PROVO – BYU broke out some trickery and scored a touchdown against the Baylor Bears on a “Philly Special” play in the second half.
The No. 21 Cougars hosted the No. 9 Bears at LaVell Edwards Stadium on Saturday, September 10.
With 1:28 left in the third quarter, Hall threw a lateral to Roberts on the far side of the field. Immediately after catching the pass, Roberts tossed the ball forward and back to the other side of the field. Hall snagged Roberts’ toss and ran behind a set of blockers for a 22-yard touchdown. The QB-WR-QB trick play was made famous by the Philadelphia Eagles during their Super Bowl victory a few seasons ago.
Hall’s touchdown catch gave BYU a 20-13 lead.

After the play, Roberts was 1/1 passing for 22 yards and a touchdown. Roberts also had six catches for 79 yards and a touchdown. Hall was 18/27 passing for 189 yards and a touchdown. He added seven carries for eight yards on the ground and one catch for 22 yards and a touchdown.
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.
