Washington (minus 3.5) vs. BYU, San Francisco — The gut feeling here is that Washington is a better team, but I’m not inclined to jump on the side with the recent coaching transition. No way of knowing how the Huskies react to that. Should be a heavy dose of the ground game, with Bishop Sankey playing perhaps his last UW game, and BYU with two 1,000-yard rushers in QB Taysom Hill and RB Jamaal Williams. Brigham Young 31, Washington 27.
Bowl record (Pac-12): 2-1. Versus the spread — 2-1.
