Center Joe Tukuafu is now the starter over Connor Pay
What to Expect from the Cougars
The offense for the Cougars is healthy so means they should have a big game. Jaren Hall is coming off another great performance and with all the receivers back he should throw the ball some more. The passing game has been mostly what the offense has been doing and needs to keep doing it to be successful the rest of this season. The running game has been struggling and I don’t see it getting much better.
The Defense needs to step it up and this starts with the coaches. Kalani Sitake has now taken over the defense and will coach and call plays from here on out. With many of the defenders struggling to stay healthy the younger guys will need to step up and fill those shoes. Max Tooley, Payton Wilgar and Micah Harper will need to lead this team on the field and keep them ready for what ever comes their way.
What to Expect from the Pirates
The offense for the Pirates have been strong this season and that could be a challenge for the Cougar defense. Holton Ahlers is the starting quarterback and he can throw the ball around all day long. If the Cougars can get in his face he will most likely throw an interception.
The defense for the Pirates has allowed a bunch of yards this season. They let UCF put up over 400 and South Florida put up over 500. When the Cougars are strong on offense they can put 400 yards. This defense could be good and shut down the Cougars so they need to play big on all downs.
