BYU’s defense was forced to go to work early with Washington State on the offensive. After marching 60 yards, the Washington State offense found themselves at 3rd and 11 on BYU's 20-yard line. With the pressure mounting, Washington State quarterback Jeff Tuel rolled out of the pocket to find an open receiver but instead found BYU linebacker Uona Kaveinga to send the favor back to BYU.
