Digging deeper: The most dominant undersized athletes

Sports are dominated by athletes with freight train-like bodies -- guys who are over seven feet tall or can bench 500 pounds. But occasionally, a player who's not so much of a physical freak of nature breaks through and excels simply because of talent. Of undersized players, here are the top four most dominant professional...

'Worth' the wait: Returned missionary Collinsworth shines in sophomore season

Returned missionaries acclimate to the real world and its expectations with varying success. In his role as men's basketball team captain and BYU's do-it-all guy on the court, Kyle Collinsworth, who returned from his mission to Russia this last summer, is adjusting just fine. "Kyle's effect on our team this year has been every bit...

Cougar football heads to Wisconsin to face two-headed monster

You've seen it in movies and video games. The hero courageously defeats the foe, only to realize that another equally fit enemy lies in wait. It's what the BYU football team will face as it heads to Wisconsin to take on the No. 24 Badgers and dynamic running back duo Melvin Gordon and James White....

BYU's new brand of football

Devotional is Tuesday at 11 a.m., caffeine is not sold on campus, and the football team passes for huge amounts of yardage. Right? One thing has changed this fall at BYU, and it has nothing to do with weekly devotionals or caffeinated beverages. A football program typically boasting one of the nation's top air attacks...

BYU receivers stepping up

The traditional BYU passing game was nearly extinct. After four games of the 2013 season, receivers were not catching passes. As BYU was trying to establish its new offense with Taysom Hill behind center, the running game was much more intuitive and successful. BYU receivers were being used most effectively as blockers.

All eyes on Taysom

Taysom. Hill. BYU football fans drool over the possibility of two more years with him at the helm. Journalists ask him how it feels to be a Heisman hopeful. Girls on campus want to know if he's single. But Hill takes all the admiration with a grain of salt.

Seniors' contributions reach far past victory over Idaho State

Twenty-two seniors bid farewell Saturday during BYU's final home football game of the season in a 59-13 rout of Idaho State. While their big plays throughout the game paced the Cougars to an easy win, the senior class has left an even more impressive legacy at BYU.

BYU football seeks revenge in South Bend

Last year the BYU football team visited one of the most iconic settings in college football to take on a team that would later play in the national championship. The Cougars claimed an early lead - one they would hold into the fourth quarter - before surrendering their advantage and the game to the Notre...

BYU football suffers another disappointing loss in South Bend

If the BYU football team needs to beat Notre Dame in order to make a case for a rivalry between the two teams, it'll have to wait. For the second year in a row, the Cougars traveled into South Bend and exited with a loss. This time, BYU lost 23-13 on a frigid senior day...

Cougars crash-land in the blue zone in 2013

If the BYU offense is like a plane ride, most of the trip is smooth flying in 2013. Jamaal Williams bounds up the middle for seven yards. You may now use personal electronics. Cody Hoffman makes a 17-yard catch on a deep out. You may get up and use the restroom.
