BYU: 37

Middle Tennessee: 10

FINAL

 

It was an ugly 27-point win but BYU will take it to improve to 2-2 on the season. Middle Tennessee will drop to 3-2, as the Blue Raiders weren't able to take advantage of BYU's five turnovers.

Cougars quarterback Taysom Hill was the player of the game, passing for 177 yards, rushing for 165 yards and scoring two touchdowns.

The Blue Raiders put up a solid fight in the first 15 minutes, but they fell apart for the final three quarters.

It wasn't the prettiest game, but the Cougars got the job done and the fan base can sleep a little better tonight. Middle Tennessee will play East Carolina next week and BYU will travel to Utah State.
