PROVO, Utah – BYU quarterback Jaren Hall hit the 4,000 career passing yards mark during during the Cougars’ game against the Wyoming Cowboys.

In BYU’s final drive of the first half, Hall tossed a three-yard pass to Brayden Cosper for a go-ahead touchdown. The six-point throw also gave Hall 4,000 passing yards in his college career.

“Just 20 QBs in #BYUFootball history have passed for 4,000 or more yards in a career,” KSL Sports Live’s Sam Farnsworth highlighted about Hall’s achievement.

He entered the game with 3,830 career passing yards and hit the 4,000 mark on his final throw before heading into the locker room at halftime with a 14-10 lead over the Cowboys.

During the first two quarters of action, Hall was 13/17 passing for 170 yards and a touchdown. He also had five carries for 13 yards.

This season, Hall has thrown for 997 yards, six touchdowns, and only one interception.

BYU’s game against Wyoming is broadcast on ESPN2 and KSL NewsRadio.

Wyoming vs. BYU

It’s the first meeting between these two schools since the 2016 Poinsettia Bowl in San Diego. These two programs were once Mountain West and WAC rivals. They used to play on an annual basis, with the last regular season meeting taking place in 2010.

Outside of Utah and Utah State, BYU has never played a team more than Wyoming. BYU’s first win as a program came against Wyoming back in 1922. There’s a history between the two schools. Anyone around for those LaVell Edwards/Paul Roach games or the 1996 WAC Championship would tell you BYU/Wyoming used to be something back in the day.

Wyoming hasn’t won in Provo since 1987. BYU has won the last eight meetings in the series, with Wyoming’s last victory coming in 2003 against a BYU team that finished 4-8.
