SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – BYU defensive back Troy Warner snagged his first career interception during the first quarter of the Cougars’ game against Louisiana Tech.
The No. 22 ranked Cougars hosted the Bulldogs at LaVell Edwards Stadium on Friday, October 2.
Shortly after BYU failed to convert a fourth down play and turned the ball over on downs, Warner got the ball back for the Cougars with a leaping interception over a Bulldog receiver.
The pick was Warner’s first during his time at BYU. It was also the first interception by the Cougars’ defense this season.
Warner’s interception gave the Cougars the ball at their own 21-yard line with 2:26 left in the opening quarter of play.
