BYU's fake punt on fourth-and-19 from its own 5-yard line went … well, it did not go well. Punter Jonny Linehan made it out of the end zone, but was tackled before reaching the line of scrimmage. BYU coach Kalani Sitake offered the following explanation before going to the locker room at halftime: "Well, on film we thought we had it. We wanted to be aggressive. We came to win the game and it just didn't work out. They made a great adjustment – something that we haven't seen in prior games. But we wanted to be aggressive and it didn't hurt us. Our defense had our backs."
