No. 25 BYU won it’s 600th game in program history and did so in impressive fashion as the Cougars rolled to a 66-49 victory over Virginia Saturday night at LaVell Edwards Stadium.

The victory was special for a number of reasons, including a plethora of standout performances on offense, but the biggest was beating Bronco Mendenhall, the former Cougar coach, who left the program in search of greener pastures.

BYU fans finally got their revenge game against the former coach, and BYU players made sure fans weren’t disappointed.

Led by BYU running back Tyler Allgeier, the Cougars were unstoppable on offense as the team racked up 734 yards of total offense, had 36 first downs, averaged nearly 10 yards per play and did not have a turnover either.

Allgeier finished the game with career highs in both rushing yards and touchdowns. The sophomore ran for 266 yards and five touchdowns as the Cougars set several records in the win. Allgeier’s five touchdowns also tied a BYU single-game record, joining Jamaal Williams who had a similar performance against Toledo in 2016.
