BYU running back Squally Canada turned the tables on Boney Fuller this week.

Boney Fuller has provided hours of entertainment on Twitter over the years, poking fun at BYU opponents — many of whom laughed with his jokes and even retweeted him.

On Thursday, Boney was on the receiving end of a burn.

A humorous exchange began with BYU running back Squally Canada tweeting out a photo of himself in his No. 22 Cougar uniform and declaring, "I ain't looking for no handouts."

Boney then quote-tweeted Canada, joking, "Your job on the team is literally to get handed things."

Canada then cleverly crafted a Fuller-esque response, taking screenshots of the definitions of "handout" and "handoff." Handout is a noun that means "something given free to a needy person or organization," but handoff is an American football noun that denotes "an exchange made by handing the ball to a teammate."

Never one to shy away from Twitter fun, former Cougar punter Jonny Linehan then added, "Squally coming at Boney with that BYU education! Too much sauce bro!"

We're gonna have to give this round to the modern-day BYU football players. For the record, the good-natured Fuller — who, we found out, is actually a couple of BYU fans — was a good sport about it, too. Boney's account liked Canada's tweet throwdown.

During the discussion, Linehan divulged that he was not invited to the NFL Combine but will get a chance to prove his worth — on the football field, not on Twitter — at an upcoming Pro Day at BYU.

"It’s been fun training and preparing no matter what happens!" Linehan wrote.

National champions

The Snow College cheer team recently won the Ephraim school's first national title at the USA Collegiate National Championships in Anaheim, California, which on its own is awesome for the junior college. Judges gave the Badgers' squad, which included 12 women and four men, perfect scores in the preliminary round and in the finals.

The story gets better.

While en route to Southern California for the competition, the Snow College team's flight from the Provo airport was delayed and delayed and ... delayed. The Badgers waited in the airport for 10 hours before finally getting canceled.

That didn't stop this determined squad. Coach Kaylie Bailey rented vans from around Utah County, and Snow's team drove all night before finally arriving at Anaheim at 4 a.m. on the opening day of the competition. The Badgers also had to switch up their routine after one of their cheerleaders suffered a broken ankle three days prior to the event.

"We had to overcome a few challenges just to even make it to Anaheim, but it was such an amazing experience," head coach Bailey said. "I couldn't be more pleased with the way this team came together and put together two perfect performances. It was just so amazing."

There's a reason why the new Zions Bank Real Academy in Herriman is so colorful.
