BYU Wins Cal Poly Game 56-27
The BYU Cougars once again put on a show of offensive dominance Saturday night, beating the Cal Poly Mustangs 56-27 at LaVell Edwards Stadium in Provo, UT.
The Cougars led the charge with a powerful offensive showing, led by quarterback Zach Wilson. The junior went 17-19 on the night, throwing for 300 yards and 3 touchdowns without an interception. Wilson also ran for 35 yards and 2 more scores, showcasing his dual-threat capability. On the ground, the Cougars got a spark from running back Ty’Son Williams, who rushed for 144 yards and a touchdown.
Unfortunately for BYU, the defense was not as successful. The Mustangs were able to move the ball consistently and ended the game with 375 total yards, including 129 yards on the ground.
While the game was ultimately a success for the Cougars, there are still areas where the defense needs to improve. Head coach Kalani Sitake will have his work cut out for him this week in order to make sure the unit can perform better next week when they take on Boise State.
Overall, BYU put in a strong performance and proved once again why they are a team to be reckoned with. The Cougars are now 4-3 on the season and will look to build on this win as they head into their next matchup.
