The Cougars had big contributions across the board in the blowout win.
It wasn’t a question of if No. 8 BYU would stay perfect on Saturday afternoon. It was a question of how impressive the Cougars would be and how many backups could get valuable reps in facing North Alabama at LaVell Edwards Stadium.
Mission accomplished on both fronts, as BYU rolled to a 66-14 victory.
The Cougars improved to 9-0 for just the fourth time in school history with the victory over an FCS opponent in the first meeting between the two schools, as BYU emptied its bench in the second half.
