TAMPA – BYU quarterback Jaren Hall found tight end Dallin Holker for his second touchdown toss against the USF, which helped the Cougars extend their first half lead over the Bulls.

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

With 7:19 left in the first half, Hall found Holker for a 13-yard catch. The tight end took the ball across the goal for his first touchdown of the season and BYU’s fifth score of the game.

Holker’s connection with Hall gave BYU a 35-0 lead.

After his throw, Hall improved his game statistics to 13/17 passing for 155 yards and two touchdowns. Holker had three receptions for 39 yards and a touchdown. It was the tight end’s third career touchdown catch.

BYU’s game against USF is broadcast on ESPNU and KSL NewsRadio.

BYU vs. USF

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.
