BYU Completes Dominant Rocky Mountain Fall

BYU is 6-0 this fall.

BYU won the Rocky Mountain Conference title Saturday with a convincing 62-0 victory over Colorado State.

Center Tayson Hammer, who has been enjoying a really strong fall, scored in the opening two minutes and converted his own try to put BYU in front to stay. Hammer would end up with 17 points on the day. The game remained at 7-0 for the next 11 minutes as CSU battled, but then BYU lock Brittain Hale was over and prop McKay Johnson scored a few minutes later.

The Ika brothers scored either side of halftime, with Tevita running in before the break and Spencer after the break. 

No. 8 Josh Nielsen, scrumhalf Nathaniel Edlefsen, flanker Jacob LIttlefield, back John Campbell, and lock Jacob Hall all got in on the scoring act. Four players came off the bench to score tries.

"We had a strong defensive performance," said BYU Head Coach Steve St. Pierre. "We still have lots to improve on but we have gotten better with each game this fall. CSU is a good team and we were pleased with the result."

For the fall, all conference games, BYU is 6-0 with only one game in which they didn't score more than 60 points—that was a 46-0 shutout of Utah State. On defense they gave up one try and posted three shutouts. They scored exactly 400 points for an average of 66.67 per game, while allowing just 13.
