>> gus: the officials up in the replay booth saw it. >> referee: delay of game. >> gus: or they did not. >> referee: first down. >> joel: wow! that is such a mistake from taysom hill. this is the play we're talking about. the ball definitely touches the ground. but the ground didn't help him catch the ball. he had control. and it kind of grazed the ground. i agree with the replay officials here that they didn't stop it and take another look. that was clearly a completion. >> gus: first down and goal at the 7 for taysom hill. byu down 20-13. hill. in the end zone.

>> gus: byu out of time-outs. the on-side kick coming. >> joel: absolutely. >> gus: half to. >> joel: you know what? i love the two-point play aggressiveness from kalani sitake. i think you should have a check attach to a quarterback dr said. if they blitz, you don't a blocker. so the play called you could talk about. but i love the aggressiveness from kalani sitake. when we met with him, that is exactly what he wanted to infuse in his kids. he believes in them. he trusts them. he wants them to have fun. credit to the utah defense. how many times have they shown

house. credit to kyle whittingham and his coaching staff. that front seven who was so good all night long. >> gus: number 20, marcus williams. the all-conference safety. let's go downstairs to shannon with coach whittingham. >> shannon: coach whittingham, the crossover between the two teams is incredible as you can see. just the respect between coaches. everyone giving each other hugs. between the ups and downs, every time they were on the field they brought it. what do you say about the relentlessness from the group? >> great effort all night long. opened with a pick six, which was huge. the offense had trouble getting in a rhythm. the last drive we ground the clock down and allowed them to kick the field goal. team effort. >> shannon: how close in the last drive you mentioned, how
