PROVO, Utah (November 19, 2007) -- Sophomore quarterback Max Hall totaled 331 yards passing on 26-of-37 attempts and was credited with three touchdown completions in BYU's 35-10 victory over Wyoming on Saturday. The win helped secure at least a share of the Cougars' second-straight Mountain West Conference title.
The 6-foot-1, 200-pound native of Mesa, Ariz., eclipsed the 3,000-yard mark during Saturday's game to become the Mountain West Conference's all-time sophomore passing leader, breaking Wyoming's Casey Bramlet's previous mark of 3,069 yards. Hall set the record on a 10-yard touchdown completion to Michael Reed to give BYU a 28-3 lead with 10:46 left in the third quarter. With 3,121 yards on the season, Hall is the nation's top sophomore quarterback.
Hall finished the day completing over 70 percent of his attempts and was credited with three touchdown completions, including a three-yard completion to Matt Allen in the second quarter that would prove to be the game-winning touchdown. After taking a 35-10 lead with 11:42 left in the fourth quarter, Hall did not play the remainder of the game. His 331-yard outing was the first time this season Wyoming had allowed an opponent to pass for over 300 yards.
Comparing Hall to BYU's Quarterback Factory, he ranks third behind Ty Detmer and Robbie Bosco with 3,121 yards and 21 touchdown completions through his first 10 games as a starter. Detmer posted 3,868 yards and 26 touchdowns in his first 10 games while Bosco, who went 10-0 in his first 10 games, racked up 3,170 yards and 29 touchdowns.
