BYU Vs. UCF Score: Cody Hoffman Livens Things Up With Kickoff Return Touchdown

After two quarters with little action, business has suddenly picked up at LaVell Edwards Stadium in Provo. The UCF Knights drove the field for a touchdown, taking back the lead just minutes after UCF tied it up on a J.J. DiLuigi touchdown. The Knights' lead was momentary, spanning just about 15 seconds -- the time it took Cody Hoffman to do his damange.

Hoffman fielded the ensuing kickoff at his own seven-yard-line, found a seam and broke free with nothing but daylight in front of him, outrunning the coverage for the touchdown. The kick-return score was the Cougars' first in the last 158 games, a streak that's lasted nearly 13 years -- the last occurred in Oct. of 1998.

Prior to the barrage of touchdowns, all had been quiet, but the Friday night matchup has taken a turn for the wildly entertaining. As the third quarter comes to a close, BYU and UCF are all knotted at 17, setting up a tight finish in Provo.
