BYU’s offense is becoming virtually unstoppable with Zach Wilson at the controls. Wilson threw for 287 yards and four touchdowns to lead the No. 12 Cougars to a 52-14 victory over Texas State on Saturday night. “This whole season he’s been killing it,” said tight end Isaac Rex, who led BYU with a career-high 66 yards and two touchdowns on five receptions.
BYU followed up with 49 unanswered points to put the game far out of reach, 52-14, and improve to 6-0 on the season for just the fifth time in program history. The Cougars' offense fired on all cylinders. Led by Zach Wilson, who threw for 287 yards and four touchdowns on 19 of 25 passing in less than three quarters, BYU put up 579 total yards.
To start with the honest truth, BYU's home game this weekend isn't the biggest one on the schedule. It's not — or at least, it shouldn't be — the toughest game on the Cougars' schedule, which currently stands at 10 games, plus a potentially rescheduled matchup with Army. While the Texas State Bobcats offer their own offensive system, their own quirks, and their own game plan, they won't — or shouldn't, according to most outsiders — rise to the level of Houston or Boise State, or even Navy.
