BYU vs. CSU - As Witnessed by Me

One of the advantages of attending the University of Colorado is that BYU plays at least one football game within 100 miles of my residence every year. This year BYU plays at the Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, Colorado (~100 miles to the south of Boulder) on November 15th. Last year BYU played at the University of Wyoming in Laramie, Wyoming (~70 miles to the northwest of Boulder). And last night, BYU played at Colorado State University in Fort Collins, Colorado (~40 miles north of Boulder). And I was there.

For those of you who missed the game, here's a quick recap:
  1. CSU scored a touchdown
  2. BYU scored a touchdown
  3. Repeat steps 1 and 2 2 more times
  4. BYU scored a field goal
  5. Repeat steps 1 and 2 3 more times
  6. BYU wins 45-42
Basically, it was a high scoring thriller that showed that BYU's offense is very good and BYU's defense is very bad. The photographic summary of the game can be found below.That was BYU tight end Dennis Pitta catching the game winning touchdown with exactly 22 seconds left on the clock, courtesy of the Deseret Morning News. I was sitting less than 100 ft. away from Dennis Pitta when that play was made. I love Colorado.

  1. Yeah, that was an intense game. It would have been great to be at. Fortunatly I was able to listen to it over KSL radio projected over the Internet. I was on my heels.

    I don't know what to think about BYU. Their first 3-4 games they were blowing teams away and shutting them out literally. The last 3-4 games BYU has looked sort of weak.

    I just hope they still have a chance of going to a BCS game.
