Instead, they will treat it like two games. Hey, it worked against Texas. After BYU led UConn 28-7 in East Hartford and then failed to score in the second half until just over four minutes remained in the game, an eventual 35-10 win, coach Bronco Mendenhall decided to change up the Cougars’ halftime routine. It apparently worked, because the C...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune. All rights reserved.

Guys such as Jan Jorgensen, Russell Tialavea, Romney Fuga and Eathyn Manumaleuna have made defensive line coach Steve Kaufusi’s 12-year tenure in Provo a success.

But this is getting kind of ridiculous, with the opener against UConn three weeks away. The projected starting inside linebackers, Zac Stout and Manoa Pikula, missed most of this past week, the first full week...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.
