I was just messing with you, that loss is not on Max at all.
1. Defense allowed Tulsa to march down field at will all game, and crank out 500 yards passing and put up 55 points.
2. Max actually did display his last minute magic in giving the cougars one last chance by taking one of their last possessions down to a 1st down on the Tulsa 12 yard line with 4 minutes left, after a 49 yard pass to Austin Collie. Max threw for 537 yards and 4 td’s.
3. BYU had 14 penalties for 138 yards, including 2 false starts by Travis Bright after Max got BYU to the Tulsa 12 yard line with a few minutes left. That put BYU in a bad position to have to try score on 4th and 20. BYU also had 5 turnovers, including a fumble by Andrew George that ended BYU’s final possession.
So not Max’s best game, but the loss definitely not him.
