Study Hall: BYU 47, Houston 46

Russ Isabella-USA TODAY Sports

Confused? Visit the Advanced Stats glossary here. Or just skip to the words. I won't be offended. (Okay, I'll only be a little offended.)

Two return touchdowns kept this close for Houston. Still can't figure out what's more surprising: BYU giving up 46 points, or BYU giving up 46 points and winning?

BYU's Taysom Hill, by the way, had one of the most eventful stat lines you'll ever see: 29-for-44 passing for 417 yards, four touchdowns, three picks, and EIGHT sacks, plus 26 other carries for 194 yards. Dude's probably still in an ice bath.
