The Cougar linebacker had four of his team's five turnovers against Wyoming — three fumble recoveries and an interception that sealed the game.

Big 5 gridiron futures

Buy - BYU: Going bowling no matter what happens against U.

Sell - Utah: Injuries give U. excuse vs. Cougs. We're not buying

Sell - USU: Hawaiian trip was nice . . . until the game started

Hold - WSU: Bad loss last week, but overall a good year

Sell - SUU: Can salvage some pride vs. WSU, but don't expect it

By the numbers

1 — Game time for the Weber State vs. Southern Utah contest Saturday in Cedar City. It was originally set for 3 p.m., but was moved up by two hours

2 — Number of top offensive players Utah lost to serious injury vs. New Mexico on Saturday: QB Brian Johnson and WR John Madsen

3 — Consecutive wins by Utah over BYU. Also the number of points the Utes scored in a shutout win over the Cougs the last time the game was played in Provo

4 — Years since BYU has been to a bowl — a streak that likely will end this season

5 — Games in a row Utah State has lost. Even SUU has won more recently

50 — Yards of USU kicker Justin Hamblin's first-quarter field goal against Hawaii — 15 yards better than his previous best as an Aggie

80 — Number of games in the all-time series between Utah and BYU. The Utes lead 48-28-4
