The Cougar offense, once again, looked outstanding, but then looked like it got tired and did very little to end the last quarter and a half after holding a 31-6 lead.
Last Saturday standing outside the locker room in Reliant Stadium in Houston, Hill said his greatest desire was for the offense to play a complete game.
Hill and the offense are still in a holding pattern.
That will be a point of focus this week as the Cougars have 15 days to rest and prepare for the Badgers.
“That first half was as dominating performance as I’ve had against a quality opponent since I’ve been here,” said Mendenhall. “It was really strong football.”
BYU’s win ended a 50-game win streak by Boise State in the month of October.
That is a feat nobody’s seen out of the nation’s winningest programs since Oct. 6, 2001.
And that will gnaw at BSU — just like BYU’s last two losses to the Broncos — until they meet again next year in Boise.
In Provo, that settles in just fine.
