Hill providing thrills for BYU fans

Posted Oct 30th - 2:26pm by Greg Wrubell

If the the question from national college football commentator Tony Barnhart was unexpected, BYU quarterback Taysom Hill didn't let it faze him.

"What do you think about throwing your name in the Heisman Trophy (mix)?" Barnhart asked during Hill's Tuesday interview appearance on CBS Sports Network. "Are you a contender?"

Moments before, Barnhart referenced Hill's "coming-out party" against Texas, when the BYU sophomore accounted for almost 400 yards of total offense in leading the Cougars to a 40-21 win over the Longhorns. Hill's 259 rushing yards that night rank second all-time at BYU, and the team's 550 rush yards represented a BYU record and the most ever allowed by Texas in a single game.

The Cougars are flying high into the bye week

Posted Oct 28th - 7:25pm by Jason Shepherd

PROVO — As BYU begins its second bye week of the season, Head Coach Bronco Mendenhall couldn't help but reflect on the Cougars' impressive win this past Friday against Boise State.

"After the film and watching Boise State, a really good football game. Offensively, defensively we continue to gain momentum. I think our team is improving, I think they're more optimistic than ever. The bye week comes at a really good time to heal. (It's) nice to get a few extra days looking at Wisconsin. We're looking forward to a great game in Madison, on a big stage in front of a lot of people."

After Friday's win over the Broncos, Coach Mendenhall wasn't sure how he would structure practices during the bye week. Today, he revealed that it will be a mixture of getting healthy and getting ready for the Badgers.

BYU picked 2nd in WCC hoops title chase; Haws named all-league

Posted Oct 24th - 1:53pm by Greg Wrubell

Perennial powerhouse Gonzaga is the favorite to win the West Coast Conference regular season championship in a preseason poll of the league's ten coaches, released on Wednesday at the WCC Tipoff event in Los Angeles.

The Zags captured eight of 10 first-place votes, with second-place BYU and third-place Saint Mary's each getting a single first-place tally. The third-through-sixth place teams were separated by a total of seven poll points.

BYU's Tyler Haws was the lone Cougar selected to the ten-player All-WCC team; Gonzaga, Saint Mary's and San Francisco each had two players selected.

BYU wins Cougar Tipoff

Posted Oct 23rd - 11:59pm by Jason Ludlow, Contributor

PROVO — The new guys may have received most the off-season buzz, but it was the old vets who stole the show at BYU men's basketball's annual Cougar Tipoff Wednesday night at the Marriott Center.

Junior guards Matt Carlino and Tyler Haws lit up the scoreboard for 28 and 31 points respectively, showing potential for a high-scoring offense this upcoming season.

"I'm really pleased with the effort of the guys, and we saw a lot of good things in the scrimmage," said head coach Dave Rose during post-scrimmage interviews. "I think there's a lot of things to improve on, but all in all, I'm pretty pleased with the guys tonight for their effort."

BYU Football with Bronco Mendenhall 10-22-13

Posted Oct 23rd - 11:07am by Reggie Lewis, Contributor

PROVO — Coming off one of the most wild, thrilling games in the Bronco Mendenhall era, the Cougars look to avenge last season's 7-6 heartbreaker to Boise State this Friday at LaVell Edwards Stadium. Coach Mendenhall is still "recovering" from the Cougars 47-46 victory over Houston Saturday at Reliant Stadium. The game featured multiple lead changes, three turnovers for each team, and a last-minute drive that resulted in a touchdown from Taysom Hill to Skyler Ridley.

"At this point, I remember two plays" said Mendenhall. "I remember the pass to Skyler Ridley for the touchdown and the interception by Alani Fua."

Even though the Cougars were outscored 38-34 in the first half, they were able to hold Houston to eight points in the second half and pull out a rare win in the Bronco-era when trailing after halftime and the third quarter. BYU is 6-20 when having trailed at halftime and after three quarters, but is 4-4 in the last eight such games.

Healthy DB Bills ready for challenge of Boise State

Posted Oct 22nd - 9:33pm by Sean Walker, Contributor

PROVO — When the Cougars found themselves in a shootout at Houston, it would have been natural to drift to thoughts of a gallant return for one of BYU's top defensive backs, Craig Bills.

But the Timpview High School product wasn't phased. He trusted his teammates to get the job done, and he had faith in them.

Besides, it was his call to sit out Oct. 19 at Reliant Stadium.

BYU faces Boise State, 'great opportunity' on Friday night

Posted Oct 21st - 9:50pm by Greg Wrubell

Six days after beating Houston in a first-ever meeting with that school, BYU welcomes Boise State to Provo on Friday, with the Cougars seeking a first-ever win over the visitors from Idaho.

The Broncos have won the first three meetings in a series that has stretched over 10 years, with Boise State walking away with a 2003 blowout at LaVell Edwards Stadium, then capturing blue-turf nail-biters in 2004 and 2012.

Last year's game featured BYU blanking the Boise State offense, yet the Broncos earned a 7-6 win on the strength of an interception return for touchdown. Taysom Hill came off the bench in relief of an injured Riley Nelson and led the Cougars to their only touchdown late in the fourth quarter; a missed two-point conversion ended BYU's comeback hopes.

PROVO — There's no place like home, but for BYU, it's time to get back on the road again.

The Cougars stung the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets last Saturday at LaVell Edwards Stadium for a dominant 38-20 Homecoming victory. The win also concluded a five-game streak of games played within the state of Utah -- four at home (Texas, Utah, Middle Tennessee, and Georgia Tech) with a road victory over Utah State in the middle. BYU will return to the road to face the Houston Cougars this Saturday at Reliant Stadium, the home of the NFL's Houston Texans.

Even though Georgia Tech's triple-option attack contrasts from most offenses BYU will face this season, head coach Bronco Mendenhall said at his weekly "BYU Football with Coach Mendenhall" radio show tonight that it was still a strong victory that will benefit the team this week and throughout the season.

Shutdown defense a point of pride for BYU linebackers

Posted Oct 16th - 7:59pm by Sean Walker, Contributor

PROVO — Kyle Van Noy came into the 2013 BYU football season with loads of hype, a preseason All-American status, and having passed on a nearly assured first-round NFL draft potential.

Halfway into the year, Van Noy has lived up to the hype with BYU's defense, with 40 tackles, 10 tackles for loss, four sacks, 10 quarterback hurries and one interception a pick-six on the first play of the game at Utah State.

But what's most important to the senior from Reno, Nev., is that his fellow linebackers have risen to the same level, having scored defensive touchdowns in three straight games.

BYU's Rose continues preseason preparations; 'I feel better every day'

Posted Oct 16th - 6:07pm by Greg Wrubell

A little more than five weeks after a second surgery to remove cancerous tissue, BYU Basketball head coach Dave Rose says "I feel good...I feel better every day."

"Each week," said Rose after a late-afternoon practice at the Marriott Center on Wednesday, "I can tell that things are better."

"I'm kind of just concentrating on this team, and the team itself--you can really tell that they're young."
