    • THE SERIES. BYU and Toledo have played just one other time with the Cougars winning a wild shootout in Provo, 55-53 in 2016. Running back Jamaal Williams ran for a school-record 286 yards and five touchdowns, every one of which was needed as the Rockets put up 692 yards of total offense, including 505 in the air. Toledo used a two-point conversion to go up 53-52 with 1:11 left in the game. Quarterback Taysom Hill found receiver Colby Pearson for 33 yards to put BYU into Toledo territory when Hill and Williams runs got the Cougars to the Rockets' two-yard line and kicker Rhett Almond hit a 19-yard chip-shot field goal for the win as time expired, giving BYU a 55-53 win.

    • GROUP OF 5. After starting the year as the only team to play four Power 5 teams in the first four weeks of the season, the Cougars now face their first non-Power 5 team in Toledo from the Mid-American Conference. The Rockets were the preseason favorites to win the MAC West Division.

    • MACtion. BYU has only played in one other MAC stadium in the regular season with three trips to Kalamazoo, Michigan to play Western Michigan in 1962, 68 and 70 at Waldo Stadium. BYU is 6-2 against current members of the MAC, with four wins over Western Michigan, one over Toledo and another over Bowling Green.

    • TOUGH SCHEDULE. According to the Jeff Sagarin ratings on USA Today, BYU has played the 10th toughest schedule in college football to date. Auburn, Pitt, Syracuse, Southern Miss and BYU have all won at least two games against a top-10 schedule. The Cougars also played three ranked teams in the first four games, the only team to take on that challenge.

    • COLLEGE FOOTBALL 150. 2019 represents the 150th year of college football, celebrating the first game played between Rutgers and Princeton, Nov. 6, 1869. Throughout the 2019 season, watch for special ways college football pro- grams honor the rich tradition that is college football, starting with a uniform patch the Cougars will wear each game and the CFB150 logo as the 50-yard markers on the field.

    THIS DAY IN HISTORY

    September 28 2012 BYU defeats Hawaii 47-0 in Hill's first start In his first collegiate start, Taysom Hill threw for two TDs and ran for 143 yards and another score.
