PROVO – BYU quarterback Jaren Hall threw a beautiful pass to Chase Roberts, who touched his toes to the end zone turf for his first career touchdown during BYU’s game against the Baylor Bears.
The No. 21 Cougars hosted the No. 9 Bears at LaVell Edwards Stadium on Saturday, September 10.
With two seconds remaining in the first half, Hall dropped a dime into the end zone and the hands of Roberts. The redshirt freshman wideout collected the ball while getting a foot down in bounds for the Cougars’ first touchdown of the game.

Baylor vs. BYU
Baylor vs. BYU has all the makings to be a classic.
It’s a Big 12 sneak peek, and it’s a look at two Top 25 teams looking to score a big win in a late-night spot. Last season, Baylor crushed BYU in Waco, 38-24. It was only the third meeting all-time between the two faith-based schools.
The last time Baylor made a trip to Provo was in 1984, BYU’s National Championship season. That game saw BYU defeat the Bears 47-13. So it’s probably a safe bet to think no one will run away with tonight’s game as the Cougars did in ’84.
BYU’s game against Baylor is broadcast on ESPN and KSL NewsRadio.
