BYU came back from a halftime deficit, but a late Hawaii touchdown and interception doomed BYU in a 38-34 loss.
Hawaii threw for 493 yards and exposed BYU down the field in the first half and late in the game. BYU had an effective run-pass balance on offense, but iffy play calls late and critical turnovers doomed the Cougars; BYU lost the turnover battle 3-0.
BYU now heads into the offseason with another 7-6 record and questions surrounding the trajectory of the program. BYU’s first game of the 2020 season is at Utah, so coaches and players will have a lot of soul searching for the next 8 months.
