PROVO, Utah -- The Holy War is on the horizon, but BYU's focus was on a different in-state school Saturday afternoon.
For the first time since 1979, the Cougars took on the Weber State Wildcats. BYU won 45-13.
Stat of the game: 6½. It took that many quarters for a team to score a touchdown on BYU's defense this season.
Game ball goes to: Hoffman. After missing most of last week's contest due to a left quadriceps contusion, the junior wide receiver made a strong return to the field, catching six passes for 110 yards and a touchdown. It was the seventh 100-yard game of his career.
Half Nelson: Because of back spasms (and a 21-0 lead), Nelson rested the entire second half. This allowed senior James Lark to throw his first career touchdown pass and redshirt freshman Taysom Hill to run for two scores.
What it means for BYU: Let's be honest -- a win over an FCS opponent doesn't mean much. However, the Cougars were able to boost morale, stay healthy and find some things to work on before they face their longtime rival next week in Salt Lake City.
