Our staff picks BYU-Western Kentucky on Halloween

BYU is 6-0 and ranked no. 11 in the AP poll heading into their matchup against Western Kentucky. Our staff makes score predictions for BYU-Western Kentucky.

Score prediction: 52 BYU - 7 WKU

WKU's only points will come from their defense.

Joe Wheat

Score prediction: 42 BYU - 3 WKU

BYU will take care of business. The Cougars just have too much firepower on both sides of the ball and will overwhelm the Hilltoppers from the start. I expect both Zach Wilson and Tyler Allgeier to feast for a half, and for WKU to struggle to move the ball against a stout BYU front. At the end of it all, the hardest fought battle between BYU and WKU in 2020 will remain a mascot poll on Twitter.

Casey Lundquist

Score prediction: 41 BYU - 10 WKU

Western Kentucky has a decent defense that could create some challenges for BYU's high-powered offense. However, the Hilltopper's offense might be the worst offense that BYU has faced this season. WKU won't have the firepower to keep up with BYU on Halloween night.
