The Roadrunners made it interesting by keeping the highest-scoring Cougars at the lowest level of the season and doing a rally in the fourth quarter. But BYU was able to hold out and remain unbeaten at 4-0.
The Cougars held the nation's leading rusher, UTSA's STSere McCormick, with eleven runs to 42 yards. But backup quarterback Lowell Narcisse, a second-quarter substitute, threw 229 yards and two points when the Roadrunners hit back (3-2) in the fourth quarter.

After neither team scored a goal in the third overtime, Drake Stoops caught a 25-yard touchdown pass and Spencer Rattler found Theo Wease for the two-point conversion to push the Longhorns' back against the wall.
No. 24 Iowa State 31, Texas Tech 15
