Jaren Hall threw for 298 yards and four touchdowns Saturday to lead No. 15 BYU to a 59-14 victory over Idaho State in Provo, Utah.
Puka Nacua had 120 yards and a touchdown on six receptions to lead the Cougars with his second straight 100-yard game.
Keanu Hill added a career-high 92 yards and a touchdown on four receptions. Hill also blocked a punt and recovered it in the end zone for another touchdown late in the fourth quarter.
BYU (8-2) amassed 560 yards in winning its third straight game.
Sagan Gronauer threw for 167 yards and a touchdown for Idaho State (1-8, 1-5 Big Sky), which fell to 0-7 all-time against the Cougars. The Bengals mustered 238 total yards and punted 10 times en route to their fourth straight loss.
Idaho State went 3-and-out on three of four first-quarter drives and the remaining one ended in an interception that Pepe Tanuvasa returned to the Bengal 6-yard line.
The Cougars, meantime, experienced no trouble marching down the field against the Bengals, scoring touchdowns on their first five drives, and then after a fumble ended a drive, scored the next time they got the ball to take a 42-7 halftime lead.
They racked up 397 total yards by halftime, averaging 9.0 yards a play.
Hall orchestrated one BYU drive after another with big passing plays. He accounted for five touchdowns in the first half (four passing, one rushing) while completing 80% of his passes.
The Bengals scored their only touchdown before halftime after cashing in on a BYU fumble at the Cougars’ 17-yard-line. Jared Scott reeled in a 6-yard catch to get Idaho State on the board with 1:20 left in the half.
BYU has a week off before facing Georgia Southern on Nov. 20, preceding their contest at USC.
