BYU had some quarterback issues this season and their offense suffered as a result. The Cougars rank 66th in the country in scoring at 29.2 points per game. Riley Nelson got the most playing time but completed less than 60% of his passes and had 13 touchdowns and 12 interceptions. James Lark started the season finale against New Mexico State and threw for 384 yards and 6 touchdowns. No matter who starts at quarterback, they will be throwing the ball to Cody Hoffman early and often. Hoffman had 90 catches this season for 1134 yards and 11 touchdowns.
The Aztecs rank 44th in the nation in scoring defense allowing 24.5 points per game. As a team, San Diego State has 31 sacks and 11 interceptions. Cornerback Leon McFadden is a shut down corner, and I expect him to be faced with the task of covering Cody Hoffman.
