Arizona native Ashley Hatch and former Bountiful High star Elena Medeiros arrived at BYU from different places, but the two roommates had the same goals: Win a West Coast Conference title. Advance in the NCAA tournament.

BYU coach Kalani Sitake says quarterback Taysom Hill is getting more comfortable in trusting his foot he injured in the first game last season. If Hill is back to his old self, then BYU's offense needs to revolve his dynamic running ability.
BYU freshman Aleva Hifo made his presence known Saturday in the Cougars’ 35-32 loss to West Virginia, catching four of Taysom Hill’s 23 passes for 26 yards and also returning two kick returns 64 yards in the early kickoff on the east coast.
With three straight losses by a total of seven points, it might be easy to expect BYU football players to get down on themselves or point fingers at a tough schedule that has gotten the best of them. But that is far from the case.
The Utes are rising, the Cougars are 1-3, and Utah State suffered a head-scratching loss to Air Force in the Aggies’ Mountain West opener. Christian Cox and David Nixon are back to break it all down in studio.
Whether your agree that the problem with BYU’s woes through the first four games of the 2016 season falls on the shoulders of Taysom Hill, even the fifth-year senior can acknowledge his share of blame. Now is about fixing the Cougars' woes.
