Cougars Spoil Lobos' Homecoming

Image

ALBUQUERQUE -- When you schedule a homecoming opponent, you're supposed to win--in theory. At least that was what the University of New Mexico may have been hoping when BYU was listed as its homecoming opponent this season.

The Cougars proved to be homecoming spoilers on Saturday, and gave BYU head coach Bronco Mendenhall his first Division I-A victory, scoring 14 unanswered points in the fourth quarter to claim a 27-24 come-from-behind victory over New Mexico.

"I asked the players to take it one play at a time," Mendenhall said. "Knowing it wasn't going to be easy, knowing New Mexico is a good football team, knowing that they have a rich tradition that Coach Long has established; we just asked our team to play four quarters as hard as they could, and they did and I'm proud of them."

Leading 24-19 with 2:48 remaining in the game, it appeared New Mexico would claim its first victory at University Stadium over the Cougars since 1997. With under three minutes remaining in the game, junior quarterback John Beck led the Cougars on a five-play, 80-yard drive that ended with the Cougars taking a three-point lead.

After Beck completed a 14-yard pass to running back Curtis Brown for a first down, he hooked up with sophomore receiver Matt Allen for a 23-yard, game-winning touchdown with just 1:40 remaining in the game.

A tough defensive stand forced the Lobos to turn the ball over on downs with 45 seconds remaining, sealing the Cougars' first Mountain West victory of the season. With the win, BYU improves to 2-3 on the season, including a 1-2 league record, while New Mexico falls to 3-3 overall and 1-2 in MWC action.

"I think they had a sense the game was in doubt, but I didn't see any panic until the last drive," UNM head coach Rocky Long said. "I saw a lot of panic on the last (BYU) drive. I told them I knew they were disappointed and I thought we did a lousy job of coaching. When they disintegrate at the end of the game, it's not their fault, it's the coaches' fault."

Beck finished the night with a game-high 371 yards passing, completing 34-of-44 attempts (.773) with three touchdowns on the evening. Beck's performance marks his third 300-yard game of the season--the seventh of his career.

"John Beck has proven himself in many different situations," Mendenhall said. "He was prepared well by the offensive coaching staff. He executed the plan when asked to in critical times and the best quarterbacks, that's what they do."

Brown had a game-high 104 yards rushing, marking the seventh time in his career he has eclipsed the 100-yard mark. Tight end Jonny Harline had a team-high 10 receptions, equaling a season-best 123 yards. Todd Watkins added six receptions for 68 yards, including a critical 29-yard reception during the Cougars' game-winning drive. Brown totaled five catches for 35 yards. All totaled 11 receivers were credited with at least one reception against the Lobos.

The defense, led by linebackers Cameron Jensen and Paul Walkenhorst held the Lobos scoreless in the fourth quarter, limiting UNM to just 66 total yards in the final period. Jensen and Walkenhorst finished the night with a combined 24 tackles, including a team-high 13 and 11 stops, respectively. Both Jensen and Walkenhorst missed last week's game at San Diego State due to injury.

Mendenhall said he was pleased with the team's effort down the stretch, and was impressed by their focus and determination.

"As we talked at halftime, I sensed that they could win this game," he said. "I sensed that they believed. I think they were determined to make it happen and they did. That is to their credit. That shows maybe the true nature of this team is starting to come out.

"I think it's who they are. I'm fortunate to be the coach of this football team. To have young men with this kind of character, we've been through a lot already and they've been resilient. They overcame adversity to the end and continued to believe in themselves and their coaches. I am proud of them and their performance this evening."

Early in the first quarter, the Cougars struck first when Beck found tight end Dan Coats for an 11-yard touchdown reception at the 10:17 mark of the first quarter, capping a 10-play, 80-yard drive to start the game. Jared McLaughlin's extra-point attempt was blocked by UNM's Marcus Parker. Coats' touchdown was his first since scoring against Stanford on Sept. 20, 2003.

The Lobos answered on the next series, taking a 7-6 lead on a 16-yard Travis Brown run. New Mexico covered 80 yards in six plays on the drive.

Following the UNM touchdown, the BYU defense settled down, forcing New Mexico to punt on its next two drives.

The Cougars started the second quarter like they started the first. Beck hooked up with back-up running back Joe Semanoff for a five-yard touchdown completion to give BYU a 13-7 lead with 11:27 remaining in the second quarter. The scoring drive covered 52 yards in seven plays.

The Lobos answered on the following drive, driving 76 yards in 10plays to take a 14-13 lead. McKamey capped the drive with a two-yard run--his third rushing touchdown of the season.

After the Cougars failed to convert on third-and-four from the BYU 47-yard line, BYU punted and pinned New Mexico at their own nine-yard line. BYU looked as if it would hold the Lobos on third-and-one when Daniel Marquardt appeared to have McKamey for a sack; however, the junior quarterback scrambled and connected with Hank Baskett down the right sideline for a 43-yard completion. On the next play, the Cougars were called for pass interference, giving UNM a first-and-goal from the BYU seven-yard line. Two plays later, Dontrell Moore crossed the goal line on a one-yard carry to give the Lobos what would be a 21-13 halftime lead.

After stopping the Lobos on the first drive of the second half, the Cougars drove 70 yards and appeared as if they would score when the Lobos forced the first turnover of the game. Beck's pass to Matt Allen was picked by Tyson Ditmore at the UNM two-yard line.

Following the interception, New Mexico drove 91 yards in 11 plays and scored on a 24-yard Kenny Byrd field goal to take a 24-13 lead with 3:00 left in the third quarter.

With just under 13:00 minutes left in the game, BYU got a much-needed break when Markell Staffieri recovered a McKamey fumble on the Cougars' own seven-yard line. The Cougars marched 93 yards in 13 plays, scoring on a nine-yard run by Brown to pull within five points with 7:15 remaining in the game.

BYU forced New Mexico to punt with 2:48 remaining in the game after cornerback Nate Soelberg stopped Hank Baskett for a two-yard loss on third-and-four from the UNM 47-yard line.

The Cougars return to Provo on Saturday, Oct. 15 to take on Colorado State. Game time is scheduled at 8 p.m. (MT).

COUGARS CONTINUE ROAD TRIP AT NEW MEXICO

After Saturday's 31-10 loss to San Diego State, BYU is now 1-3 overall and 0-2 in the Mountain West Conference. New Mexico is 3-2 overall and 1-1 in the MWC and is coming off a 49-28 loss to TCU. The Cougars and Aztecs were scoreless in the first quarter in last weekend's loss but San Diego State took control in the second quarter, outscoring BYU 17-3. The Aztecs extended their lead to 24-3 in the third before Fahu Tahi scored on a one-yard run to pull the Cougars within 14 at 24-10. San Diego State answered after Tahi's run, scoring the final touchdown of the day, and putting the game out of reach. John Beck threw for 261 yards on the night while Jonny Harline set career highs with seven receptions for 123 yards. Tahi also set career highs with eight catches for 80 yards.

It has now been 20 games since BYU has allowed its opponents to score a touchdown on its opening drive.

The Lobo offensive line weighs on average of 325.2 pounds while BYU's defensive line weighs an average of 317.3.

SCORELESS FIRST QUARTER

In BYU's game against San Diego State, both teams failed to score in the first quarter. It was the first time the Cougars were scoreless in the first since their season-opening loss to Boston College. The last time a BYU opponent threw a donut on the board in the first quarter was Eastern Illinois in the second game of the season. The last time neither the Cougars nor their opponent scored in the opening frame was on Oct. 8, 2004 against UNLV.

ALL IN THE FAMILY

When Zac Collie caught a seven-yard touchdown pass from John Beck on BYU's first drive of the day, it was the 13th touchdown scored by the Collie family for the Cougars. Zac's father, Scott Collie, scored four TD's when he played for the Cougars from 1979-82 and his brother Austin scored eight as a freshman in 2004. Zac added the 14th for the family later in the first quarter on a 37-yard reception from Beck to put BYU up 21-10. It was the second two-game touchdown for a member of the Collie family. Austin scored two against San Diego State in 2004.

FIRST TIME IN A LONG TIME

The Cougar offense exploded for 21 points in the first quarter against TCU behind the passing of John Beck. It was the first time BYU scored 21 points in the opening frame since a 56-34 win over Colorado State Nov. 1, 2001.

MWC PLAYER OF THE WEEK (Sept. 25)

John Beck was named the Mountain West Conference Offensive Player of the Week after posting a MWC record 517 yards passing in BYU's 51-50 loss to TCU. He completed 30-of-51 (.588) attempts, and became just the third player in league history to pass for over 500 yards in a game. Beck also tied a MWC single-game record with five touchdown passes. His third-quarter strike found wide receiver Todd Watkins for a 67-yard touchdown, marking the Cougars' longest score of the season. On the first play of the overtime period, Beck went to the corner of the end zone to find Watkins for the 25-yard touchdown, giving BYU a 50-44 lead in overtime.

BROTHERS DON'T SIT, BROTHERS GOTTA PLAY

BYU has a long tradition of several members from the same family suiting up to hit the gridiron. Brothers Lance, Jr. and Dallas Reynolds have started all four games this season. Lance, a senior, is on the watch list for the Rimington Trophy, awarded to the top center in the nation. Dallas, a freshman, was heavily recruited out of high school and joined the Cougars this season after serving an LDS mission in Seattle, Washington.

BIG-TIME YARDS

The BYU offense racked up 614 yards of total offense against TCU, including 97 on the ground and 517 in the air. It was the first time BYU had over 600 yard total offense since the Cougars had 615 yards against Syracuse in 2002. It was the first time since 1999 BYU had over 500 passing yards when Kevin Feterik had 501 against Washington. Saturday's game was the first time a quarterback had three-or-more touchdown passes since 2004 against San Diego State when Beck had three. Three of those touchdowns went to Todd Watkins, making it the first time since 2001 when Doug Jolley had three against Air Force. One of his scores was a 67-yard grab, the first time BYU scored on a 50-yard-or-more passing play since Austin Collie caught an 82-yarder against San Diego State in 2004. Watkins' 176 yards was the first time a receiver had 150-or-more yards since he had 153 against Air Force in 2004.

CAREER HIGHS AND SINGLE-GAME RECORDS

When John Beck completed a 37-yard pass to Jonny Harline against TCU, he had 420 passing yards, surpassing his career high of 390, which came against Boise State in 2004. He finished the day with a Mountain West single-game record 517 yards. Beck also set a new career high and tied a MWC record for touchdown passes with five when he completed a 25-yard scoring strike to Todd Watkins in overtime. His previous high was four against Air Force in 2004 when the Cougars won 41-24. Watkins finished with 176 yards and an MWC record three touchdowns.

STORK REPORT

BYU center Lance Reynolds and his wife, Becky, gave birth to an 8-pound baby boy on Sept. 26. Lance, Jr. and his wife named their son, whatelse? Lance Reynolds III.

HIGHEST SCORING GAME

BYU and TCU combined for 101 points in the Horned Frogs' 51-50 victory over the Cougars, making it the highest scoring game between Division I-A opponents this season. Texas Tech defeated Sam Houston State, a Division I-AA team, 80-21, on Sept. 17. The combined 101 points was also an MWC record for most points scored in a conference game.

OVERTIME

Before the Cougar's overtime loss to TCU, BYU was 5-0 in overtime games since it was implemented in 1996. BYU's last overtime game was a 27-20 victory at UNLV in 2003.

TOP 40s

When Curtis Brown punched the ball in from one yard out in the fourth quarter against TCU, BYU hit the 40-point mark for the second-straight game. BYU scored 45 against Eastern Illinois. The last time the Cougars had back-to-back 40-point games was in 2004 when they put up 41 against Air Force and 49 on San Diego State.
