Thursday Trivia: Win-Loss Record On Halloween

The correct answer to last week’s trivia question "What BYU running back set the NCAA record for most touchdowns scored by rushing in one quarter?" is Dick Felt. He scored four touchdowns in the fourth quarter in a game against San Jose State, on November 8, 1952. That's right, twenty years before LaVell Edwards started coaching, BYU players were setting NCAA records. Felt was the first player to score four rushing touchdowns in one quarter. Now, there are four, but it wasn't until 1990 that a second player accomplished this feat. How impressive is that?

Yesterday's flashback had a Halloween theme to it. We will continue that theme with the trivia question.
What is BYU's record in games played on Halloween (October 31)?

  1. It would help if we could know how many games BYU has played on Halloween.

  2. Excellent suggestion Neal.

    BYU has played 11 games on Halloween.

  3. Thanks. That is helpful. I'm going to guess BYU has a 7-4 record on Halloween.
