BYU football: Cougars score 28 in first quarter, lead big over Idaho at half
PROVO — Running back Jamaal Williams scored two rushing touchdowns and the BYU offense scored on each of its first three possessions to lead the Cougars to a big halftime lead over the Idaho Vandals, 42-7.
The Cougars rolled up 367 yards of total offense and the defense forced three turnovers, including a recovered fumble for a touchdown, as the Vandals looked totally overmatched on a frigid night at LaVell Edwards Stadium.
Y. kicker Justin Sorensen shanked a field-goal attempt near the end of the first half after a poor snap and hold, but Idaho fumbled on the next play. BYU elected to go for it on fourth down a few seconds later, with Nelson picking a first down on the ground, but Hoffman dropped a pass in the end zone on the next play to end the half.
