This week BYU was named the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl National Team of the Week after its 40-21 victory over then No. 15 Texas at LaVell Edwards Stadium. Four players—quarterback Taysom Hill, running back Jamaal Williams, linebacker Alani Fua and placekicker Justin Sorensen—were also recognized nationally with various honors for their contributions to the Cougar victory.
With his 259 rushing yards and three touchdowns directing the BYU triumph, Hill deservedly received numerous awards during the week, including National Player of the Week accolades. Consequently, BYU was a primary topic in local and national media during the week. In addition to local media interviews with players and coaches, BYU conducted more than a half-dozen national interviews, including national radio shows on CBS Sports Radio, Fox Sports Radio, Sirius XM Satellite Radio and BYU Radio Sports Network.
Here are links to several of those interviews in case you missed them during the week.
