SALT LAKE CITYBYU running back Hinckley Roptai broke loose for a big touchdown run during the Cougars’ regular season finale against the Stanford Cardinal.

The Cardinal hosted the Cougars at Stanford Stadium on Saturday, November 26.

With 5:29 to go in the opening quarter, Ropati took a handoff from Cougars quarterback Jaren Hall and sprinted down the field for 43 yards and into the end zone for six points. It was the running back’s first touch of the contest. It was also Ropati’s first touchdown run of the season and his second score of 2022.

Ropati’s touchdown run gave BYU a 14-3 lead.

The run capped a seven-play, 75-yard drive that lasted 2:57.

The Downey, California native entered the game with 22 carries for 75 yards and four catches for 95 yards and a touchdown this season.

 

The Cougars entered the game with a 6-5 record.

BYU’s game against Stanford is broadcast on FS1, KSLSports.com, and KSL NewsRadio.

BYU vs. Stanford

There isn’t much on the line in this game. BYU, an FBS Independent, is 6-5 and has already clinched bowl eligibility. Stanford has navigated through another disappointing season as they enter the season finale at 3-8.

But despite this game not impacting the national landscape, it could be a matchup that provides some classic “Pac-12 After Dark” entertainment.

BYU comes into the matchup as winners of their past two games against Boise State and Utah Tech. Stanford is currently on a four-game losing streak and is in danger of a second consecutive 3-9 season.

A side note to this game that should be interesting to follow is the crowd. Stanford has been known to have poor showings in attendance numbers. Last month, Stanford offered a “free trial” to get more people into the stands. Don’t be surprised if a lot of BYU fans took advantage of that offer and scooped up tickets.
