Fans will not be tossing golf balls and mustard bottles from the stands when former BYU coach Bronco Mendenhall, now in his sixth season in Virginia, steps on the opponent’s sidelines at LaVell Edwards Stadium on Saturday night.
BYU can play the ball, which could certainly be difficult for Virginia. Virginia can be eaten up by teams that can run the ball, and teams that can run the ball can also keep the ball away from Brennan Armstrong and the UVA offensive. This is where a strange stat comes in: BYU has an average ball possession time of 28:27 per game. It’s UVA, the Quick Strike team, which has an average of more than 31 minutes of ball possession per competition. The pressure is on BYU to keep up and I’m not sure a ball control offensive can keep up with a game manager QB. Should be fun in the west, but the ‘Hoos will have too much on the line. Forecast: Virginia 45, BYU 28.
