After the collapse of Brigham Young University in Salt Lake City against the Utah Utes every analyst must reevaluate their picks for the rest of the season. In one of my articles, 4 Make-or-Break Games in 2012 BYU MUST Win, the game at Utah was one of them. Another make-or-break game is Boise State.
If BYU loses at Boise State it will be 2-2 and facing what may well be an 8-4 season facing Notre Dame and Georgia Tech.
The Boise State game is more important now than it was last week because it is now ranked at No. 24 in the Associated Press Poll. If BYU wants positive exposure it must—I repeat, must—bounce back and beat Boise State.
In looking at Boise State it did very well against Michigan State, and even better against a Miami (OH) team. Right now Miami (OH) looks like it might be in the league with BYU, and that isn't the kind of league BYU wants to play in. While Ohio State took the Miami RedHawks to the woodshed, it picked up a win against the Southern Illinois Salukis in a 30-14 mismatch.
So where is BYU among those teams? Thursday night we will find out if it belongs with the likes of Boise State, Michigan State and Ohio State, or Miami (OH), Weber State and Southern Illinois.
We will also find out if BYU will present ardent fans with “Debacle II” or a bounce-back win. Following is my review of the game and critical things BYU must do to avoid a second debacle game.
