SALT LAKE CITY – BYU wide receiver Puka Nacua played the ball perfectly to snag his second score against the Georgia Southern Eagles.

The Eagles hosted the No. 14 Cougars at Allen E. Paulson Stadium in Statesboro, Georgia on Saturday, November 20.

With 10:38 left in the fourth quarter, Hall unloaded a 29-yard toss towards the end zone.

Nacua played the play and grabbed the pigskin from in front of a Georgia Southern defender. The catch gave Nacua his second touchdown catch of the contest and put BYU up, 34-17.

The score capped a six-play, 75-yard drive that lasted 3:01.

After the throw, Hall was 17/28 passing for 312 yards and two touchdowns.

Nacua had five catches for 83 yards and two touchdowns.

The Cougars’ drive began when Hall found Puka’s older brother, Samson, for 29 yards. After the elder Nacua’s reception, a Georgia Southern player shoved the BYU receiver. Both players were penalized after the play.

BYU’s game against Georgia Southern is broadcast on ESPN+ and KSL NewsRadio (102.7 FM and 1160 AM).
