Brigham Young University sophomore quarterback Jake Heaps, a former Skyline High standout, passed for 192 yards and a touchdown Sept. 10 but it was not enough for the Cougars, which lost 17-16 to Texas.
The previous week, Heaps hit 24 of 38 passes for 225 yards and a touchdown in the Cougars’ come-from-behind 14-13 victory against Mississippi.
Taylor Wyman, an Issaquah High grad, rushed for 52 yards on five carries in his collegiate debut for Willamette University on Sept. 3. However, the Bearcats lost to Wisconsin-Stevens Point 8-6.
