(Rick Egan | The Salt Lake Tribune) McKay Jacobsen runs for the cougars, as Nate Berhe defends for the Aztecs, in football action, BYU vs. San Diego State, game at Lavell Edwards Stadium in Provo, Saturday, October 9, 2010
Thursday on Utah TV: Can the Cougars find enough offense to be San Diego State?

Tonight, it's the final chapter of "A Tale of Two BYU Football Teams" - the defense, which has played, ahem, at a high level; and the offense, which has not.

The 7-5 Cougars take on 9-3 San Diego State in the Poinsettia Bowl (6 p.m., ESPN). Rumor is that James Lark, not Riley Nelson, will start at quarterback for BYU.
