Florida State vs. BYU Odds

Florida State vs. BYU odds were the 2nd most sought after coming into Saturday.

BYU opened this season with one of the biggest wins in school history, 14-13 over then-No. 3 Oklahoma at Cowboys Stadium in Dallas. The victory vaulted the Cougars into the national spotlight and quarterback Max Hall emerged as a potential Heisman Trophy candidate.

After throwing for 329 yards against the Sooners, Hall completed 24 of 32 passes for 309 yards, two touchdowns and one interception in last Saturday's 54-3 win over Tulane at the Superdome. The Cougars moved up two spots in the latest AP poll, their highest ranking since being fifth in the final poll of the 1996 season.

"It shows we are going to come out every week hungry to play and eager to play because we love the game and love to win," said Hall, named the Mountain West offensive player of the week for the second time in a row.

The Noles have struggled against the pass this season, and BYU ranks 10th in passing yards. The Cougars are 0-2 all time against the Seminoles.

Florida State coach Bobby Bowden is plenty worried about his secondary being able to keep up with Hall and his array of receivers. The Seminoles have struggled to stop the pass, yielding 599 yards in two games.

"Their quarterback can throw the heck out of the ball," Bowden said. "He can thread it."

Bowden is also concerned after his team's close call last weekend.

BYU was getting just over 80 percent of the public backing in this game.  Brigham Young was favored by -8 at Sportsbetting.com.

The Cougars are 21-8-1 ATS in their last 30 games after accumulating more than 280 yards passing in their previous game.

The Cougars are 10-4 ATS in their last 14 games after allowing less than 100 yards rushing in their previous game.
