SALT LAKE CITYBYU quarterback Jaren Hall connected with Isaac Rex on a trick play to extend the Cougars’ lead during their regular season finale against the Stanford Cardinal.

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

With 13:43 left in the second quarter, the Cougars pulled off a trick play after a handoff and a pitch in the backfield before Hall unloaded a 43-yard touchdown pass to Rex.

The score gave BYU a 21-3 lead over Stanford.

Hall’s toss to Rex capped a five-play, 76-yard drive that took 2:46.

After the score, Hall was 4/7 passing for 67 yards and a touchdown. He also had two carries for 37 yards and a touchdown. Rex had one reception for 43 yards and a touchdown.

Hall entered the contest having thrown for 3,078 yards, 29 touchdowns, and six interceptions with a completion rate of 66.0 percent this season. Rex arrive in Northern California with 19 catches for 249 yards and four touchdowns.

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.
