TAMPA – BYU quarterback Jaren Hall found a wide-open Keanu Hill in the end zone for a touchdown to extend the Cougars’ lead against the USF Bulls.

The Bulls hosted the Cougars at Raymond James Stadium, the home of the NFL’s Tampa Bay Buccaneers, on Saturday, September 3.

With 4:00 remaining in the first quarter, Hall threw a 21-yard toss into the far corner of the end zone and into the hands of an open Hill.

The score stretched BYU’s lead to 28-0.

Hall’s throw to Hill was set up by a 40 yard burst by BYU running back Christopher Brooks on the previous play.

Following the touchdown, Hall was 6/7 passing for 74 yards and a touchdown. It was Hill’s first catch of the contest and his fourth career touchdown reception.


BYU comes into the game as the No. 25 team in the preseason AP Top 25 poll. It’s the first time BYU earned a preseason ranking since 2009.

On the other sideline, USF is looking for its second win against an FBS team this decade. The Bulls are led by third-year head coach Jeff Scott, who has only three games in his first two seasons. But only one of those victories was against an FBS team.

BYU is looking for its third-consecutive year of double-digit victories. The Cougars are led by seventh-year head coach Kalani Sitake, who is a former fullback at the school.

Today marks the third meeting all-time between the two programs. Each has won once in the first two contests, both defending their home turf. The two are scheduled to meet a fourth time in Provo in 2026.
