PROVO — It's game week in Cougar Town, and BYU are 12.5-point favorites over the Bulls of South Florida.

But should they be?

Cougar Beat podcast host Sean Walker is joined by's Caleb Turner — also the emeritus sports editor of The Universe at BYU — to wrap up fall camp and look ahead to BYU football's season opener Sept. 3 at USF (2 p.m. MDT, ESPNU).

The duo break down the biggest takeaways from fall camp, including an offensive line that players and coaches believe run 8-11 deep, and an offense that returns more production in the country than any other after finishing the 2021 season ranked No. 17 in total offense.

Is the strength of this year's BYU team still the offensive line? Quarterback Jaren Hall thinks so, and who are we to doubt him?

The guys also discuss the status of wide receivers Puka Nacua and Gunner Romney, who are still atop the Week 1 depth chart but have played sparingly over the final days and weeks of fall camp. Will the dynamic duo be on the plane bound for Tampa?
