Dallas • Spend any time around the BYU football program, and you will learn about the team’s “pillars” as it goes into every game.
“Score at least 24 points and keep our opponent from scoring 24 points,” said running back JJ Di Luigi. “Our magic formula.”
It worked again Friday, as BYU took a 24-21 win over Tulsa in the Armed Forces Bowl.
The Cougars also believe if they can hold their opponents to fewer than 100 rushing yards, they will win.
Tulsa had just 37 rushing yards, on 27 attempts.

SPOKANE – The season was just six games old, but Abe Lodwick sensed that his Washington State basketball team was flirting with disaster.
