McCoy with the Utes
» Beyond quarterbacking the Utah Utes to consecutive 34-31 wins over BYU, Mike McCoy holds a place in Ute history for his role in the 1994 season. With McCoy and defensive lineman Luther Elliss as team leaders, the Utes won their first eight games before losing at New Mexico and Air Force. They earned a Top 10 final ranking by rallying to beat BYU and Arizona in the Freedom Bowl on McCoy’s touchdown pass to Kevin Dyson. That team’s 10-2 record would not be matched until the 2004 Utes went 12-0.
» In those ’93 and ’94 wins over BYU, which had won 19 of the previous 21 meetings, McCoy passed for a total of 681 yards and seven touchdowns to outduel John Walsh.
