Thread: Zach Attack, the NIU Class: N. Illinois @ BYU

  1. #1

    Default Zach Attack, the NIU Class: N. Illinois @ BYU

    The bye week is over, and the BYU week is here! So far in the 2018 season, the fighting puppies have managed wins against the storied football programs of Eastern Illinois, Central Michigan, Eastern Michigan, Ball State, and Ohio. Plus, we have a lot of freshman starting on Saturday, getting ready to shoulder the program for the future. Should be a enjoyable game.

    Rise and Shout!

    BYU is the school that's cool, and you know that it's true! A pippy poo!

    I would be shocked if we scored more than 21 points.

    #21 in rush defense and only giving up 23 per game. Held Utah to 17.

    I expect a low scoring slugfest. Thankfully they can't score either, but the Zach Wilson hype train is going to be deflated a bit this week.

    Alternate prediction: Wilson throws for 250, we get in the low hundreds rushing. Combined it is enough for a comfortable 17 point win due to N. Illinois not being able to finish their drives with touchdowns. Our total offense rank stays mediocre but the Wilson hype train doesn't slow down at all.

    NIU is fairly average on passing downs. Hopefully Zach can convert those 3rd and longs.

    Super happy about the 1:30pm start allowing me to refrain from popping the super dangerous caffeine pills. If Zach gets us > 30 pts again we'll be Friends Forever!

    I just can't put my trust in a kid related to SU. He is bound to be a dipshit in some way.

    If we don't get some solid help from the TEs, we might start wondering Did We Ever Have A Chance?

    I’m guessing he was going with Vitamin C and not the Zack Attack but I could be wrong.

    I keep trying to conjure the Zack Attack from Saved by the Bell in my mind, but all that is popping up is this.

    Vegas disagrees slightly. With a current line of BYU -7 and over/under of 42, the expected score would be 24.5-17.5 in favor of BYU. Still not a high scoring affair.

    Somewhat interesting gambling facts:

    BYU is 4-3 both in actual record and against the spread. The games they've actually won have been the same games they've won against the spread.

    BYU has been favored in three games this year, all home games - California, McNeese, and Hawaii. They are 2-1 when favored.

    The under won in each of BYU's first five games. The over has won the last two.

    That was a pretty sparse crowd shot there before kickoff.

    Hmm seems like we can run on this vaunted rush defense. I think we will be ok today.

    Lot's of pressure on Wilson by NIU. I like his escapability.

    Somebody tell the ref he’s supposed to block both defenders on that play, not just one.

    NIU is shutting down the run. Mix it up!

    I don't want to see many designed runs like that for the QB.
