Gonzaga at BYU free live stream (2/8/21): How to watch college basketball's No. 1 team, time ...

The top-ranked team in college basketball and the sport’s best bet at an undefeated season will encounter a challenge Monday night.

Gonzaga (18-0) will play at BYU (15-4) at 11 p.m. ET on Feb. 8 in a clash of West Coast Conference heavyweights. The No. 1 Bulldogs have a shot to become the first unbeaten national championship since Indiana accomplished the feat in the 1975-76 season, but they’ll have to clear several regular-season obstacles before they set their sights on tournament play.

Monday’s contest at the Cougars is one of the toughest left on the schedule. ESPN will broadcast the game.

Four different Gonzaga players average more than 11.5 points per game this season for one of the most explosive offensive teams in recent college hoops history. Forward Corey Kispert leads the way with 19.9 points per game and has hit more than 57% of his field goal attempts, 48% of his threes and 89% of his free throws.

Forward Drew Timme and guards Jalen Suggs and Joel Ayayi also supply the Bulldogs with scoring prowess.

So does BYU have a shot at the upset? The Cougars are the second-place team in the WCC, but they suffered a 86-69 loss to Gonzaga on Jan. 7.

Kispert poured in 23 points in that contest, and BYU finished with 16 turnovers. The Cougars can hope that a better game from leading scoring Alex Barcello helps them challenge the Bulldogs this time around. Barcello, who averages 15.2 points per game on the year and shoots 48.6% from three, had nine points on 3-for-11 shooting (1-for-4 on threes) in the first meeting against the Zags.
