Weber State @ Brigham Young
Current Records: Weber State 5-7; Brigham Young 9-5
What to Know
The Weber State Wildcats are 1-6 against the Brigham Young Cougars since December of 2015, but they'll have a chance to close the gap a little bit Thursday. Weber State is staying on the road to face off against BYU at 9 p.m. ET Dec. 22 at Marriott Center.
The Wildcats came out on top in a nail-biter against the Utah State Aggies on Monday, sneaking past 75-72. Five players on Weber State scored in the double digits: forward Dillon Jones (16), guard Junior Ballard (14), forward Dyson Koehler (12), guard KJ Cunningham (11), and guard Steven Verplancken Jr. (10).
Meanwhile, the Lindenwood Lions typically have all the answers at home, but on Tuesday BYU proved too difficult a challenge. BYU took their matchup against the Lions by a conclusive 90-61 score.
Weber State have to know they'll be fighting an uphill battle given the 12.5-point spread they are up against. They hadn't treated bettors all too well in the past (they are 3-7), but they might be worth taking a chance on now after beating the spread two games in a row.
Their wins bumped the Wildcats to 5-7 and the Cougars to 9-5. We'll see which team can carry over their success and which team inevitably falls when Weber State and BYU clash.
