It’s a young team this year, so not many players near the top of the charts, but here are a few notes.

McKay Jacobsen now has 105 receptions in his career at BYU, tied with Trevor Molini at #26 on the list. He passed up Bryce Doman this week.

BYU scoring by quarter


After watching the Cougars struggle in the third quarter most games this season, I thought I’d take a  look at BYU’s scoring by quarters this season. Only two third-quarter TDs this season, both vs. UCF.

BYU is currently on pace to have it’s lowest scoring season since 2003.

Q1 Q2 Q3 Q4 Final
Ole Miss 0 0 0 14 14
Texas 6 7 3 0 16
Utah 3 7 0 0 10
Central Florida 3 0 14 7 24
Utah State 10 3 0 14 27
San Jose State 9 14 3 3 29
Total 31 31 20 38 120
TD 2 4 2 5 13
FG 5 1 2 1 9
Safety 1 0 0 0 1

And BYU’s scoring by quarters each season of the Bronco Mendenhall era. So far, this season has the lowest average points in the first, second and third quarters.

Welcome to the CougarStats blog


In a continuing effort to expand the content and scope of cougarstats.com, we’ve added a blog site.

This blog will be used to post site info, statistical analysis, data, commentary and various info that doesn’t find a place on the site or is too long for the twitter feed.
