After a missed field goal by Boise State, the Cougars scored on their next two possessions, both touchdown passes to Matt Bushman.
The Broncos scored a touchdown, and a two-point conversion on the ensuing drive to cut into the BYU lead.
Late in the fourth quarter, Boise State drove 79 yards to score another touchdown, giving the Cougars a slim three-point lead.

Did our corner really just taunt that receiver for dropping a wide open pass when he was nowhere to be found? 🤔— Jonny Linehan (@jlinehan9) October 20, 2019

Why not use the TOs in that situation? You can't take them with you and unless you get a really big return, do you really want your freshman QB trying to do too much in the final 33 seconds of the first half?— Jared Lloyd (@JaredrLloyd) October 20, 2019
byu might be the most confusing team in the country— ً (@ConleyWRLD) October 20, 2019
Dayan is an NFL guy. No doubt in my mind. Love the way he plays the game. An absolute baller and awesome teammate!— Jonny Linehan (@jlinehan9) October 20, 2019
Is it bad that after every third down stop I don’t celebrate until I’m 100% positive there wasn’t a BYU penalty to negate it? Haha— Daniel (@D_hyer98) October 20, 2019

Why can't BYU ever be consistent?
How did Vegas know Boise State's backup quarterback would suck this bad?
