The 2012 season has reached the midway point for the Brigham Young Cougars. There have been many great moments and some not so good moments in these first six games. As part of BLUE COUGAR FOOTBALL’s mid-season evaluation, here is a look at the front runners for the awards that will be given at the end of the season. Each award has three nominees (except Team MVP). The first five awards are for an individual player.

Taysom Hill had an incredible final 30 seconds of the first half against Utah State. At the end of the game, another 30 seconds were the exact opposite. BYU received the ball from Utah State on a punt with about a half-minute to go...
The Cougar offense has been in flux with the rotation of quarterbacks Riley Nelson and Taysom Hill the past few weeks. With Nelson returning this week, how might the Cougars have a better chance to win against Oregon State?
Following Taysom Hill’s injury late in the Utah State game, the Cougars won’t be able to call on him the rest of this season. It’s very disappointing to offensive coordinator and quarterback coach Brandon Doman, especially since Hill got injured because of a miscommunication before a play in which he was supposed to take a knee.
