In what is a 3 game stretch against Pac-12 South teams, BYU started the season with a win against the University of Arizona. What some would likely consider a sloppy performance, BYU won 24-16 in a game that included some special teams highlights, a defensive score, and a very scary injury to BYU’s Keenan Ellis, who is recovering quickly.
BYU head coach Kalani Sitake said:
“I am really happy about the win. Obviously, there is a lot of things that we can improve on ... I was really proud of the fight from our team to respond and find a way to get the win.
