  11/21/20 - Tyler AllgeierSo/2023, Brigham Young, 5-11, 220 (DS#30 RB) + More +

  Tyler Allgeier ran for a career-high 141 yards and two touchdowns and No. 8 BYU routed overmatched North Alabama 66-14 on Saturday to improve to 9-0. Allgeier had his fourth 100-yard game of the season. Zach Wilson threw for 212 yards and four touchdowns before halftime and added 33 yards rushing. He had a season-high 256.3 QB rating. BYU scored touchdowns on all six first-half drives. The Cougars rolled up 394 total yards and averaged 11.3 yards per play before halftime.

Rett Files threw for 198 yards and a touchdown for the Lions (0-4). Files played during the second and fourth quarters while starting quarterback Blake Dever took snaps in the first and third quarters. Dever threw for 107 yards. Wilson hit Gunner Romney with a 50-yard pass in double coverage on the Cougars' first play from scrimmage to set up a 2-yard scoring toss to Isaac Rex that put BYU up 7-0. Allgeier scored on 2-yard runs on each of BYU's next two drives. His longest run of the day, a 39-yard sprint down the sideline, set up a 19-yard pass from Wilson to Neil Pau'u on the next play that gave the Cougars a four-touchdown lead. - BYU/AP College Football

  Once BYU junior quarterback Zach Wilson got clicking, the Cougars were almost unstoppable. "They came out with a good scheme and made some plays," Wilson said. "We had to adjust. That was the biggest thing. It was a lack of capitalizing. I really don't think it was anything we did but we adjusted to what they were doing. We decided to stretch the field a little more and I think that was really when it changed. We really put it in the receivers hands to go win down the field and they did a great job." BYU scored touchdowns on six of seven possessions, with the only exception being when time ran out at the end of the first half.

Wilson twice hit freshman tight end Isaac Rex (five and 20 yards) on TD passes and scored once on a four-yard run, while junior wide receiver Neil Pau'u (one yard), junior running back Lopini Katoa (20 yards) and Allgeier (two yards) also carried the ball into the end zone. The Cougars wracked up 573 yards of total offense (214 rushing, 359 passing) while holding the Broncos to just 310 total yards (61 rushing, 249 passing). "We're a good team," Wilson said. "People still doubted us and I really don't blame them for that. It's hard to tell with how our season has been switched up but each week is another opportunity to keep proving ourselves. This was a big one for us. These guys don't like to lose at home. To come out with a win like that was huge - but it means nothing unless we keep winning." - Daily Herald

  Zach Wilson threw for 359 yards and two touchdowns and Tyler Allgeier rushed for 123 yards and a pair of scores as No. 9 BYU routed No. 21 Boise State 51-17 on Friday night. BYU (8-0), which beat Boise State on the road for the first time in six tries, is off to its best start since 2001 when the Cougars started 12-0. Boise State (2-1) suffered its worst loss since a 64-19 rout by rival Idaho in 1996, the Broncos first year as an FBS program. Boise State lost the 1997 season opener to Cal State Northridge by 40 at home but that game was later forfeited to the Broncos.

Wilson, who originally committed to Boise State before signing with BYU, completed 21-of-27 passes and threw TDs of 5 and 20 yards. He also found the end zone on a 4-yard run. The game appeared like it might turn into a shootout early with both teams trading scores in the first quarter. But BYU took control after Boise State quarterback Jack Sears left with what appeared to be a concussion in the first quarter and never returned. The Broncos’ offense never returned either as BYU took control in the third quarter. - AP College Football

  Zach Wilson threw for 224 yards and three touchdowns and ran for 35 yards and another score to help No. 11 BYU rout Western Kentucky 41-10 on Saturday night. BYU (7-0) is off to its best start since 2001 when the Cougars won their first 12 games in Gary Crowton's debut season. Tyler Allgeier ran for 95 yards and a touchdown for BYU. Tyrell Pigrome threw for 106 yards and a touchdown for the Hilltoppers (2-5). Gaej Walker added 75 yards on the ground. Western Kentucky has not scored more than 14 points in each of its last four games.

BYU scored touchdowns on all five of its first-half drives. The Cougars repeatedly gashed Western Kentucky on one big play after another in the half. Dax Milne's diving one-hand catch for a 38-yard gain set up a 2-yard touchdown run from Allgeier that capped BYU's opening drive. Then, Allgeier galloped 32 yards down the sideline to set up a 23-yard pass from Wilson to Milne one play later that made it 14-3. Isaiah Kaufusi forced and recovered a fumble from Walker at the Western 39 in the waning seconds of the first quarter to set up BYU's third touchdown on a 5-yard run from Wilson. - BYU/AP College Football

  Kaufusi believes that the time he spent during the COVID-19 pandemic quarantine helped lay the groundwork for him to be a better player this year. "I really had to dig deep and decide who I wanted to be and how quarantine would affect me," Kaufusi said. "My mentality switched and I worked really hard. I just wanted to become better in all aspects of the game and quarantine was a huge blessing for me. I got my body feeling really good. The process was putting in work every single day. Nobody was watching and here the fruits of my labor are coming through." Kaufusi said getting in the end zone was even more special to be able to make that play in the first game of 2020 where fans were allowed to watch a game in Provo, which meant his family was there to see it. "It's a great feeling to do it in front of my family who was in attendance," Kaufusi said. "To have that pick-6 in LaVell Edwards Stadium will be a memory I will cherish forever. I am really pumped about it." - Daily Herald

  Zach Wilson threw for 287 yards and four touchdowns to lead No. 12 BYU to a 52-14 victory over Texas State on Saturday night. Tyler Allgeier added 77 yards and a touchdown on the ground for the Cougars. BYU (6-0) piled up 579 total yards and 30 first downs on its way to matching the team’s best start since 2008. Fourteen different players caught a pass for the Cougars and 11 had at least one carry. Brady McBride threw for 150 yards and two touchdowns with two interceptions for the Bobcats. Texas State (1-6) fell to 0-9 against AP Top 25 teams after being held to 267 yards. McBride completed all five of his passes on Texas State’s opening drive, culminating in a wide-open 19-yard touchdown throw to Marcell Barbee, to briefly put the Bobcats ahead 7-0. Wilson matched that efficiency on BYU’s opening drive, completing all five of his passes and tacking on a pair of quarterback runs. The second one, a 10-yard sprint, helped set up a 4-yard scoring run by Lopini Katoa that tied it at 7. Once Wilson warmed up, he and the rest of the BYU offense did not cool back down. - BYU/AP College Football

  Wilson accounted for 440 of BYU's 478 yards of total offense. The more I watch him play, the more he reminds me of John Beck during his senior season in 2006. That's no coincidence: As ESPN announcers keep reminding us, Wilson trained with Beck and 3DQB during the summer. Wilson even looks a lot like Beck when he throws, from the occasional odd arm angle to the flick of the wrist of his powerful arm to throw the ball on a rope. Wilson is 107 of 136 (78.7%) for 1,641 yards, 12 touchdowns and one interception. His efficiency rating of 207.68 is No. 2 in the country. ESPN ran a graphic Saturday night listing Wilson as a Heisman candidate. - Daily Herald

  Despite being behind going at halftime and at the end of the third quarter, No. 13/14 BYU put up 29 unanswered points in the second half to defeat Houston 43-26 on Friday night at TDECU Stadium. Quarterback Zach Wilson and wide receiver Dax Milne led the charge on the offense with both recording career high games. Milne boasted a career-best 184 receiving yards as well as career highs in receptions with nine and touchdowns with three. The wideout averaged 20.4 yards a catch with a career-long 78-yard touchdown reception on BYU’s first offensive play and an 18-yard score that iced the win. Wilson went 25-for-35 on the night with his first career 400-yard passing game, finishing with exaclty 400 yards and four touchdowns. The junior also led all rushers with nine attempts for 40 yards with a long rush of 32 yards. Isaiah Kaufusi and Keenan Pili led the Cougars on defense, both totaling eight tackles and one tackle for loss each. Zac Dawe added three tackles for loss, including one sack, while Tyler Batty recorded 1.5 tackles for loss. - BYU Football

  BYU has started the 2020 season 4-0, which is the first 4-0 start since the 2014 season. The Cougars have not started 5-0 since the 2008 season when they won their first six games of the year. This is also the best start under head coach Kalani Sitake. The previous best was in 2018 when BYU started 3-1. BYU had a 100-yard rusher and 100-yard receiver for the second time this season. Wide receiver Dax Milne had seven catches for 102 receiving yards against the Roadrunners, while Tyler Allgeier ended up with 116 yards on 19 carries with a touchdown. - Daily Herald

  BYU linebackers coach Ed Lamb felt like senior linebacker Isaiah Kaufusi had one of his best games during the 27-20 Cougar win over UTSA at LaVell Edwards Stadium on Saturday. "I thought he played with his hair on fire," Lamb said on the Coordinator's Corner show on Monday. "Where he elevated his play in this last game that I have not seen him do before is his contact courage. He completely flew by one of the pulling offensive linemen and took down the running back. I thought he inspired the guys to hang in there and keep adjusting. He is a valuable, valuable leader for us."

It's often when things aren't going well or when a team isn't performing at the highest level that leaders are needed the most. That is why this is a big time for the BYU team leaders both during Saturday's closer-than-expected victory and also now preparing to head on the road for a big test at Houston on Friday night (7:30 p.m MT, ESPN). "I think it is important as a leader to keep the guys level-headed, even when the emotions are high in a game," Cougar senior safety Troy Warner said during Monday's press conference. "It's important to keep our heads in it, help them not to dwell on it. It's about what they can do to be better. We dealt with some adversity during that game but I'm glad we were able to grind out the win." - Daily Herald

  Zach Wilson threw for 292 yards and two touchdowns and Tyler Allgeier rushed 116 yards and another score to lead No. 15 BYU past UTSA 27-20 on Saturday. The Cougars (4-0) equaled their best start since 2014 while rolling up 472 yards. Allgeier posted his second 100-yard game of his career to help rescue an inconsistent BYU offense. Lowell Narcisse threw for 229 yards and two touchdowns – all after halftime – on 17-of-20 passing to lead the Roadrunners. UTSA (3-2) became the first opponent to give BYU a four-quarter test, but fell short of earning the upset, despite averaging 7.6 yards per play in the second half.

BYU trailed for the first time this season when UTSA took a 3-0 lead on a 39-yard field goal from Hunter Duplessis in the first quarter. The Cougars, who came in averaging 49 points per game, short circuited a couple of times in the opening quarter, fumbling at the UTSA 10 and failing to convert on fourth-and-6 from the Roadrunner 40. It was first quarter this season that BYU did not score a touchdown. - BYU/AP College Football

  Cougar quarterback Zach Wilson had another tremendous performance, going 24-of-26 for 325 yards passing with two touchdowns and no interceptions. He also had 43 yards rushing on eight carries with three scores. "He ran the ball well," Sitake said. "We've been really excited to get Zach going. We've seen him do it in spurts. We know that when you have a guy with a great work ethic who is willing to sacrifice a lot for his teammates, it becomes natural for everyone to want to follow him. Eventually it is going to pay off. I'm really happy with what Zach did."

Wilson started the game with 12 straight completions before having a pass fall to the ground and when he got locked in, he was placing the ball flawlessly. "It's satisfying to see guys make plays," Wilson said. "I feel like the work we put in the offseason, the practices leading up to the game, the talk back and forth of where I'm going to go against which defense, I feel like we were on the same page all night. We were having a strong connection and guys were just making plays. I was just putting the ball up there, letting guys go make plays and they were getting it done." - Daily Herald
