UCLA: Sophomore quarterback Josh Rosen completed 23-of-37 passes for 298 yards and a touchdown in last Saturday's 42-21 victory over UNLV. Rosen didn't throw multiple touchdown passes in either game this season as his Heisman campaign is off to a slow start. The Bruins are now 1-1 on the season but failed to cover in both games, losing outright as a 5-point underdog to Texas A&M in the opening week and failing to cover as a 27-point favorite last weekend.

BYU: The Cougars are now 1-1 on the year after losing 20-19 to Utah last Saturday night. BYU is 2-0 against the spread, however, covering as a 1-point favorite in an 18-16 win over Arizona in Week 1 and as a 3-point underdog to Utah last weekend. The under has cashed in both of BYU's games, as the Cougar defense held both of its opponents to 20 points or less.

OUR PICK: The under is 4-1 in the last five meetings between these two teams and is a perfect 4-0 in the Cougars' last four games in September. The under is also 5-2 in BYU's last seven Pac-12 games and is 7-2-1 in the Bruins' last 10 games coming off a win. With Rosen still learning UCLA's new offensive system and not firing on all cylinders yet, look for this game to fall under the total for bettors.
