PROVO--Colorado State scored the game's first 14-points and didn't look back, defeating BYU 58-13 at the Cougars' Homecoming game Thursday night at LaVell Edwards Stadium.

The loss was the worst at home since a 48-0 drubbing by Wyoming in 1950 and also the most points ever given up at home by the Cougars.

Bradlee Van Pelt led the Rams with 192 yards passing and three touchdowns. Van Pelt also rushed for 51 yards. At one point the Ram quarterback was 3 for 3 for 122 yards and two touchdowns.

"Well, they just took it to us," coach Gary Crowton said. "They played really good football tonight. They're a good football team. They were ready to play and played well in all areas."

Crowton also said he was disappointed with the loss, but the team had to move on.

"It's disappointing, but that's the great thing about football, there's a game next week. We have to go out and play hard in Laramie," Crowton said.

BYU first scored on a 24-yard field goal by Matt Payne. During the scoring drive John Beck hit Rod Wilkerson for a 37-yard gain, bringing the Cougars to the 10-yard line, but the Cougars were unable to punch it in for a touchdown.

Beck finished the game 10 of 23 for 136 yards and one touchdown, and the Cougars were held to just 269 yards of total offense.

CSU would answer the Cougars score with a 59-yard touchdown strike from Van Pelt to Matt Bartz.

Trailing 21-3 after the first quarter, BYU would score on a nine-yard touchdown pass from Beck to Justin Jory, the first of Jory's career, to cut the Cougar deficit to 11 points, but BYU would get no closer.

The Cougars would add one more field goal by Payne to complete their scoring.
