Notes and quotes from BYU's 38-20 win over Georgia Tech
Some post-game notes and quotes tonight after BYU dropped Georgia Tech 38-20 in front of 60,320 at LaVell Edwards Stadium:
Coach Bronco Mendenhall's overall thoughts on the game:
"I am proud of our team. I thought we played hard, I thought we played well. I think after our last two outings that we are gaining momentum. We are playing better and better each week. After our third win in a row, we are seeing more and more positive things…..
"The game was kind of a defensive struggle in the second half," Mendenhall continued. "I thought Taysom [Hill] played really, really well. He made good decisions and was accurate and did a nice job with his legs.<
Georgia Tech is a difficult opponent to beat, so I am proud of our team."
Mendenhall on the return of Spencer Hadley, whose 5-game suspension was reduced to three games by the school's administration on Wednesday:
"He's experience. He's tough and he's a good leader. He's athletic and he cares a lot. He plays with his heart. It was great to have a phone call on Wednesday from the athletic director and from the university saying he has met all his obligations and they have lifted their suspension early. It was a celebration and a tribute to him."
Here's what Hadley said when asked what it felt like to be back:
"It felt amazing to be out there with the guys and contribute. We had a good night as a defense and it is a lot of fun to play a game like that. It's good to be back."
