Both programs are coming off blowout victories, and this should be one of the most competitive matchups featuring strong programs of college football’s Week 2. Baylor smoked Albany 69-10, and Blake Shapen played well as he gets going in his first season as a full-time starter, completing 17-of-20 passes for 214 yards with two touchdowns.
BYU ran all over the USF Bulls with 312 rushing yards in a 50-21 victory to open its season. Jaren Hall completed 25-of-32 passes for 261 yards with two touchdowns and an interception as both teams will see much tougher tests in what should be a fun one late on Saturday night.
BYU is a 2.5-point favorite on DraftKings Sportsbook with -135 moneyline odds, making Baylor +115 underdogs. The over/under is set at 53.
