BYU Football Wiki

For the first time since 1973 the Cougars finished the regular-season with a sub-.500 record. Coincidentally, the ‘73 season was the second under legendary coach LaVell Edwards. His replacement, Gary Crowton, just completed his second season at BYU. For the first time in the four-season history of the MWC, BYU failed to win a conference road game, going 0-3. The Cougars combined to post a 9-2 conference road mark through the league’s first three seasons. Matt Berry was the first redshirt freshman quarterback to start at BYU since Ty Detmer in 1988. Brady Poppinga led the MWC with eight sacks for minus 52 yards. Matt Payne led the country with a punting average of 47.6 yards
