For his career, Hoyland has made 40 of 47 field goals (85.1 percent) and 74 of 74 PATs.

He has been named the Mountain West Conference Special Teams Player of the Week three times during his career.

In a win against Northern Colorado earlier this season, Hoyland made four field goals, tying a career high. It was the third time in his career that he had made four field goals in a single game. The other times were vs. Tulsa in 2022 and at Nevada in 2020. He was named MW Special Teams Player of the Week for each of those three games.

Hoyland earned Second Team All-Mountain West Conference honors in 2020, and he was also the only place-kicker named to the 2020 Football Writers Association of America (FWAA) Freshman All-America team.
