10 must-know facts and stats about the upcoming BYU-Boise State game
PROVO — BYU is on a four-game winning streak — its most recent victory a 47-46 heart-stopper over Houston reminiscent of wacky WAC shootouts of decades past. Although the Cougars in blue squeaked by the Cougars wearing red, a win is a win, and they gladly took it, improving to 5-2 on the season.
Taysom Hill had another excellent performance. Despite throwing three interceptions (one of which was a pick six), he passed for 417 yards, four touchdowns and netted 128 rushing yards on 34 carries. Hill actually gained 194 rushing yards, but lost a lot of yards on sacks.
Brigham Young now turns its attention to a contest against the 5-2 Boise State Broncos at 6 p.m. MDT on Friday at LaVell Edwards Stadium. ESPN will televise the game.
In anticipation of the showdown, here are 10 must-know facts and stats about BYU and Boise State.
