Game 9 at Colorado State

No. 25 BYU dominated Wyoming 52-0 in Laramie to improve to 7-2 on the year and 4-1 in the Mountain West Conference. Max Hall completed 20-of-22 passes for 312 yards and four touchdowns in just over two quarters of action. After missing the last four games due to injury, wide receiver McKay Jacobson made his presence known in his return, totaling 100 yards receiving, including a 79-yard touchdown reception. All-American tight end Dennis Pitta also set a school record by making a catch in 39 consecutive games. The Cougars were dominating from the opening kickoff, scoring on all five first-half possessions while not allowing a Wyoming first down until the second quarter. Running back J.J. Di Luigi was a top performer early for the Cougars, totaling 72 receiving yards on three catches in the first quarter. BYU opened the game with an 80-yard drive that was capped off with Hall finding Di Luigi down the right sideline for a 44-yard scoring play. Mitch Payne converted a field goal from 36 yards on BYU’s next possession. Hall guided BYU to a 31-0 lead at the half with two more touchdown drives. The senior signal caller found Jacobson behind the defense for a 79-yard touchdown with 10:41 to go in the half. Hall then orchestrated a 10-play, 80-yard possession that Manase Tonga culminated with a six-yard run up the middle. The Cougars did not attempt a pass the remainder of the game but reserve quarterback Riley Nelson used his legs to gain 71 yards on 10 carries. BYU’s defense created three turnovers with defensive backs Brian Logan and Craig Bills each making interceptions and fellow DB Brandon Bradley forcing a fumble that was recovered by linebacker Shawn Doman.
