The good: Another season-opening drive that went for a touchdown.

The bad; Special teams and three major gaffes.

Visiting UW did hold on a key third-and-goal at the end of the quarter as BYU settled for a 22-yard field goal by Mitch Payne with 31 seconds to go, and the Huskies lead after one quarter.

The Huskies went 73 yards in six plays in 3:13 on their first drive, capped by Jake Locker’s 19-yard touchdown strike to Jermaine Kearse.

The UW held BYU to a pair of three-and-out drives to start the game, but the Cougars got the ball back after true freshman Gregory Ducre was called for roughing-the-punter penalty.

The other mistakes were a high snap on a punt by Brendan Lopez that resulted in a BYU safety, and Chris Polk slipping at the UW 2-yard line on a kickoff return.

Locker is 3-of-7 for 51 yards.
