PROVO, Utah - The Brigham Young University Cougars fell to number 10 Oregon State 42-42 in Provo on Saturday afternoon.

After freshman QB Taysom Hill suffered a season-ending knee injury in the final seconds of last week's game, Riley Nelson was back out starting quarterback. Oregon State was also without their starting quarterback; Sean Mannion was out with a knee injury, so the Beavers played Cody Vaz.

In the first half, the Beavers and Cougars went back and forth, each scoring two touchdowns to go into halftime tied at 14. Each scored a TD in the third, but in the fourth quarter, it was all Oregon State.

They were the first score in the fourth quarter and BYU came back with a field goal, but OSU bounced back with a TD, putting them up 35-24.

An intercepted pass late in the fourth quarter and a 49-yard runback put Oregon State up 42-24 and BYU wasn't able to come back.

Oregon State remains undefeated at 5-0 and BYU falls to 4-3. The Cougars head to South Bend to take on number 5 Notre Dame next Saturday.
