BRIGHAM YOUNG RUMORS

BYU football: Cougars will challenge Memphis' defense in Miami Beach Bowl

Miami • If a bowl game is played at noon MST on a Monday while most people are at work or out Christmas shopping, is it still considered a meaningful postseason football contest? To the BYU Cougars and Memphis Tigers, it sure is. At least, that’s what players and coaches in both shades of blue are saying, describing Monday’s inaugural Miami Beach Bowl at Marlins Park as hugely...

BYU basketball: Cougars hold off Stanford, 79-77

Provo • At practice Friday afternoon, Tyler Haws surprised his coach by playing through the pain of an ankle he badly sprained less than a week before. On Saturday night, Haws simply did the kind of things everyone has come to expect. The senior BYU guard, and the nation’s third leading scorer, went for 24 to lead the Cougars to a 79-77 win over the visiting Stanford Cardinal...

BYU football: Kaufusi will play where he's most effective in bowl game

Miami • There were a lot of reasons why BYU struggled on defense in October, but one of the most visible was the lack of a bonafide pass rush.

The Cougars solved that, partly, by acknowledging that linebacker Bronson...

BYU basketball: Haws' status uncertain for Stanford

Provo - Tyler Haws ran to the right corner, caught a cross-court pass and fired up a three-ball that splashed the net. But will one of college basketball’s best scorers be doing the same thing at the Marriott Center on Saturday night when BYU hosts the Stanford Cardinal? To be determined, Cougars coach Dave Rose said. Less than a week after badly spraining his ankle against Weber...

BYU football: Special teams the focus at Cougars hit Miami

Miami • As they approach their 10th straight appearance in a bowl game, the BYU Cougars are doing everything they possibly can to ensure that history doesn't repeat itself. That's the Captain Obvious statement of the day, because BYU was soundly defeated 31-16 by Washington in last year's Fight Hunger Bowl across the country in San Francisco. But there's more to it than that: the...

The game itself is up in the air, but there is one fact that doesn’t change: There is only one spot. None of the preseason top 25 teams according to the USA Today media poll were from one of the...

Lions trade up to draft OLB Kyle Van Noy out of BYU

The Lions finally made some sort of splash on the second day of the NFL Draft trading up to the 40th pick with the Seahawks to take OLB Kyle Van Noy out of Brigham Young University. Van Noy offers tremendous versatility for the Lions as he’s able to play near the line of scrimmage, rush the quarterback off the edges and be a guy that can drop back into pass coverage. Bottom line...
