Before you make any Utah State vs. BYU picks or college football predictions, you NEED to see the predictions from the SportsLine Projection Model.

The SportsLine Projection Model simulates every FBS college football game 10,000 times. Over the past six-plus years, the proprietary computer model has generated a stunning profit of more than $3,100 for $100 players on its top-rated college football picks against the spread. Anyone who has followed it has seen HUGE returns!

The model knows the Cougars are led by junior quarterback Jaren Hall, who was named one of eight Manning Award Stars of the Week. Hall completed 26 of 32 passes for 337 yards and four touchdowns, setting a career record for completion percentage (81.3), as BYU earned the win over Wyoming. For the season, Hall has completed 103 of 144 attempts (71.5 percent) for 1,164 yards and nine touchdowns. He has been picked off just once and has a rating of 158.7.

The model also knows the Aggies are led by sixth-year senior Logan Bonner. In last week's loss to UNLV, Bonner completed 27 of 41 passes for 313 yards (65.9 percent) and three touchdowns, but was picked off five times. His best game was in the season opener when he completed 20 of 29 passes (69 percent) for 281 yards and three touchdowns.
