FOOTBALL

It was a crowd-riling first quarter, as the Romney brothers kicked off the USF game with a stunner of a play. The brother’s completed pass set the scene for the first quarter, allowing Masen Wake to score a touchdown, and BYU’s steam train, Tyler Allgeier, to score two. The three touchdowns left USF in the dust, keeping the score at 21-0 at the end of the first quarter.

Though BYU may have lost a little momentum into the second quarter, it didn’t break their “no trailing” streak — BYU stayed ahead on the scoreboard, and has done so the whole season. Neil Pau’u scored the quarter’s only touchdown, as USF scored two field goals to add some points to the board.

Regardless of USF’s two touchdowns in the third quarter, and another in the fourth, BYU came out victorious without having to fight for points in the last possession. The game ended at 35-27 with some time left on the clock.

As BYU faces Utah State this weekend, will the defense be ready to make up for the offense’s injuries? Will Jaren Hall be back in action or will Baylor Romney step up to the plate again? Tune in to After Further Review, and BYU Football with Kalani Sitake on this week to find out!

WOMEN’S VOLLEYBALL
