PROVO, Utah – BYU quarterback Jaren Hall and wide receiver Keanu Hill cooked the Wyoming Cowboys on a late touchdown connection for 68 yards.

The No. 19 Cougars hosted the Cowboys at LaVell Edwards Stadium on Saturday, September 24.

With 5:31 remaining in the fourth quarter, Hall unloaded a deep ball to Hill, who beat his man and fought off a tackle to reach the end zone.

The Hall-Hill connection went for 68 yards and six points.

After an extra point kick, the Cougars took a 35-17 lead.

The touchdown capped a three-play, 72-yards that took only 1:36.

After the touchdown, Hall was 26/32 passing for 337 yards and four touchdowns. He added eight carries for 17 yards with his legs. Hill led BYU’s receivers with five catches for 160 yards and two touchdowns.

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.
