BYU posted back-to-back losing seasons for the first time since 1970-71 before LaVell Edwards took over the reigns of the program. John Beck became only the second true-freshman to start at quarterback for BYU when he started against Stanford. Running back Reynaldo Brathwaite recorded the longest run from scrimmage in Cougar history, a 95-yard score against San Diego State. Freshman tight end Daniel Coats was named to The Sporting News Freshman All-America team after posting 30 receptions for 378 yards and four touchdowns. The Cougars’ NCAA-record scoring steak ended at 361 after being shut out 3-0 against Utah in the final game of the season. The last time BYU was shut out was when Arizona State blanked the Cougars 20-0 on September 27, 1975
