Their most recent game saw them face a 27-14 defeat at the hands of BYU Cougars despite scoring 389 yards on offense and only five turnovers total (one leading directly to an end zone fumble recovery by BYU for a touchdown recovery), leading them down an unproductive road that saw three interceptions thrown by quarterback Jake Strong who also faced an uncomfortable start despite scoring 389 yards himself despite 389 total yards being gained on offense while BYU outscored them 389-3 in turnovers alone for total yardage gain while BYU had three interceptions of their own fumbling around them throughout this game.
