FOOTBALL

The crowd was wild, but BYU’s football was even wilder. In another interstate rivalry game, the BYU Cougars proved that they’re a force to be reckoned with. Tyler Allgeier started the first quarter off with a touchdown that would solidify the Cougars’ trajectory for the evening. BYU remains one of four teams in the nation to have not trailed in a game this season. Thanks to Allgeier as well as Jake Oldroyd’s record-breaking field goals, the Cougars got off to a brilliant start.

The second quarter saw the Cougars scoring two more touchdowns from Isaac Rex and Tyler Allgeier. After a head injury on the field, Baylor Romney came out of play going into halftime, and was replaced by third-string quarterback Jacob Conover, a freshman from Arizona.

It was a touch-and-go start for Jacob Conover in the third quarter for his BYU debut. Neither team put anything on the scoreboard in the third quarter, keeping the game at 24-13 in favor of BYU. Though the third quarter seemed like a rough start, Jacob Conover soon found his footing, and proved BYU’s quarterback depth in the fourth quarter.

Jake Oldroyd put more points on the board in the fourth, with a 32-yard field goal to bring the Cougars up 27-13. Utah State closed the gap a little with a touchdown to bring the score to 27-20 and made it anyone’s game as the clock counted down. But an interception by Malik Moore was all it took for Tyler Allgeier to get another touchdown for BYU. As the last minute counted down, BYU let the seconds run out and ended the game with a score of 34-20. The Cougars won their 5th consecutive game, and later jumped from 13th place to 10th in the College Football Rankings.
