BYU Vs. Tulsa Score: Cougars Take Lead Late In Third Quarter

The Tulsa Golden Hurricane could not capitalize a great opportunity, and the BYU Cougars have taken a lead for the first time in the 2011 Armed Forces Bowl as a result. After a 30-yard touchdown pass from Riley Nelson to Cody Hoffman, the Cougars are up 17-14 with under two minutes left in the third quarter.

Nelson made a nice throw, hitting a Hoffman in stride in the end zone. He made what could have been a fatal error on BYU's previous drive, however, throwing straight into the arms of a waiting Tulsa defender while getting hit. The Golden Hurricane took over on the Cougars' 35-yard line, but would go on to miss a field goal from 46 yards out, giving Nelson a chance to redeem himself.

BYU drove 71 yards in nine plays for the score. Nelson completed three straight passes for 57 yards on the drive.
