BYU pulled off the big win for a second straight week, defeating 20th ranked Boise State last night.
From Chantel Jennings, ESPN:
Tanner Mangum, the kid who came in for BYU quarterback Taysom Hill and had turned into a star overnight with one Hail Mary against Nebraska, is now on his way to becoming a folk hero with his second Hail Mary in a second consecutive weekend.
His deep bomb on fourth-and-7 with a subsequent PAT gave BYU a four-point margin over No. 20 Boise State, and Kai Nacua’s 50-yard pick-six on the next Broncos’ offensive play sealed the deal for BYU, 35-24.
Brett attended the game where he spoke to the Cougar Club before the game and he held an autograph signing during a pre-game tailgate. Fans were lined up for miles! He also was the Alumni Flag Bearer.
Great to have Brett Keisel run out the flag tonight! Love that dudes energy! #GoCougs – Bronco Mendenhall, BYU Head Coach
BYU fans were thrilled by this:
Brett Keisel is a hero. Just took the Alumni flag, posted himself right in front of the Boise tunnel and screamed at ’em coming out. #Legend – P.Norton

Way to go Cougars!
