Washington continued its scoring in the second quarter with a 30-yard field goal by Peyton Henry. BYU’s Emmanuel Esukpa answered for the Cougars on the next drive, rushing into the endzone for the first Cougar touchdown. Oldroyd missed the PAT but went on to kick a 54-yard field goal before the quarter ended.
