ziggy_ansah @detroitlionsnfl #onepride @nfl #nfl...

BYU vs Mississippi Valley State recap: Cougars struggle but put away the Delta Devils 75-68

In what was expected to be a blowout, the young Cougars were unable to shake the Delta Devils until the end. In 2010 the BYU Cougars welcomed in the visiting Mississippi Valley State Delta Devils into the Marriott Center and only allowed them to score 36 points, and only 10 in the first half. Many expected to see a similar game tonight. The Cougars and the Delta Devils had other plans however. BYU started off strong and even built a 17 point lead early into the game. With the score 22-5 the Cougars looked to end the game early and give the bench a night of extended minutes. That is when the...

Fresno State vs. BYU football recap: Cougars demolish the Bulldogs 52-10

BYU Football Bold Predictions: Seniors go out in blowout over Fresno State

BYU celebrates Senior Night with a big win over the Bulldogs as they dominate the game from start to finish. Not much can be said about last week's game. The Cougars had a chance to get a big win over a P5 opponent and couldn't get it done. Yes, Missouri is not the team it typically is and its offense is terrible this year, but it's still a road win against an SEC opponent. 3rd down defense was terrible for BYU and one could argue that and a couple of plays were the difference between a win and a loss. It can be safely said that Saturday afternoon's game against Fresno State will be very...

BYU vs Adams State recap: Cougars stifle the Grizzlies 97-56

Rebounding from a tough road game, the Cougars put the visitors away early in the second half. After a miserable performance on Monday the BYU Cougars were looking to get back on track as the Adams State Grizzlies came into Provo. Some of the concerns that Coach Rose was looking to correct were the free-throw shooting, turnovers, and the transition offense. Early in the first half the Cougars struggled in all three areas and the Grizzlies took advantage. Although BYU took an early lead off a block by Corbin Kaufusi that led to a Kyle Collinsworth dunk and then a layup by Kaufusi, The...
