No. 22 BYU, Louisiana Tech poised for lots of offense

No. 22 BYU is undefeated and scoring a lot of points.So is Louisiana Tech.One team will get its first loss of the season when the Cougars meet the Bulldogs in matchup of 2-0 teams on Friday night in Provo, Utah.BYU, which has scored at least one touchdown in all eight quarters it has played, outscored Navy and Troy by a combined score of 103-10 — outgaining them 1,244 yards to 330 yards.Zach Wilson completed 23 of 29 passes for a career-high 392 yards and two touchdowns against Troy. He also rushed for two touchdowns.”He’s throwing the ball really well and he’s seeing things really well,” Cougars coach Kalani Sitake said of Wilson. “He’s played a lot of games for us and the guys look to him as a leader.”The Cougars had two 100-yard receivers as Dax Milne finished with seven receptions for 140 yards and a touchdown while Gunner Romney produced five catches for 138 yards.”All it means is we can’t get too big of an ego, too big of a head, going into (the Louisiana Tech game),” Wilson said. “We are a good offense, but it means nothing if we stop it now.”It’s not just the BYU offense that has been dominant. The Cougars’ defense has nine sacks after recording just 17 all of last season.”I don’t believe in style points,” Sitake said. “I believe in just winning the game and establishing an identity that we want to get done for that game.”The Cougars had 19 days between their first two games after a scheduled contest against Army was postponed because of COVID-19 issues.
