Cougar Cornerback Eddie Heckard Makes Incredible Interception Against TCU

With 10:53 left in the first half, BYU cornerback Eddie Heckard was one of the few players that made a highlight play on the defensive side for the Cougars. Heckard picked off TCU QB Josh Hoover with a one-handed grab that in the moment, gave BYU a sliver of hope that they could back into the game. Despite Heckard’s best efforts, BYU as a team struggled and it wasn’t enough to get back into the game.” – BYU insider Mitch Harper

Faison juked one tackler in the backfield before breaking two more tackles on his way to a lead-changing 24-yard touchdown. Faison finished the night with a team-high 75 yards on 12 carries in USU’s 37-32 loss.” – USU insider Brian Preece
