BYU takes Bell Helicopter Armed Forces Bowl

Tulsa played well enough to win the Bell Helicopter Armed Forces Bowl if the game was two 29 minute halves.  Tulsa had a 14-3 lead with less than a minute to go in the first half when they muffed a punt that allowed BYU to score and cut the lead to 14-10 at halftime.  Leading 21-17 with 4:18 remaining in the game, Tulsa punted to BYU who took over at the Tulsa 47.  BYU quarterback Riley Nelson led the Cougars down the field and hit BYU game Most Outstanding Player Cody Hoffman for a 2yd TD pass with only 11 seconds remaining.  Hoffman finished the game with 8 catches, 122 receiving yards and 3 TDs.
