The Cougars take the field at Husky Stadium. The victory was the first ever in Seattle for the Cougars.
Fui Vakapuna Scores
Big Cougar fullback Fui Vakapuna scored his first touchdown of the season with 4:17 left in the third quarter to tie the score at 21.
Cougar tight end Dennis Pitta had another stellar game. In two games Pitta has caught 21 passes for 361 yards, averaging 17.2 yards per catch.
Outside linebacker David Nixon brings down Husky quarterback Jake Locker. The hit resulted in a Locker fumble.
Freshman sensation O'Neill Chambers returns a kick against the Husky special teams unit. Chambers faired well and leads the Cougars with 195 yards as a kick returner in the first two games. He is averaging 27.9 yards per return.
Sophomore running back Harvey Unga carved up the Husky defense, rushing for 136 yards on 23 carries. He also added 39 yards on five receptions for a total of 175 all-purpose yards.
Quarterback Max Hall lines up under center. He went 34-of-41 for 486 yards and two touchdowns against the Husky defense.
The Cougars swarm Jake Locker, who fared well on the ground and brought the Huskies back within one with time running out.
Walk-on cornerback Scott Johnson had an outstanding game against a talented Husky wide receiving corps. Johnson not only provided good coverage down field, but also showed he can provide good defense in run coverage, as can be seen here as he stops running back David Freeman with this hit.
Wide receiver Michael Reed had a successful performance against the Husky secondary, making drive-sustaining catches when thrown to.
Pitta turns up field and leaves a Husky defender in his wake. Pitta currently leads BYU's receivers, averaging 180.5 yards per game.
Hall is averaging 401 yards per game. The Cougar quarterback was named the MWC Player of the Week and is a Heisman Trophy candidate.
Harvey Unga runs past Husky defenders. BYU's offensive line controlled the trenches and paved the way for more than 100 yards on the ground.
The Cougars swarm junior wide receiver D'Andre Goodwin.

All-American candidate Jan Jorgensen blocks what would have been a game tying PAT, giving the Cougars a 28-27 victory over the Huskies.
