Micah Simon’s clutch hands have been a highlight for BYU in his senior season.
On Saturday night, the former Texas high school quarterback got to show off his arm, too.
Simon caught a team-high seven passes for 91 yards and a touchdown, and added a 44-yard touchdown strike to Matt Bushman to help the Cougars out-gun the Flames 31-24 in front of an announced crowd of 54,683 fans at LaVell Edwards Stadium.
Baylor Romney threw for 262 yards and three touchdowns with an interception for BYU (5-4), which used a 24-3 spurt in the middle quarters to pull away from its fellow FBS independent football team.
Bushman finished with 86 yards and a touchdown, while Aleva Hifo added 62 yards receiving and a score. Sione Finau led the Cougars on the ground with 60 yards on nine carries.
Liberty quarterback Stephen Calvert threw for 303 yards and three touchdowns, including 162 yards and a score to star receiver Antonio Gandy-Golden for the Flames (6-4).
BYU held a Liberty team that averaged 33.8 points per game nearly 20 points below its season average.
