TOLEDO, Ohio – BYU quarterback Zach Wilson was injured on the second to last Cougar possession and did not play in the final drive of the game as the Cougars’ comeback attempt fell short on the road, losing to Toledo 28-21.

Wilson threw an interception in Toledo territory with just over a minute left in the game. The Rockets scored the game-winning touchdown two plays later to take a seven-point advantage.

BYU backup QB Jaren Hall entered the game for the Cougars. Hall led BYU down the field but the Cougars were unsuccessful on a 32-yard hail mary as time expired and lost their third game of the season.

Prior to Wilson’s pick, BYU’s Chaz Ah You stripped the football away from Toledo RB Byrant Koback, giving the Cougars a chance to drive for the winning score.

Wilson was intercepted on the next play by Khalil Robinson who returned the ball 40 yards to the BYU 2. He didn’t return to the game after the game.


BYU head coach Kalani Sitake address Wilson’s status during his postgame interview. He said that the QB would be “out for a little bit.” Sitake didn’t comment on the specifics of Wilson’s injury.

The Cougars fell to a record of 2-3 on the season with the loss.

The Cougars have a bye week coming up before they head on the road to take on South Florida. That game will be on October 12. The game will be available on KSL NewsRadio 1160 AM and 102.7 FM.
