  • Cody Hoffman holds the BYU all-time records for career receiving yards with 3,431, receptions with 246 and touchdown receptions with 33. He needs one more 100-yard receiving game to pass Austin Collie and hold the BYU all-time record in that category.
  • 1,000 yards. Sophomore quarterback Taysom Hill has 1,057 rushing yards and 2,547 passing yards this season, the first BYU player and 23rd in the NCAA to have 1,000 rushing yards and 2,000 passing yards in a season. Sophomore running back Jamaal Williams needs just 17 more rushing yards to reach 1,000. If Williams reaches 1,000, it will be the first time in BYU history two players have rushed for 1,000 in the same season.
