DALLAS (CBSSPORTS.COM) – Riley Nelson threw three touchdown passes to Cody Hoffman, the last with 11 seconds left, and Brigham Young beat Tulsa 24-21 on Friday in the Armed Forces Bowl for another 10-win season.

With no timeouts and the ball at the 2, the Cougars hurried up to the line. Nelson then faked a spike that would have stopped the clock and instead stood up and threw to Hoffman in the end zone.
