BYU Football 2014 Pre-Fall Camp Season Preview

Yes, I know what you’re thinking. I’m alive, for one. And two, active as a writer for TornBySports yet again. The fact is, I never left. There’s nothing like another approaching season of college football to bust you out of a long writing slump. That and there’s no baseball right now during this All-Star break. It’s nice having the Mariners be relevant again. With the...

BYU loses 31-16 to Washington in Fight Hunger Bowl

When Washington started crowding the line of scrimmage in the second half, BYU had no answer. Taysom Hill and the Cougars were held scoreless for the final two quarters by the Huskies' aggressive defense, and BYU had its four-game bowl winning streak snapped with a 31-16 loss in the Fight Hunger Bowl on Friday night. ''They started bringing their safeties down,'...

Sorry, Taysom. Fight Hunger Bowl is not just another game.

I love Taysom Hill. A lot. But if he thinks that tomorrow’s bowl game against the University of Washington is just another game, he’s got another thing coming. I’m referring to Hill’s comments, reported by Jeff Call at Deseret News, that Hill is treating this game like every other game: Especially being an independent, we’re playing different conferences all the time, so...

Taysom Not Tired, Continues to Improve

Taysom Hill looks for an open receiver against Boise State Friday. Tired? Not Taysom. With a short week to prepare after getting banged up in a fast-paced shootout against Houston last week, BYU quarterback Taysom Hill had every reason to come out of the gates slow. Just 6 days before, he had run an FBS-record 115 plays and was sacked 8 times. And yet, against Boise State under the...

Hill leads BYU past Boise State

BYU frustrated Boise State drive after drive. The Cougars broke up passes, stuffed runners on key downs, and created turnovers - a lot of turnovers. BYU forced four turnovers, three on consecutive Broncos drives in the second-half, in its 37-20 victory Friday night.

BYU Waste No Time in Accepting Bowl Bid

College football is no longer just for Saturdays anymore. Now we have games on Tuesday, Thursday, and Fridays. With the NFL playing on Sunday and Monday the NCAA stays away from those two days so you have to think that Wednesdays are not far behind.

BYU, Boise St not expecting defenses to rule again

Defense ruled the day when Boise State and BYU played a year ago. Both teams have good reason to expect a much different story this time around.

Boise State tallied 557 yards of total offense -led by a career-high 222 yards and three touchdowns from sophomore RB Jay Ajayi - in a 34-17...

BYU takes down undefeated Houston with interceptions and historic game from Hill

Game day grades: BYU vs. Georgia Tech

The Cougars faced a very solid Yellow Jacket defense that was ranked 20th in the nation, but that didn't stop the Cougar offense from having a very productive outing.
