Taysom Hill connected with Mitch Mathews on a six-yard touchdown strike to cap off BYU's first drive of the second half. Hill and Mathews then hooked up for their third touchdown connection of the night, a 43-yard pass play that pushed the lead to 31-7.
On the night, Hill has completed 16-of-29 passes for 218 yards and the three aforementioned touchdowns. The Cougars have also carried the football 37 times for 133 yards.
