"Maybe a little overconfidence, defensively, from all the accolades — I think there was a little edge that was missing," BYU head coach Bronco Mendenhall, told Cougar Tracks. "The plays were defendable."
Oregon State's passing attack was led by Cody Vaz, a quarterback making his first FBS start, who threw for 332 yards and 3 TDs at BYU. The Beavers scored 42 points and racked up 450 yards of total offense, according to the article, the first team to gain more than 300 yards against BYU in 13 games.
"They executed their (plays) at a higher level, but we were not sharp in the secondary," Mendenhall told Cougar Tracks. "We dropped eight the majority of the time, so there was plenty of help — they just didn't do their job correctly."
