After a 4-9 campaign in 2017 and a long offseason, fans finally got their first chance to see the new-look BYU Cougars on Saturday night against the Arizona Wildcats.

Here are some of the things Twitter users had to say about the action on the field.

VICTORY

There were certainly some strong reactions to the Cougars' win after last season's struggles.

TOUCHDOWN!

Following a season in which the Cougars had one of the worst offenses in all of college football, they struck first on Saturday thanks to a Squally Canada rushing touchdown, and fans were certainly pleased.

NOT SO FAST...

The excitement over scoring first pretty quickly gave way to frustration as BYU surrendered 10 straight points and entered halftime trailing by a field goal.

Fans were particularly flustered when the Wildcats scored a touchdown with less than a minute before intermission and then the Cougars opted to run out the clock instead of move downfield.

TANNER MANGUM

A number of fans were frustrated by quarterback Tanner Mangum's play.
