BYU Football: Statistical Leaders through Six Games

A look at BYU's statistical leaders after a 6-0 start.

BYU is 6-0 with an opportunity to improve to 7-0 with a game against WKU on Halloween. In most of their games thus far, the Cougars have been dominant. Here are BYU's statistical leaders through six games:

Passing Yards: Zach Wilson

Unsurprisingly, Zach Wilson leads the Cougars with 1,928 passing yards through six games. Wilson has been spectacular this season. You can watch some of his best throws of the season here.

Passing Touchdowns: Zach Wilson

Wilson has 16 passing touchdowns and only one interception through six games.

Rushing Yards: Tyler Allgeier

With each game, Tyler Allgeier has grown more and more into BYU's RB1. Allgeier has 492 rushing yards on 75 attempts - he also leads the team in yards per carry at 6.6 ypc.

Rushing Touchdowns: Tyler Allgeier & Zach Wilson

Both Tyler Allgeier and Zach Wilson have run for six touchdowns a piece this season. For those of keeping track, that means Zach Wilson has accounted for 22 touchdowns and one interception.

Receiving Yards:  Dax Milne

It's hard to remember the last time a BYU wide receiver played as well as Dax Milne played against Houston - Mitch Matthews against Utah State in 2015 comes to mind. Since Gunner Romney has been out with injury, Dax Milne has taken over as BYU's go-to wide receiver. Milne has 639 yards receiving through six games.

Receiving Touchdowns: Dax Milne

Dax Milne has five touchdown receptions this season. 

Tackles: Isaiah Kaufusi

Isaiah Kaufusi leads BYU with 37 tackles this season. Keenan Pili is not far behind with 32 tackles - Pili sat out last game with an injury. BYU's linebackers have been very good this season.

Sacks: Tyler Batty

Speaking of players that sat out against Texas State, Tyler Batty leads the Cougars with four sacks this season.

Interceptions: Troy Warner

Troy Warner has recorded two interceptions this season which are the first two interceptions of his career at BYU. Warner nearly had a third interception against Texas State.

Forced Fumbles: Isaiah Kaufusi

BYU has forced three fumbles as a team this season, Isaiah Kaufusi has forced two of those fumbles.

Passes Defended (deflected): Payton Wilgar

Payton Wilgar is one of my favorite players to watch, he has an uncanny ability to sneak into throwing lanes. Wilgar hasn't recorded an interception this season, but he has been awfully close on a few occasions. Wilgar leads the team with four passes defended.
