Provo • BYU freshman Cody Hoffman and sophomore Brandon Ogletree are the Mountain West Conference special teams and defensive players of the week for their play in a 25-20 win over Wyoming on Saturday.
The honors were the first for both players in their careers and first for a BYU player since the opening week of the season.
Ogletree registered career highs of five solo tackles and three tackles-for-loss at linebacker for the Cougars. The McKinney, Texas, product also had a pass breakup and a quarterback hurry against the Cowboys.
Four of Ogletree's tackles helped BYU keep the Cowboys off the scoreboard on Wyoming's final drive of the game.
Hoffman finished with 104 kick return yards helping the Cougars establish field position from the start of the game. He returned the opening kickoff 34 yards to the BYU 42-yard line. That return, which marked a
career best for the Crescent City, Calif., native, led to a Cougar touchdown.
Hoffman also gave BYU field position at the 39-yard line and 27-yard line on two other returns. In total, he averaged 26.0 yards on four kick returns and finished the contest with a game-high 111 all-purpose yards.
