With 189 rushing yards, BYU finished well short of its 277.8 per-game average, which was 13th nationally entering Saturday. With Hill’s 244 passing yards, however, the Cougars didn’t need to be as much of a threat on the ground against the 20th-best total defense in the nation. After averaging 185 passing yards through the first four games of the season, Hill has averaged 261 yards the past two weeks.

With five receptions and one touchdown catch, Cody Hoffman is now one reception and two touchdowns away from becoming BYU’s all-time leading receiver in both categories.

Jamaal Williams rushed 17 times for 86 yards and a touchdown, while Hill had 15 carries for 65 yards and a score. The Cougars committed no turnovers but had eight penalties.

Strange 2nd half play calling. Houston will be scary. Ignore the who-played-who discussion. Houston will be dangerous.

Houston is big, fast, and mean. Hopefully BYU establish the pass and open up the run. Otherwise Hill and Williams will get pretty banged up and their receivers will be pretty bored.
