BOISE, IdahoBYU quarterback Jaren Hall ran for a touchdown for the first time this season on the Cougars’ opening drive against the Boise State Broncos.

The Broncos hosted the Cougars at Albertsons Stadium on Saturday, November 5.

With 8:48 remaining in the first quarter, Hall rushed up the middle for three yards and six points.

Hall’s run gave BYU an early 7-0 lead.

After the score, Hall was 5/5 passing for 45 yards. He added three carries for 12 yards and a touchdown with his legs.

This season, Hall has thrown for 2,245 yards, 21 touchdowns, and three interceptions with a 65.6 percent completion rate. Hall has also run the ball 58 times for 182 yards.

BYU’s game against Boise State is broadcast on FS2, KSL NewsRadio, and KSLSports.com.

BYU vs. Boise State

BYU vs Boise State has become one of the best annual matchups in college football out west. The final chapter takes place tonight on ‘The Blue.’

BYU will be going to the Big 12 Conference beginning in 2023. With that move, BYU and Boise State won’t play anytime soon. So even though BYU comes into this matchup on a four-game losing streak, it’s always a big game when these two square off.

“This is a rivalry game, and we don’t know what the future holds for it. I have a lot of respect for their coaching staff and their team,” BYU head coach Kalani Sitake. “They have an identity on offense. Andy [Avalos] has done a great job with the defense. They’re one of the top defenses in the country. This is not an easy game. I know a lot of the players on that roster. I have tons of respect for their fan base and the energy they provide for their team. It’s a unique and fun atmosphere.”

Boise State is headed in a completely different direction than BYU. The Broncos are on a four-game winning streak since firing offensive coordinator Tim Plough.

BYU trails the all-time series against Boise State, 4-8. The series began in 2003 and then became an annual matchup in 2012, one year after BYU became an FBS Independent.
