Game 7 at TCU

No. 18 BYU outpaced San Diego State, 38-28, at Qualcomm Stadium in San Diego with quarterback Max Hall throwing for a season-high 346 yards and running for a career-best 47 yards in the victory. Hall completed 27-of-39 passes, adding three touchdowns while carrying the ball a career-high 14 times, including one touchdown. As BYU approached the end zone at the end of the half, Hall was stopped for no gain at the 1-yard line with the final seconds ticking down. With the coaches motioning from the sideline for Hall to spike the ball to kill the clock, the senior signal caller instead took the snap and rolled left past the unsuspecting Aztec defense and into the end zone as the clock hit 0:00. Hall’s improvisation and safety Scott Johnson’s diving interception in the end zone to set up that drive were two big plays that helped BYU maintain its advantage. BYU opened the scoring in the game with running back Harvey Unga recording his team-high ninth touchdown on the season. Hall found tight end Andrew George for a 19-yard score in the third quarter. The Cougars took a two-touchdown advantage early in the fourth quarter when Hall rolled right and found Pitta from nine yards out to go up 35-21. Mitch Payne converted a field goal from 44 yards to secure the victory, knocking the attempt dead down the middle to give BYU a 10-point advantage with just over two minutes remaining in the game.
