Go Cougars!

Too bad Washington has scored 2 TDs because Sorensen can't kick it out of the endzone on kickoffs.

BYU is obviously the better team. If we don't beat ourselves we'll win.

What a game. Hill does it all. And that may be BYUs weakness.

Apo, and the tight ends, no where to be found. Tackling, is also AWOL. This could get real ugly, real fast.

Riverton, UT

Why on earth is Hoffman throwing the ball on a critical 3rd quarter drive?! Hello! Wake up coaches!

Herndon, VA

Down 2 touchdowns 4th quarter, little momentum, 4th and 3 at 42. Of course, we punt.

Lots of running calls despite being down 2 touchdowns, dropped passes, poor throws, missed tackled, poor special teams play.

BYU is a head case. It's been the same in many of the big games this year.

We do kick some nice field goals in the red zone.

And we do run up a lot of yards on our opponents, and set statistical records - not with the final scores, though.

It's a mental thing.

Commentator says Washington has no respect for the "speed" of byu. Funniest thing I have heard all day

It is ridiculous for a team to be out gaining the opposition by over 100 yards, be winning the turn over battle as well, but be losing by 12 points. 4 times settling for field goals instead of touchdowns, and missing one of those to boot...typical of BYU all year long.

Hill is an amazing athlete, but when your quarterback has more carries than the rest of the team combined, there is a huge problem.

Anae has got to go.
This is just scatter-brained offensive football.

Riverton, UT

I guess UW is not worried about losing, even with a 2-score difference as their freshman QB is in the game trying to throw the ball and finally earned himself a first down conversion. This could not be more pathetic performance on offense and special teams. What do we do when we are down 12 points? Run up the middle! What if that doesn't work? Run up the middle faster so we can...PUNT! And then our punter is only able to muster 30 yards? What happened to the TE play? What about trying to be more creative with the play calling? What happened to proper execution? Hope these guys did well on their final exams because they certainly did not prepare very well for this game.

Riverton, UT

It is really difficult to figure out what is going on when trying to follow the game online...a very frustrating experience indeed! ESPN updates with "Hoffman passes incomplete to Hoffman" and I just am utterly confused. I wish the seniors well in their future endeavors! Hoffman and Van Noy will be great to watch in the NFL!

Hyrum, UT

With a terrible punting game, and having gone for it on 4th and 2 earlier from our own 20, why on earth would we not again go for it on 4th and 2 from midfield in the 4th quarter and down by 2 scores? Then we get another terrible punt... 8 yards.

Without question, it was 1) terrible special teams play, and 2) bad play calling that cost us this game. Another shoulda, coulda, woulda game for BYU.

BYU gets Pac-12ed.

0-2 vs Pac-12 this year (lost to a 5-4 Wash and 2-7 Utah team)

Bountiful, UT

These PAC 12 teams are tough!!

Centerville, UT

BYU football just kind of reminds me of Carlton on the Fresh Prince of Bel Air. They dress well. They speak well. But they are hard to take seriously as a big time football program. They also need to lose the gimmicks like the three-point stance on the sideline and all the slogans.

We proved tonight that if we were in the PAC 12 we would win it.

It almost seems like Taysom is the only offensive player who really wants to win. There are way too many dropped passes and holding calls. Next year should be better, but BYU was not prepared for this game.

Hill is amazing. He needs a lot more help though.


Most everyone complained about Bronco's cavalier attitude about game preparation. Looks like the fans know better than the coaches. If you have 15 allowed practices and you take 6 you can expect to be rusty, drop passes, not be able to cover kickoffs, and generally look too tired to get after their quarterback.

I've been an athlete. I know that I can get out of shape in 1 week and it takes two to get back in shape. If they took off two weeks, the got out of shape and rusty. Shame on the coaches.
