Utah entered Thursday with just one win. But she didn’t play like a 1-3 team. Utah State and No. 19 BYU tied for 17 points in the half. But BYU’s star quarterback Summer hall threw two touchdowns in the third quarter and BYU fled 38-26, beating an upset Aggis.

Hall completed 17 of 27 passes for 274 yards with three touchdowns and zero interceptions. It helped that BYU had a major playmaker. Rifleman Romney back into the mix. Romney had four catches for 51 yards in his 2022 debut after the injury. Romney’s return is a big boon for the BYU offense, which will be tested in Notre Dame next week and in Arkansas on October 15th.

“I loved seeing that light in[Romney’s]eyes and the excitement of being on the field,” BYU Coach Seatake Loans said. “That’s what he likes. It was very hard for him to miss all those games after the camp, so hopefully next week he will give us some more memories.”
