BYU paces another 600-yard attack night, with 306 yards during the first two quarters. Zach Wilson was exceptional, completing 18 of 19 passes for 236 yards and two touchdowns while also lunting 28 yards and another point.

In the final drive for La Tech in the half, Tyler Batty came up with two bags to help the Cougars out. BYU has carried the Bulldogs to 164 yards and 2 of 7 in the third touchdown so far, with the Cougars playing well again on either side of the ball.

Cougar crime only cemented itself once, walking 80 yards in five plays and it took just 37 seconds of an hour to make a 3-point lead when Zach Wilson hit Gunner Romney for a 22-yard pass. Simply impressive.

Wilson completed four straight passes and ran 15 yards on the landing gear.

BYU is back on the front with Zach Wilson driving a 58-yard, six-game engine, and capping a beautiful downward pass to Carter Witt’s end for a 22-yard score. Wilson is a 10 out of 10 and has passed 122 yards so far, and has lunted 13 yards.

Cougars had only a third down on the drive, leading to a third shift and 3 with the Tyler Allgeier running 6 yards long to set up a TD pass in the next play.

End of the first quarter

BYU 7, Louisiana Tech 7

BYU will be doing the chase to start the second quarter and has been outdid since it made a 7-0 early lead. The La Tech defense, in particular, has stood proudly at the last two Cougar leads and has held BYU to 1 out of 3 in third place so far.

2:26, ​​first quarter

BYU 7, Louisiana Tech 7

Troy Warner stops a promising La Tech drive, and intercepts Luke Anthony on a long pass by BYU 21. Warner went high above the receiver to carry in picking – the Cougars’ first intercept of the year – on a lane that floated slightly in the air. This came after the Cougar’s attack was halted, as she was late to the fourth play near the midfield on the Bulldog side of the field to give a no tack position on the field.

So far, this is BYU’s narrowest game this season. Presently, the Bulldogs have 110 yards of gross crime to 108 for Cougars.

BYU 7, Louisiana Tech 7

BYU’s defense has a rare disappointment, as Louisiana Tech responds to Cougar’s landing with one of them. The Bulldogs scored on a 66-yard pass from Luke Anthony to Smoke Harris making many BYU defenders miss, a game of tie.

The BYU offside penalty spent an intercept in third down the drive earlier.

10:02, first quarter

BYU 7, Louisiana Tech 0

BYU hits first, with Cougars going 78 yards in only six plays in his inaugural drive to score Zach Wilson’s 9 yard race. A 39-yard pass to Dax Milne, after 16 yards to Gunner Romney, put the Cougars in the center of scoring, and Wilson had a strong start.

Meanwhile, the BYU defense imposes a kick to the Bulldogs’ opening road after La Tech picks up 18 yards.
