Brigham Young vs. Pacific: How to watch, schedule, live stream info, game time, TV channel

Who’s Playing

Pacific @ Brigham Young

Current Records: Pacific 5-9; Brigham Young 12-3

What to Know

The Brigham Young Cougars are 9-2 against the Pacific Tigers since January of 2016, and they’ll have a chance to extend that success on Thursday. BYU and Pacific will face off in a West Coast battle at 9 p.m. ET at Marriott Center. The Cougars won both of their matches against Pacific last season (95-87 and 80-52) and are aiming for the same result this time around.

Last week, BYU wrapped up 2021 with a 65-53 victory over the Westminster (UT) Griffins.

Meanwhile, Pacific got maybe a little too into the holiday spirit, gifting the California Golden Bears an easy 73-53 win. One thing holding the Tigers back was the mediocre play of forward Jeremiah Bailey, who did not have his best game: he finished with only eight points on 3-for-10 shooting in his 25 minutes on the court.

BYU is the favorite in this one, with an expected 17-point margin of victory. Those playing the odds have seen things go back and forth with the Cougars, who are 7-6 against the spread.

Brigham Young’s win lifted them to 12-3 while Pacific’s loss dropped them down to 5-9. We’ll see if BYU can repeat their recent success or if Pacific bounces back and reverse their fortune.
