The BYU Cougars couldn’t overcome a flurry of late turnovers as they fell 35-32 to West Virginia at FedEx Field in Landover, Maryland, on Saturday afternoon.
The Cougars had two opportunities late in the fourth quarter to pull the game out, but a pair of costly interceptions sealed their fate as they dropped to 1-3 on the season.
West Virginia got on the board first when running back Rushel Shell scored from 6 yards out to cap an 88-yard drive. One of the key plays came when Skyler Howard found Ka’Raun White for an 8-yard completion to move the chains on fourth and 5.
BYU answered right back when Taysom Hill connected with Mitchell Juergens for the 25-yard touchdown to tie the game. Jamaal Williams did a lot of work on the possessions with seven carries for 46 yards, including an 8-yard run on third and 4.
