College GameDay picks for BYU-Coastal Carolina
“I tell you what, both teams fantastic on offense. Both when you look at BYU’s defense, seventh in the FBS, only yielding just less than 300 yards per contest. And Zach Wilson, this guy is having a phenomenal season. I have to go with the BYU Cougars.”
“I agree. I think the Chanticleers can hang for a while. But I just think the depth of BYU and the physicality … going up against this big, huge BYU front will take it’s toll late in the game and BYU will win.”
“I think that’s the story here is the styles that they play with. If you look at Coastal Carolina, they are going to try and get it out in space and utilize the quarterback who’s making great decisions and get their skill out in space. And then you have BYU that’s going to try to win at the line of scrimmage. I’m gonna go in alignment with the boys here, I think the line of scrimmage is the difference. I’m gonna have to go with BYU.”
I’m going to have to pick Coastal, for sure. It’s my alma mater. I think it’s great what BYU did. You know, I think, they’ve got to come down to earth. Thank them for coming to play Coastal, I think it’s great for the school. I’m really looking forward to watching the game and hopefully, it can be close and Coastal can win it.

Lee Corso Headgear Pick
Coastal is 9-0 and 18th in the Playoff rankings and they are playing at home. That’s really good stuff. But BYU is 9-0 and 13th in the Playoff rankings. BYU will play anybody, anywhere, anytime. So I’m going with BYU. Go Cougars!
