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.

At the time, BYU and La. Tech were tied at 7-7.

Following the pick, the senior defensive back’s older brother, former BYU star and current San Francisco 49ers linebacker Fred Warner posted about his younger brother’s big play.

Warner entered the game against Lousiana Tech with three tackles, including one solo tackle, in BYU’s first two games this season.

The game between La. Tech and BYU is broadcast on ESPN2 and KSL NewsRadio 1160 AM and 102.7 FM.
