Max Hall threw three touchdown passes and Harvey Unga ran for 118 yards and a score in No. 20 Brigham Young's 35-17 victory over Utah State on Friday night in Provo, Utah.

The Cougars (4-1) capitalized on two critical mistakes by the Aggies deep in their own territory while winning for the 10th straight time in the state series.

Utah State (1-3) turned it over on a bad option pitch with 39 seconds left in the first half and the Cougars stopped the Aggies on fourth and one early in the fourth quarter. Both plays led to touchdowns that gave the Cougars a cushion even before Hall's third touchdown pass gave BYU a 35-10 lead with 2:45 left in the game.

Pittsburgh wins

Bill Stull threw for 242 yards and three touchdowns to help Pittsburgh overwhelm Louisville, 35-10, in Louisville, Ky. Dorin Dickerson caught two of Stull's scoring tosses as the Panthers (4-1, 1-0 Big East) overcame a shaky first half to hand the Cardinals (1-3, 0-1) their eighth straight loss to a Football Bowl Subdivision opponent.

Blount may return

Oregon running back LeGarrette Blount's season-long suspension for punching an opponent could be lifted if he meets certain conditions, Coach Chip Kelly said.

Blount punched Boise State's Byron Hout in the aftermath of Oregon's 19-8 season-opening loss to the Broncos. The suspension banned him from games, but Blount was allowed to remain on scholarship and practice with the team.

Kelly said he set down academic, behavioral and football-related "ladders" that Blount must achieve for possible reinstatement, but he did not provide specifics.

Hawaii loses QB

Hawaii senior quarterback Greg Alexander will miss the rest of the season after injuring his left knee Wednesday night in a loss at Louisiana Tech, school officials said Friday.
