How to watch BYU vs Niagara: Game time, TV schedule, streaming, radio, odds, game thread and more

BYU welcomes Niagara (1-2) from Niagara, New York, who has a upset win over St. Bonaventure already.

BYU Football loses home finale to UMass

BYU Football loses home finale to UMass

3-9 In an embarrassing season for BYU, today’s result versus UMass may have been the lowest point of the year. Playing a 3-7 UMass team that was giving up 31 ppg and hadn’t won a road game in two years, BYU couldn’t get anything going offensively for most of the afternoon, losing 16-10. BYU’s red zone defense kept the Cougars within striking distance, but poor offensive line play and a true freshman-like performance from Joe Critchlow kept BYU from getting anything going offensively. Critchlow threw 4 picks and was under duress for much of the afternoon, as evidenced by the...

BYU Basketball: Cougars tough out big road win at Princeton

BYU Basketball: Cougars tough out big road win at Princeton

Cougar hoopers go into Princeton and get a big win on the road Although the season is only in mid-November, the BYU basketball team picked up a quality win that will look really good come March by defeating Princeton on the road by a score of 65-56. The Cougars were powered by another great game by Elijah Bryant, who had 22 points and 7 rebounds. In a game that was defined by both teams missing open shots and struggling to find points, Bryant did a little bit of everything for the Cougars, as he shot 9-10 from the free throw line, hit a three, and found his way into the paint. BYU only...

BYU tips off its basketball season tonight! After three exhibition victories, BYU kicks off its hoops regular season tonight in the Marriott Center.

BYU Football back in the win column after beating UNLV

BYU Football back in the win column after beating UNLV

The Cougars beat the Rebels 31-21, continuing their dominance over UNLV at Sam Boyd Stadium. Joe Critchlow’s solid quarterback play and Squally Canada’s career-high night have got to be the most important headlines coming out of BYU Football’s 31-21 win over UNLV Friday. Cougar Nation was left wondering who would start at quarterback up until it was practically game time — when Kalani Sitake told Greg Wrubell that Beau Hoge was not able to go, and Joe Critchlow would be the guy, with Kody Wilstead playing behind him. With Critchlow’s playing time being limited at best, and with...

BYU Basketball announces Nick Emery will withdraw from school, miss 2017-18 season

Embattled BYU basketball star Nick Emery has voluntarily withdrawn from school for personal reasons, according to a Friday press release from the program. He will sit out the 2017-18 season. “I have decided to withdraw from BYU today,” Emery said in the release. “Unfortunately, I am mentally not where I need to be in order to perform in basketball and in school this year. As it has been made known, I went through a divorce this year and it has been really difficult for me. I have confidence that I will come back stronger and better. I have every intention on coming back to BYU and...

BYU Basketball defeats Colorado College in final exhibition contest

BYU Basketball defeats Colorado College in final exhibition contest

BYU took advantage of the Colorado College zone defense with excellent ball movement, capitalized in transition, and were able to show that they can be successful on offense without Yoeli Childs getting very involved. Zac Seljaas scored 19 points on six three pointers as the BYU Cougars dominated Colorado College for a 95-35 victory in their final exhibition game on Wednesday night at the Marriott Center. Yoeli Childs was quiet on offense, but still finished with a double-double of 11 points and 17 rebounds. T.J. Haws added 13 points, while Elijah Bryant contributed 12 points and 9...

Who will a young BYU Basketball squad look to for leadership? Dave Rose announces captains

Who will a young BYU Basketball squad look to for leadership? Dave Rose announces captains

No seniors? No problem. Juniors Elijah Bryant and Luke Worthington will lead the Cougs as captains for 2017-18. For the 2016-17 season BYU Basketball had just two seniors on its roster. For 2017-18 there are none. So where will this year’s squad look for leadership? To Elijah Bryant and Luke Worthington, Dave Rose announced Wednesday afternoon. Coach Rose said in naming juniors Worthington and Bryant, “Elijah and Luke are two of our most experienced players and have a great approach to the game. We’ll rely on them throughout the year to provide leadership in the locker room and on...
What BYU history might tell us about how to fix BYU football’s offensive problems

What BYU history might tell us about how to fix BYU football’s offensive problems

This isn’t the first time BYU needed an offensive overhaul. Perhaps the pre-LaVell Edwards era can provide some clues. There’s a lot of reasons why BYU is bad this season. The schedule has been challenging. Lackluster recruiting has left the program both with inadequate depth and a lack of high level FBS talent at offensive skill positions. The team has had horrendous injury luck. The list goes on and on. This is going to be a very interesting offseason for the program. What this recruiting class is going to look like is still up in the air, and some assistant coaching turnover...

BYU vs Fresno State Recap: Bulldogs outlast the Cougars 20-13

BYU vs Fresno State Recap: Bulldogs outlast the Cougars 20-13

Penalties and dropped passes continue to haunt the Cougars in another loss In a late night affair between the BYU Cougars and the Fresno State University Bulldogs, the Bulldogs came out with a 20-13 win. Once again scoring less than 15 points doesn’t win the game for the Cougars and a rough season continues. After a breakout game a week ago for the Cougars offense, the opposite happened in Fresno. BYU received the kickoff but went three and out and looked bored in the process. The defense followed the same game plan and let the Bulldogs march down field before finally holding on a third...

CougarCast: BYU Football vs. Fresno State

Can the Y defense hold Fresno State’s offense? The BYU Cougars are carrying a winning streak into Fresno on Saturday when they take on the Fresno State Bulldogs. Under new head coach Jeff Tedford, the Bulldogs have played to a record of 5-3. Fresno State has earned that record with fantastic defense. Fresno State is in the Top 25 teams nationally in Pass Defense, Rush Defense, and Scoring Defense. Meanwhile, the Cougars offense has been ineffective in 2017. BYU is in the Bottom 10 teams nationally in Scoring Offense and Rush Offense — they rank 92nd in Pass Offense. So, it is fair to...
