BYU Fans, Coaches And Players React In Loss To No. 22 Washington

BYU Football

Good bye, good vibes!

After back-to-back overtime victories over Tennessee and USC, BYU’s positive momentum went out the window as No. 22 Washington walked out of LaVell Edwards Stadium with a dominating 45-19 victory.

Washington QB Jacob Eason threw for 290 yards and three touchdowns and the Huskies scored two touchdowns off three BYU turnovers and even returned a punt for a touchdown to coast to the victory.

The Huskies racked up 477 yards on offense compared to just 356 yards for the Cougars. Washington rushed for 187 yards for an average of 4.8 yards per carry. BYU managed just 79 yards for an abysmal 2.9 yards per carry.

BYU QB Zach Wilson did his best to keep the Cougars in the game as the sophomore threw for 277 yards and a touchdown. Wilson did have an interception to his name, however, it wasn’t his fault as Alevo Hifo tripped over his own feet and fell to the ground as Washington’s Asa Turner easily intercepted the pass near the BYU sideline.

Overall, it was a rough game for BYU, as three Cougar drives ended with turnovers and two others being failed fourth down conversions.

“They’re returning Pac-12 champs, they’re gonna be a really good team this season,” tight end Matt Bushman told reporters after the game. “But our mistakes just made them look like world beaters.”

From dropped balls, to penalties and turnovers, there wasn’t a lot of positives to take away from the game. Here’s how fans, players and coaches reacted after the loss:
