BYU report card

Offense

Grade A

Not only did BYU manage to rack up offensive numbers like a gasoline pump filling up an SUV, the Cougars didn't waste one scoring opportunity.


Defense

Grade A

When your opponent puts a zero on the scoreboard, has just nine yards rushing and advances inside the 20-yard line only once, the defense is doing its job.


Special teams

Grade B+

When kickoffs keep flying deep into the end zone, they're doing half of their job. But when they allow 151 return yards, they're not. But they did force a fumble and block a field goal.


Overall

Grade A

The Cougars put the Bruins on their heels with a near-perfect opening drive, then piled it on from there. Anyone who doubted how good BYU is should have no doubt now.
