Here are three thoughts as BYU enters the bye week above .500 on the arm of true freshman quarterback Zach Wilson, redshirt freshman tailback Lopini Katoa, freshman wide receiver Gunner Romney and junior all-purpose back Aleva Hifo, among others.

Halfway through the season, BYU is coming off two consecutive bad losses and is open to changes. One of those changes could come at quarterback, where freshman Zach Wilson is likely to get his first significant playing time this week against Hawaii.
Among the most notable enigmas is BYU’s pass rush, which was once a staple of defensive coordinator Ilaisa Tuiaki’s scheme. Yet the Cougars have averaged just one sack per game through the first six contests of 2018.
Head coach Kalani Sitake explained during his Monday afternoon press conference that the Cougars’ 3-3 season will spark some necessary improvements, especially after a 45-20 home loss to in-state rival Utah State last Friday.
